Teijin has announced that it will participate in nano tech 2014, the largest International Nanotechnology Exhibition and Conference, which will take place at Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo, Japan, from January 29-31 January.

Teijin received a Grand Award at nano tech 2013 for its display of high-potential technologies and their wide-ranging applications in life sciences, energy efficiency, air purification, water filtration, energy and apparel.

Diverse applications

This year, Teijin will exhibit another wide range of impressive nanotechnologies, including Nanofront,  an ultra-fine long fibre with a diameter of just 700 nanometres for diverse applications including clothing, energy-saving sliding paper-doors, masks, cosmetics and other daily necessities.

The presentation will also include aramid nanofibre, a highly heat-resistant nonwoven sheet based on Teijinconex.

Carbon nanotube fibre is 100%-carbon long-filament nanotube combining high thermal and electrical conductivity similar to a metal with the flexibility, ruggedness and strength of a textile fibre, made by stacking and orienting the nanotubes along the fibre axis, followed by wet spinning.

Cost effective

High-performance polyethylene membrane for applications such as micro filters, and multi-layer membrane with wet composite coating for applications such as LIELSORT high-capacity battery separator will also be featured at the show.

Carbon nanofibre is a highly conductive carbon nanofibre with the  world’s-first elliptical cross-section consisting of well-developed graphite layers ordered in a single direction, with envisioned uses in lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles, as well as capacitors, electrode additives, plastic additives, fuel-cell gas-diffusion layers and plastic-reinforcing materials, the company reports.

Silicon ink and paste are advanced materials that are expected to be used in printable electronics (semiconductors) to significantly cut the costs of solar cells and displays.

Teijin Group

Teijin is a technology-driven global 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 fibres and composites, healthcare, films, resin and plastic processing, polyester fibres, products converting and IT. The group has some 150 companies spread out over 20 countries worldwide
