Customers visiting the Teijin booth (stand AL04) will be able to learn about applications for carbon- and aramid-fibre-reinforced composites developed by the Teijin group.
Toho Tenax will introduce the latest technology in carbon-fibre-reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) by presenting an ultra-thin CFRTP housing measuring just 0.6mm in thickness, newly developed for use in smartphones and tablets. Also presented will be other moulded products, such as bicycle wheels made with improved ultra-lightweight carbon fibre fabrics, and specially designed carbon fibres for pressure vessels.
Teijin Aramid Asia will showcase two filament yarns – Twaron Black and Technora Black – deep-black versions of high-modulus para-aramid fibres that were originally available only in yellow. They are highly suited to applications requiring stiffness, strength, lightness and beauty, such as boat hulls and sails, hockey sticks, motorcycle helmets and other sporting goods. Other applications of aramid composites will also be presented, such as use in civil engineering, speaker cones and rods for circuit breakers.
High-strength, high-modulus carbon fibres and aramid fibres are often combined with resin as composite materials for a variety of lightweight products. Composite materials offer attractive energy-saving and eco-minded solutions, and are increasingly in demand in China, which the Teijin Group has positioned as one of its key markets for future growth.
