Teijin is expanding Technora para-aramid fibre output 10 per cent by increasing capacity in its Matsuyama factory at a cost of ¥1.5 billion, with operation slated to begin in October 2017.

According to a press release, Teijin and its aramid-fibres business division Teijin Aramid B.V. will jointly expand worldwide sales of Technora in response to increasing market demand worldwide.

“High-performance composite materials offering new value are one of the four business pillars in the transformation and growth strategies of Teijin's current medium-term business plan,” it said.

Promising fields for Teijin's high-performance fibres include infrastructure and energy, safety, functional paper and filters, and mobility.

By boosting Technora capacity, the company is putting a higher priority on leveraging high-performance materials in advanced solutions to meet diverse demands in the global market.

Renowned for their strength, tensile modulus and resistance to impact, Teijin's Twaron and Technora para-aramid fibres are used worldwide.

Applications include reinforcement materials for automobile rubber parts and composites to civil engineering ropes and cables, and protective clothing.

Technora is produced by Teijin Limited in Japan and Twaron is produced by Teijin Aramid in the Netherlands.

“Technora features high tensile strength and resistance to impact, fatigue, chemicals, moisture and heat,” the Japanese company added in a press release.

It takes advantage of these superior properties in order to meet the specific requirements of a range of applications such as reinforcement materials for transmission belt, hose and ground.

Both fibres can withstand temperatures of up to 400°C and offer exceptional strength for bulletproof and stab-resistant protective clothing.

They also are excellent materials for automotive brake pads and reinforcement in tires and fiber-optic cables.

Teijin 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.

The group has some 150 companies and around 16,000 employees spread over 20 countries worldwide and posted consolidated sales of JPY786.2 billion or $6.6 billion in fiscal ending March 31, 2015. (AR)
