Toho Tenax Europe and Teijin Kasei Europe will exhibit high-performance products at ‘Plastics in Automotive Engineering 2014’ in Mannheim, Germany.
Toho Tenax states it will present its Tenax carbon fibre products at the show. It says it will focus on the technology “Part via Preform” (PvP) which is based on a one-step “bobbin to preform” process. Toho Tenax developed its PvP technology by utilising Tenax binder yarn, which combines carbon fibers with binder resin. It claims this yarn allows the automated manufacturing of preforms directly into the three-dimensional geometry of the final component. By combining randomly orientated carbon fibers with unidirectional carbon fibers, preforms achieve a tradeoff between mechanical properties and cost.
According to Teijin Kasei, its stand will present its Multilon PC/ABS and its Panlite PC resins suitable for automotive applications and its latest plastic glazing technology. It will demonstrate the comprehensive process starting with the right raw material selection, followed by choosing a proper moulding- and coating technology. Only the combination of all production steps will end up in a light weight glazing part which can compete with standard glazing.
On 2nd and 3rd April 2014 in Mannheim, Germany, about 1400 people are expected to will visit the international plastics conference ‘Plastics in Automotive Engineering 2014’.
Kordsa, operating in tire, construction reinforcement and composites technologies market with its mission ‘We Reinforce Life’, has launched a new campaign with the slogan ‘Inspired from life, we reinforce life’.
