Teijin to boost highly heat-resistant carbon fiber prepreg production for aerospace applications

Teijin Limited announced today that its carbon fiber subsidiary Renegade Materials Corporation, a leading U.S.-based supplier of highly heat-resistant thermoset prepregs, resins and adhesives for the aerospace industry, will expand its prepreg production by 2.5 times approximately. The increased capacity, which aligns with Renegade’s capacity expansion strategy at the Miamisburg, Ohio location, is the result of a USD 4 million investment made in December 2019 and the construction was started in March 2020. Operation of the new production lines will commence January 2022.

Renegade Materials' heat-resistant thermoset prepregs, resins and adhesives are well trusted by U.S. and European aircraft manufacturers and aircraft engine suppliers. The company was established in 1993 as a resin manufacturer and launched its thermoset prepreg business for aerospace applications under the Renegade brand in 2007.  Renegade holds expertise in the production of both high heat-resistant RTM resins and adhesives from low toxicity materials as well as in unique thermal-cycle resistant prepregs. 

The company’s proprietary heat-resistant thermoset prepregs are being utilized in the manufacture of next-generation aircraft. By boosting its prepreg capacity, the company is prioritizing the use of high-performance materials in the production of advanced aerospace solutions and industrial applications to meet diverse demands in the global market. 

Teijin is further strengthening the development of its carbon fiber product portfolio and aims to be a company that supports the society of the future by delivering innovative high-performance materials and solutions with real value.  

Renegade Materials will showcase its high heat-resistant thermoset prepreg at the Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX), the largest, most comprehensive composites and advanced materials event in North America, at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, from October 19 to 21.
