Teijin to show automotive parts solutions at Chinaplas

May 20, 2019 - Japan

Teijin Ltd, a technology-driven global group, will participate in Chinaplas 2019, Asia’s largest exhibition for plastics and rubber industries, to be held at China Import & Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, China from May 21-24. At the fair, Teijin will introduce solutions for automotive parts and components that combine its advanced technologies and materials.

Teijin, marking its 20th appearance at the event, will operate at booth no 11.2K41. The booth will also present Teijin’s high-performance materials for multi-material parts that contribute to weight reduction and improved performance in automobiles. In addition, seminars to introduce advanced resin-processing technologies and solutions for automotive components will be held again this year, following last year’s favorable reception, said the company in a media statement.

Specific exhibits at the fair will include Polycarbonate (PC)-resin pillar-less automotive front window, aqueous transparent flame retardant coating and Tenax carbon-fibre-reinforced thermoplastics (CFRTP).

The world’s first PC-resin window for use in commercial vehicles has been realised with Teijin’s proprietary hard-coating technology for superb resistance to abrasion and weather. The one-piece wrap-around PC-resin window does not incorporate standard window pillars, achieving unobstructed sight lines for safer driving and more enjoyable sightseeing as well as weight reduction.

Landex Coat Flame Retardant Clear, the world’s first aqueous transparent flame retardant coating, developed jointly by Dainichi Giken Kogyo Co, Daimaru Kogyo Ltd and Teijin, can be applied to a wide range of combustible materials, including timber, paper, fibre, rubber and plastic. The product is applied directly to surfaces to enhance flame retardancy while maintaining the materials’ original surface textures as a transparent coating.

Teijin will showcase carbon fibre prepregs and CFRTPs made with Tenax and thermoplastic matrix resins including Teiijn’s Panlite polycarbonate resin, that offer many uses in growth industries such as automobiles, aerospace and electronics. (PC)
