Teijin to expand carbon-fiber production in Germany

By Mary Page Bailey |

Teijin Carbon Europe GmbH, Teijin Group’s (Toyko) carbon fiber business in Europe, has increased the production capacity of its German produced chopped carbon fiber (of the brand type Tenax-E HT C604 6mm) by 40%. The company is thus responding to the growing demand by European electronics manufacturers in recent years, as well as to currently increasing needs for compounds for medical devices.

Teijin will increased capacity for chopped carbon fiber of type Tenax-E HT C604 6mm

Demand for C604 has increased significantly 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 flexibly 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 sizes to be used, as thermoplastic materials, with thermosets and in water-based processes.
