Teijin Frontier has launched a new eco-minded adhesive for rubber reinforcing fibre that does not use resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) but still achieves same level of performance as conventional methods. The new adhesive is one of Teijin Frontier’s latest ‘Think Eco’ applications to protect the environment in fields ranging from fashion to industrial textiles.

The product will be test marketed beginning this year. The company is targeting annual production of 200,000 tons in 2028.

Resorcinol-formaldehyde latex (RFL) adhesives have long been used to reinforce rubber products, such as tires, with fibre to maintain strength and morphological stability. In recent years, however, demands have been growing for solutions that do not use RF, which has been shown to have harmful effects on the human body.

The new adhesive uses a non-RF blended polymer for bonding. The polymer, which is reticulated by intermolecular interaction, achieves a high level of adhesiveness, equivalent to that of an RFL adhesive thanks to its high affinity for both fibre and rubber.

Going forward, Teijin Frontier will continue to develop diverse applications for various kinds of rubber materials including tires, belts, hoses and more.

Teijin Frontier Co, Ltd, the Teijin Group's fibres and products converting company,

Teijin is a technology-driven global group offering advanced solutions in the areas of environmental value; safety, security and disaster mitigation; and demographic change and increased health consciousness. Its main fields of operation are high-performance fibres such as aramid, carbon fibres & composites, healthcare, films, resin & plastic processing, polyester fibres, products converting and IT.
