The article reports on the plan of Ticona to build a long-fibre reinforced thermoplastics (LFRT) compounding facility and an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene plant in the Asia-Pacific region. A 2000 tonne per year Celstran LFRT production line was expected to be running by the third quarter of 2007. The company considered China as the location of its plants. The country is one of the fastest growing markets for engineering thermoplastics worldwide.
