Teijin announces that it has been awarded a contract to supply its Tenax carbon fibre material to Bombardier Aerostructures and Engineering Services for another seven years until 2025.
Teijin focuses on aircraft business as one of the growth strategies in its medium-term management plan for 2017-2019 and is intensively accelerating its development of mid- to downstream applications, such as cost-effective carbon fibres with higher-tenacity and higher-tensile modulus, intermediate materials including TENAX TPUD, carbon fibre thermoplastic consolidated laminate
(TENAX TPCL), thermoset prepreg and non-crimp fabric. Going forward, Teijin intends to further strengthen its carbon fibre and its intermediate material business as a leading solution provider for aircraft applications,targeting annual sales in this field in excess of USD 900 million by around 2030.
Teijin was awarded a contract by Bombardier to supply Tenax for major primary and secondary composite structures in 2010 and Tenax Carbon Fibre has been used for primary structure applications including wing, centre wing box structures and empennage applications.
