Celanese Corporation operates as a technology and specialty materials company. The company’s product portfolio serves a range of end-use applications, including paints and coatings, textiles, automotive applications, consumer and medical applications, performance industrial applications, filter media, paper and packaging, chemical additives, construction, consumer and industrial adhesives, and food and beverage applications. Segments The company operates principally through four business segments, including Advanced Engineered Materials, Consumer Specialties, Industrial Specialties, and Acetyl Intermediates. Advanced Engineered Materials This segment uses polymer technology to produce a portfolio of specialty polymers used in a wide spectrum of applications, including automotive, medical and electronics products, as well as other consumer and industrial applications. The company’s specialty polymers have chemical and physical properties that enable them to perform in various conditions. These include enduring elevated temperatures, resisting adverse chemical interactions with solvents and withstanding deformation. Polyoxymethylene (POM), Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and Long-fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFT) are used in a range of performance-demanding applications, including automotive components, medical devices, electronics, appliances and industrial applications. GUR ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is used in battery separators, conveyor belts, filtration equipment, coatings and medical devices. Primary end uses for Liquid crystal polymers (LCP) are electrical and electronics applications or products. These value-added applications in diverse end-uses support the business' global growth trends. Its engineered materials business has polymerization, compounding and research and technology centers in Brazil, China, Germany, and the United States. Key Products POM: POM, also commonly known as polyacetal in the chemical industry, is sold by the company’s engineered materials business under the trademarks Celcon and Hostaform. POM is used for mechanical parts in automotive applications, including fuel system components, and in electrical, medical and consumer applications, such as drug delivery systems and gears for large appliances. Polyplastics Co., Ltd., the company’s 45%-owned strategic affiliate, and Korea Engineering Plastics Co., Ltd., its 50%-owned strategic affiliate, also manufacture POM and other engineering resins in the Asia-Pacific region. The company’s engineered materials business sources formaldehyde in the U.S. from its intermediate chemistry business and manufactures formaldehyde in Germany from purchased methanol. Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene: The company’s ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene products, sold under the trademark GUR, are highly engineered materials designed for heavy-duty industrial and automotive applications. They are used in items, such as industrial conveyor belts, car battery separator panels, as well as specialty medical and consumer applications, such as sports prostheses and equipment. GUR ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene micro powder grades are used for high-performance filters, membranes, diagnostic devices, coatings and additives for thermoplastics and elastomers. High tenacity fibers based on GUR ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene are also used in protective ballistic applications. The primary raw material for GUR ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene is ethylene. Polyesters: The company’s products include a series of thermoplastic polyesters, including Celanex PBT, Celanex PET (polyethylene terephthalate), Thermx PCT (polycyclohexylene-dimethylene terephthalate) and Vandar, as well as Riteflex, a thermoplastic polyester elastomer. They are used in various automotive, electrical and consumer applications, including ignition system parts, radiator grilles, electrical switches, appliance and sensor housings, light emitting diodes (LEDs) and technical fibers. LFT: Celstran, Compel, and Factor are long-fiber reinforced thermoplastics that impart extra strength and stiffness, making them more suitabl
