Teijin increases capacity of carbon fiber in Germany

June 30/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Teijin says that its subsidiary Teijin Carbon Europe (Heinsberg, Germany) has increased the production capacity of chopped carbon fiber by 40%, according to Chemweek.

The company says that it is responding to the growing demand from European electronics manufacturers in recent years, as well as the current increase in demand for compounds for medical devices.

Teijin says that European customers' demand has been partly met by its Mishima plant in Japan. With the increased German capacity, Teijin can now "react more flexibly to inquiries in the European market."

Other product types of its brand Tenax short fiber-chopped, pelletized or milled - are produced at facilities in Japan and the US, it says. They are supplied in a variety of sizings to be used, besides thermoplastic materials, with thermosets and in water-based processes.

As MRC reported before, Teijin Ltd. is expanding its footprint in Europe with Teijin Automotive Center Europe GmbH, a new base in Wuppertal, Germany, that will house technical functions for the companys automotive composites business.

Polypropylene (PP) is used in the production of autocomponents, as well as yarns and fibre.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market totalled 347,440 tonnes in January-April 2020 (calculated by the formula production minus export plus import). Supply exclusively of PP random copolymer increased.

Teijin is a technology-driven global group offering advanced solutions in the areas of sustainable transportation, information and electronics, safety and protection, environment and energy, and healthcare. Its main fields of operation are high-performance fibers such as aramid, carbon fibers & composites, healthcare, films, resin & plastic processing, polyester fibers, products converting and IT. The group has some 150 companies and around 17,000 employees spread out over 20 countries worldwide.
