VECTRA® and ZENITE® – LCP from Celanese

K.D. Feddersen Is Your Distributor for VECTRA® and ZENITE® LCP from Celanese

Liquid Crystal Polymers for Demanding Applications

VECTRA® and ZENITE® liquid crystal polymers (LCP) from Celanese are a range of high-performance thermoplastics with special product properties. These highly crystalline, thermotropic thermoplastics are distinguished from other semi-crystalline plastics by their special molecular structure, which consists of rigid, rod-like macromolecules that are ordered during the melt phase to form liquid crystal structures.

VECTRA® LCP and ZENITE® LCP exhibit very good temperature behaviour, high chemical resistance, outstanding dimensional stability and are inherently flame-resistant. In the melt phase, LCPs have low viscosity, which makes it possible to manufacture delicate injection-moulded parts with high precision and dimensional accuracy. The VECTRA® and ZENITE® product range includes numerous LCP grades for injection moulding, extrusion, co-extrusion and blow moulding.
