TOKYO, JAPAN: Teijin Limited has developed a new type of meta-aramid fibre which will be produced in a facility to be built in Ayutthaya Province, Thailand. The new meta-aramid fibre will offer the world’s highest level of heat resistance combined with excellent dyeablility.

The construction will begin from December 2013 and production is scheduled from July 2015. The newly developed fibre will strengthen the Teijin’s global presence in the protective apparel market, where demand for high-performance materials is increasing. The plant with $45 million investment will nearly double the annual capacity of Teijin’s global meta-aramid fibre production.

“We have supported the global market for protective apparel over decades with our high-performance materials, such as Teijinconex meta-aramid, Twaron and Technora para-aramid, Pyromex flame-resistant fiber and since recently with Endumax high-performance polyethylene,” said Masaya Endo, Executive Officer and General Manager, High-Performance Fibre business unit, Teijin group.

“The new type of meta-aramid fibre strengthens Teijin’s competitiveness in the emerging economies and Asia, where the demand for heat-proof and flame-retardant high-performance materials is growing due to increasing safety regulations, and in North America and Europe, where the demand is high for advanced solutions that combine comfort and maneuverability with high protection,” added Endo.
