Teijin, a technology-driven global group operating in the fields of advanced fibers, plastics & films, composites, healthcare, and IT businesses is set to participate in Composites Europe taking place in Stuttgart, Germany. Teijin Carbon Europe will be showcasing its fiber materials which include Tenax carbon fibers that greatly enhance properties in thermoset and a thermoplastic reinforced composite material. Teijin particularly emphases on Tenax nickel-coated carbon fibers that have the mechanical properties of carbon fiber and good electrical conductivity of nickel. In the showcase, Teijin also plans to include Tenax ThermoPlastics (TPUD and TPCL) that offer rapid production and processing, low scrap rates, high mechanical performance, strong chemical resistance, and recyclability.
CSP will also feature automotive parts that will include advanced Lightweight Composites which are dent-free, corrosion-resistant, cost-effective and attain unique styling cues unattainable with metals. Premium Class A material, which can withstand the E-coat process, is used for a number of jobs. Furthermore, the composite automotive door concept will also be introduced which is made from a glass fiber sheet molded compound (SMC). This offers multiple benefits such as cost efficiency, equal to that of an aluminum door module, and the ability to achieve deep draws and superior design freedom not possible with metal. The solution is designed to endure the heat level of the conventional E-coat automotive painting process.
Apart via Preform (PvP) that enables serial production of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) automotive parts. The process includes the carbon fiber being sprayed, blended and cut automatically into net-shape preforms which helps to minimize carbon fiber waste and reduced intermediate processing. The injection process is handled by the advanced resin transfer molding (RTM) technology. Assembly carrier for the Porsche GT3 Cup II will be exhibited.
Be sure to visit Teijin in Hall 7, Stand A26 at Composites Europe in Stuttgart, Germany, 10-12 September 2019.
