Teijin to build new meta-aramid fiber plant in Thailand            

By Gerald Ondrey |

Teijin Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan; www.teijin.co.jp) has developed a new type of meta-aramid fiber offering the world’s highest level of heat resistance combined with excellent dyeablility, which the company will produce in a facility to be built in Ayutthaya Province, Thailand. Construction begins this December and production is scheduled from July 2015. The newly developed fiber will strengthen the Teijin group’s global presence in the protective apparel market, where demand for high-performance materials is increasing. Teijin will invest around ¥4.5 billion ($45 million) to build the plant on the premises of Teijin (Thailand) Ltd. When completed, the plant will nearly double the annual capacity of Teijin’s global meta-aramid fiber production. New production technologies developed by Teijin enable the new meta-aramid fiber to achieve unsurpassed heat resistance and excellent dyeablity, providing customers with more diversified solutions for the design and manufacture of protective apparel.
