Diversified Structural Composites (DSC), a Teijin Group subsidiary in Kentucky, is attending JEC World 2017, the largest composites show. The company is displaying pultruded composite profiles, called pultrusions, which help reduce automobile body and structure weight and raise the performance of industrial materials while maintaining cost competitiveness.
Pultrusion is a cost-effective manufacturing process for forming long-length shapes for a wide range of general industrial purposes. It is used in automotive linear-structure materials. The exhibits showcase relatively large samples of pultruded composites, such as those for automobiles and wind turbines.
DSC, which was established in 1978 and became a Teijin subsidiary in 2008, is a leader in pultruded composites and has been expanding its pultrusion business mainly in blade structures of wind turbines, profiles for down-hole oil and gas operations, automotive, and aerospace composites. The company produces components to customised performance and cost specifications by designing cross-sectional shapes utilising a selection of high-performance resins, which it then combines with reinforcement fibres, such as carbon, glass or aramid.
Teijin continues to strengthen its capabilities as a tier 1 supplier that fully meets customer needs and specifications for enhanced-strength thermoplastic and thermosetting resins combined with carbon, glass and aramid fibres, with form moulding technologies such as pressing, sheet moulding compound, resin transfer moulding or pultrusions taking advantages of its efficient mechanical characteristics.
