Teijin to enter high-performance polyethylene market

November 10/2010

(JCN Newswire) -- Teijin Limited announced that it will enter the high-performance polyethylene (HP-PE) market by establishing its first production facility in Emmen, the Netherlands, aiming to start commercial production in the second half of 2011.


Teijin plans to grow its HP-PE business quickly through innovation and market cultivation, targeting a global market share of 15% to 20% by 2015.


HP-PE, which generally comes in the form of fibers or tapes, is produced with ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene polymers. Being highly resistant to impact, cutting, wear and chemicals while offering outstanding toughness and strength, HP-PE has a wide range of applications, including reinforced plastics, protective materials, ropes, nets and medical materials.


By adding HP-PE to its product portfolio the Teijin Group will further pursue a position as a world leader in ultra-high-performance materials.


Based in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan, Teijin is a global technology-driven group operating in eight main fields: aramid fibers, carbon fibers, polyester fibers, plastics, films, medical & pharmaceuticals, fiber products marketing and IT businesses. The group had consolidated sales of USD 8.5 billion in fiscal 2009 and employs 18,778 people worldwide, with 156 companies around the world.
