Teijin Group to Exhibit at Protective Apparel Trade Fairs Worldwide

Teijin Limited announced today that it will exhibit at a number of protective apparel trade fairs worldwide over the next month to reach new markets for its high-performance fibers.

The Teijin Group will present Teijinconex® and Teijinconex® neo meta-aramid fibers and Twaron® and Technora® para-aramid fibers for protective clothing and reinforcement applications.

High-performance composite materials that offer new value are one of the four pillars of Teijin’s Transformation and Growth Strategies in its medium-term business plan. By leveraging its high-performance materials, Teijin aims to provide highly advanced solutions for increasingly diversified demands in the global market.

“We have supported the global market for protective apparel over decades with our high-performance materials, such as Teijinconex® meta-aramid, Twaron® and Technora® para-aramid, Pyromex® flame-resistant fiber, Endumax® high-performance polyethylene, and since recently with Teijinconex® neo, a new highly heat-resistant and dyeable meta-aramid fiber,” said Masaya Endo, Teijin Group executive officer and general manager of Teijin’s advanced fibers and composites business group.

Today, strong demands exist in developed markets for protective clothing made with aramid fibers offering comfort, maneuverability and excellent dyeability, as well as high protection. In Asia and other emerging countries, rising standards for protective apparel are boosting demand for high-performance fibers in these markets as well.
Teijin expects to take a leading position in the global market for protective apparel, targeting sales of JPY 20 billion (USD 160 million) by 2020.
