Teijin to raise Twaron production capacity

Teijin Limited and Teijin Twaron BV have announced the 4th production capacity expansion in the last 6 years. This new expansion, called 'Nikko' ('Sunshine' in Japanese), will again increase production capacity by approximately 15% for the high performance fibre Twaron, in both plants in Emmen and Delfzijl.

The 3rd production expansion, NIJI, is completed as well as the feasibility study for further expansion, announced in February this year. Therefore, according to plans, Teijin Twaron is initiating Nikko, which again will increase monomer and polymer capacity at Delfzijl and Emmen. This extra capacity will gradually become available from the end of 2008.

These last years have continuously shown a market growth of approximately 10% for para-aramid fibres, mainly in automotive, ballistic and optical fibre cable applications.

The newly developed product Sulfron, a new rubber compound ingredient derived from Twaron, has also an enormous potential and is seen as a confirmation for further growth of Teijin Twaron's high performance fibres. This new developed rubber compound ingredient is a revolution in rubber compounds and it offers various solutions for the tire industry.

Besides other considerable benefits, rolling resistance of tires is improved by 20% which means 5% reduction in fuel consumption. This positions Sulfron as an undeniable sustainable ingredient for the tire and the mechanical rubber goods market.

Teijin Twaron is the only organisation offering a broad portfolio of aramid high performance fibres; Twaron, Technora, Sulfron and Teijinconex. This broad offer has enabled the organisation to build a dominant position in the market. To consolidate this position and ensure future growth, Teijin Twaron keeps investing in its production, people and organisation as a whole.
