Teijin increases capacity of carbon short fiber

Teijin Carbon Europe GmbH, the Teijin Group's carbon fiberbusiness in Europe, has increased the production capacity of its German produced chopped carbon fiber type Tenax®-E HT C604 6mm by 40%. The companyis thus responding to the growing demand byEuropean electronics manufacturers in recent years, as well as to currently increasing needs for compounds for medical devices.

The success  of  the German chopped product  C604  is based  on  its excellent  quality, enabling the production of high-grade compounds (plastic granulate reinforced with carbon fiber) with superior mechanical properties and good electrical conductivity.

Demand for C604 has increased significantly in recent years. So far, demand of European customers has partly been satisfied by delivering the same producttype produced at Teijin’s Mishima plant in Japan. With the increased German capacity, Teijin can now react more flexible to inquiries in the European market.
