Teijin’s booth will present nanotech materials and products for sustainable transportation, information and electronics, safety and protection, environment and energy, and healthcare.

Nanofront

Nanofront, an ultra-fine polyester fibre with a diameter of just 700 nanometers, features slip-resistance, heat shielding, wiping and filtering properties. It is used for diverse applications, including sportswear, cosmetics and industrial applications such as filters and heat-shielding sheets.

Carbon nanotube yarn

Carbon nanotube yarn (CNTy) is 100%-CNT continuous yarn that is said to offer high electrical and thermal conductivity, easy handling and flexibility. Uses including space, aerospace, medical and wearable devices are envisioned. A motor using CNTy as its coil, developed by Finnish Lappeenranta University of Technology, will be exhibited for the first time in Japan.

NanoGram Si

NanoGram Si paste is a printed electronics materialcontaining 20nm-diameter silicon nanoparticles for photovoltaic cells capable of high conversion efficiency.

Teijin Tetoron

Teijin Tetoron multilayer film is a structurally coloured multilayer polyester film that utilizes the interference of each multilayer’s optical path difference rather than dyes or pigments. Decorative films for automotive and other applications will be exhibited.

High-performance membranes

High-performance membranes, including a high-precision porous thinpolyethylene membraneand multilayer membrane composites for micro filters, are moisture-permeable waterproof sheets, the company reports.

Carbon Alloy Catalyst

Carbon Alloy Catalyst (CAC) (under development) is platinum free catalyst made from polyacrylonitrile (precursor of carbon fibre) in combination with iron species, which is said to be less expensive and more readily available than platinum, enabling production for reduced cost and in higher volumes. Fuel cells in which the cathode consists of the CAC without the platinum catalyst can generate exceptionally high electric power, according to the manufacturer.

Carbon nanofibre

Carbon nanofibre (under development) is a highly conductive carbon nanofibre with an elliptical cross section consisting of well-developed graphite layers ordered in a single direction. Envisioned applications include additives for lithium ion secondary batteries (LIBs), thermal conducting materials and plastic-reinforcing materials, among others.

Teijin Group

Teijin is a technology-driven group offering advanced solutions in the areas of sustainable transportation, information and electronics, safety and protection, environment and energy, and healthcare.

Its main fields of operation are high-performance fibres, such as aramid, carbon fibre and composites, healthcare, films, resin and plastic processing, polyester fibres, products converting and IT. The group has some 150 companies and around 16,000 employees spread out over 20 countries worldwide.
