Toho Tenax introduces new HTS-type

28 March 2011

The portfolio of high tenacity carbon fibers will be expanded by the new product Tenax-E HTS45 E23 12K 800tex.

The improved fiber-matrix adhesion is designed to give high and balanced mechanical properties in various resin systems and has significant advantage for structural parts under fatigue load. High spreadability also enables low areal weights to be achieved in textile production and allows a very even, consistent surface finish to the fabric.

Tenax-E HTS45 E23 12K 800tex is produced in Germany and available world-wide. This type is already successfully used in industrial applications and is now also available for aerospace applications. Toho Tenax will present this new filament yarn Tenax HTS45 E23 for the first time at the JEC 2011 in Paris.

In addition, this year marks the 25th anniversary of carbon fibre production of Toho Tenax Europe in Germany. In 1986 Tenax carbon fibre production was started in Germany under the previous owners (Enka, Akzo Nobel), and Toho Tenax will celebrate its success story at JEC 2011 in Paris.
