5 Mar 2015

The Teijin group announced that it will exhibit a wide range of high-performance composite products at JEC Europe 2015.

The Teijin booth (hall 7.3, booth M17/K18) will be organized by the Toho Tenax Group (TTG) and Teijin Composites Innovation Center (TCIC), the group’s core carbon-fibers businesses, Teijin Aramid B.V., the group’s core aramid-fibers business, and Teijin Kasei Europe B.V., the group’s core resin and plastic business.

The Toho Tenax Group will feature its newly developed Tenax thermoplastics, called TPUD and TPCL, and Tenax Part via Preform (PvP). Tenax PvP, a resin transfer molding (RTM) production method using net shape preforms manufactured with highly efficient carbon-fiber placement technologies. TTG will also present Tenax Dry Reinforcements, a lightweight, non-crimp-fabric, and Tenax Rapid Curing Prepreg (RCP). RCP, which is a press-molding prepreg that cures in three minutes at 150°C, increases the productivity of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) manufacturing and is suitable for structural uses and high surface applications. Additionally, Diversified Structural Composites, an affiliate of Toho Tenax America, Inc., will exhibit pultrusion parts, including complex linear profiles, rods, tubes, flats and complex geometries. TCIC will showcase Sereebo, the world’s first mass-production technology for thermoplastic CFRP, which improves production efficiency by significantly reducing production tact time to less than one minute. Sereebo products provide useful solutions for high-volume mass production of structural components.

Teijin Aramid B.V. will showcase Twaron and Twaron black, the first high-modulus black para-aramid yarn, along with Technora and also Endumax, an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). Composite materials based on Twaron, Technora or Endumax offer attractive energy-saving and eco-minded solutions. Twaron or Technora are used in applications requiring stiffness, strength, damage tolerance or great aesthetics, such as leisure boat hulls and sails, hockey sticks, motorcycle helmets and other sporting goods. Twaron and Endumax also provide endless opportunities for solutions demanding lightweight protection.

Teijin Kasei Europe B.V. will present several plastic glazing parts made from Polycarbonate (PC) and PC/ABS. Polycarbonate (PC) Panlite and PC/ABS Multilon glazing realizes weight reduction, and further requirements such as scratch and UV resistance are offered by Teijin’s special coating systems. Multilon is a popular material for achieving high impact resistance and dimensional stability.
