Teijin announces that the A350 XWB aircraft, Airbus’s new-generation extra-wide-body midsize jetliner incorporating Teijin’s Tenax TPCL carbon fibre thermoplastic consolidated laminate, was delivered to Japan Airlines (JAL) and arrived at Haneda Airport in Tokyo on 14 June.

As a top supplier to Airbus for over 30 years, Teijin has provided the aircraft maker with Tenax carbon fibre for a variety of aircraft families. In May 2014, Tenax TPCL was registered in Airbus’s qualified products list for the world’s first use of carbon fibre reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) in primary structure parts for Airbus’s aircraft. Tenax TPCL, which utilises carbon fibre composites made with high impact, heat and chemical resistant PEEK (polyetheretherketone) thermoplastic resin, are supplied by Teijin Carbon Europe in Germany.

Teijin is increasingly emphasising strong, lightweight, high-performance materials that offer environmentally sensitive solutions for improved fuel efficiency. Teijin is focusing its carbon fibre business on the aircraft field, where it is rapidly developing midstream and downstream applications. Going forward, Teijin intends to further strengthen its carbon fibre and its intermediate material business as a leading solution provider for aircraft applications.
