- 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 6: “Development of a Monolithic, Thermoplastic Composite Type IV Pressure Vessel for Hydrogen Storage on Automobiles” by Greg Clark and David Almond of Celanese, and Dr. Matthew Turner and Andrew Clarke of EPL Composite Solutions. They will highlight their study to design a vessel and develop a manufacturing process for an all-thermoplastic composite storage cylinder for use in fuel-cell automobiles.
- Hostaform® PTX POM Series: A new flexible high-impact acetal copolymer (POM) for in-tank automotive fuel tubing, which offers excellent toughness and resilience (-40 degrees Celsius), broad chemical resistance, low moisture absorption and superior dimensional stability. This injection and extrudable POM has similar mechanicals to PA11-P and PA12-P but is oligomer free.
- Flexible Fortron® PPS: This next generation flexible polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) provides superior high temperature resistance above 135 degrees Celsius, toughness and resilience to -40 degrees Celsius, chemical resistance to road salt and automotive fluids, no contamination related to oligomers or plasticizers and excellent permeation resistance. In addition, it is compatible with existing processing and forming technologies.
- Fortron ICE 717F PPS: Developed for long-term performance with aggressive fuels, this new polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) withstands the increased operating temperatures of hot diesel engines and enables higher efficiency pumps with less energy consumption thanks to tighter dimensional stability.
