Kuraray expands Vectran fiber production, Saijo City

20
Mar '08
Kuraray Co Ltd a leader in the synthetic fiber industry, has completed expansion of its Vectran fiber manufacturing facility in Saijo City, Japan.

The manufacturing facility in Fort Mill, S.C. has also undergone recent improvements, in preparation for additional capacity set to come on-line in May 2008.

The company said it is increasing production of its Vectran fiber by 40 percent, to 1,000 tons annually. This fiber is the world's only multifilament yarn melt spun from liquid crystal polymer (LCP) and is used in a wide range of applications where strength, durability and dimensional stability are critical to performance and safety.

These high-performance fibers are marketed around the world in more than 50 segments, from ropes and cables, to aerospace, military, industrial, composites, recreation and leisure, and cut resistance.

Vectran's uses range from deep sea heavy lifting systems and helicopter slings to puncture-resistant bicycle tires, inflatable wind turbine generators, sails and NASA space systems.

“We manufacture a very unique fiber whose combination of properties meets demanding performance requirements where other fibers fail,” said Elizabeth G. Stoner, Ph D, the Vectran division's general manager, based in Fort Mill, S.C.

“We see many opportunities to expand the use of Vectran fiber. We are growing rapidly and this capacity expansion is enabling us to better service our customers globally.”
