The success of the German chopped product C604 is based on its quality, enabling the production of high-grade compounds (plastic granulate reinforced with carbon fiber) with superior mechanical properties and good electrical conductivity. Demand for C604 has increased in recent years. So far, demand of European customers has partly been satisfied by delivering the same product type produced at Teijin’s Mishima plant in Japan. With the increased German capacity, Teijin can now react more flexible to inquiries in the European market.
Other product types of Tenax® short fiber – chopped, pelletized or milled – are produced at facilities in Japan and the US. They are supplied in a variety of sizings to be used, besides thermoplastic materials, with thermosets and in water-based processes.
Teijin is further strengthening the development of its carbon fiber product portfolio and aims to be a company that supports the society of the future by delivering innovative high-performance materials and solutions with real value.
