About the Product Family

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 from Celanese exhibit very good temperature behaviour, high chemical resistance, outstanding dimensional stability and an inherent flame resistance. 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 from Celanese includes numerous LCP grades for injection moulding, extrusion, co-extrusion and blow moulding.
