Teijin to more than double carbon-fiber prepreg production capacity in the U.S.

By Mary Page Bailey |

Teijin Ltd. (Toyko) announced that its carbon fiber subsidiary Renegade Materials Corp., a leading U.S.-based supplier of highly heat-resistant thermoset prepregs, resins and adhesives for the aerospace industry, will expand its prepreg production approximately 2.5-fold. The increased capacity, which aligns with Renegade’s capacity expansion strategy at its Miamisburg, Ohio location, is the result of a $4-million investment made in December 2019. Construction was started in March

2020. Operation of the new production lines will commence January 2022.

Renegade Materials’ heat-resistant thermoset prepregs, resins and adhesives are trusted by U.S. and European aircraft manufacturers and aircraft engine suppliers. Renegade holds expertise in the production of both high heat-resistant RTM resins and adhesives from low toxicity materials, as well as in unique thermal-cycle resistant prepregs.

The company’s proprietary heat-resistant thermoset prepregs are being utilized in the manufacture of next-generation aircraft. By boosting its prepreg capacity, the company is prioritizing the use of high-performance materials in the production of advanced aerospace solutions and industrial applications to meet diverse demands in the global market.
