Teijin to open CFRTP composite application centre in US

TOKYO, JAPAN/AUBURN HILLS, US: Teijin Limited, on April 1st will open the Teijin composites application centre (TCAC), a technical centre to develop automotive and other industrial applications of carbon fibre reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) composite products, in Auburn Hills, Michigan. The TCAC is part of Teijin Advanced Composites America Inc (TACA), a company Teijin established in December 2011 to conduct marketing and develop applications for CFRTP composite products.

Teijin’s CFRTP composite business is centered on its innovative technology for high volume production of CFRTP components with cycle times of less than a minute, a breakthrough that overcomes one of the biggest challenges in automotive industry and represents a move towards increasing usage of carbon fibre in automobiles and other products.

In December, Teijin signed an agreement with General Motors to co-develop advanced carbon fibre composite technologies for potential high-volume use in GM cars, trucks and crossovers. This co-development will take place at the TCAC. Teijin will continue to develop markets in the field of carbon fibre composite products, aiming at annual sales of ¥150 to 200 billion by around 2020.
