Toray Industries has announced that five of its subsidiaries – Toray Carbon Fibers Europe, Zoltek, Composite Materials, Delta-Preg and Toray Advanced Composites – will take part in Composite Europe 2019, the European tradefair & forum for composites, technology and applications. The event will be held at Messe Stuttgart, Germany, from September 10-12. 

For the first time, the subsidiaries of Toray will collectively showcase integrated solutions from diverse product lineups leveraging the group's comprehensive materials and process technology capabilities, said Toray in a press release.

Over the years, Toray has amassed a strong reputation for consistently excellent quality and reliability. In recent years, it has devoted considerable effort to developing carbon fibres with ultrahigh tensile strengths and elastic modulus performance, overcoming an ostensible trade-off between those two attributes.

One such offering is Torayca T1100, which has remained the world's strongest carbon fibre since its launch in 2014. An ever-growing range of applications for this product includes high-end sports equipment, race cars, and aerospace structural materials. In November 2018, Toray expanded its lineup with the Torayca MX series of prepregs, including Torayca M40X, which delivers 30 per cent more tensile strength. The company plans to keep bolstering its lineup in this series to match emerging market needs.

Toray has positioned carbon fibre composites as a strategic growth business under Project AP-G 2019, its medium-term management programme. The company is accordingly investing heavily and undertaking technical R&D to expand this business. Toray will strengthen group wide collaboration to swiftly capitalise on market opportunities, helping to lighten parts and components in aircraft, automobiles, and other areas, resulting in energy savings. It will also transform societies by harnessing the power of materials to contribute to such fossil fuel alternative energy fields as natural gas and hydrogen gas tanks and such renewable energy areas as wind turbine blades.
