Teijin to Showcase Latest Carbon and Aramid Fibre Composites at China Composites Expo

04 September 2012

Toho Tenax and Shanghai-based Teijin Aramid Asia will participate in China Composites Expo 2012 which will take place at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center in Shanghai, China, from 5th to 7th September, 2012.

According to Teijin, customers will be able to visit the two booths to learn about innovative new concepts for carbon- and aramid-fibre-reinforced composites.

Toho Tenax says it will showcase advanced applications of carbon fibre reinforced plastics, including large-scale model aircraft for racing and smartphone and tablet casings made with ultra-lightweight carbon fibre fabrics, and other moulded products such as bicycle wheels and automotive diffusers from its booth  number 924.

Teijin Aramid Asia says it will introduce two filament yarns - Twaron Black and Technora Black - both deep-black versions of high-modulus para-aramid fibres that were originally launched in gold colour from its booth number 1125. It says these are highly suited to applications requiring strength, weight-reduction and beauty, such as mobile phone casings, boat sails, hockey sticks and other sporting goods. Additional applications such as reinforcements for concrete, ships and gears/bearings also will be introduced.
