Outline of Operations


Polyester fibers, the quintessential synthetic fiber product, currently account for approximately 77% of all synthetic fibers produced worldwide. Valued for its strength, excellent chemical resistance and ease of care, Tetoron ® is found in a broad range of applications. Tetoron® was produced for the first time in Japan by Teijin and Toray Industries, Inc., in 1958. Our Tetoron ® business has since expanded in line with global market growth to become a key pillar of our operations.

Recycling systems

The Teijin Group recognizes that addressing environmental issues is a key management task and is using its advanced polymer science technologies to conceive innovative recycling systems. Specifically, we have developed and commercialized the world's first technology for the chemical recycling of polyester and have applied this technology to the development of systems for converting used PET resin and polyester fiber products back into raw materials of comparable purity to those produced directly from petroleum. With this technology, we are creating fully closed recycling systems for used polyester textile products, including uniforms and curtains, and for PET bottles.

Technologies for environment-friendly products

MORPHOTEX ® , a nanotechnology-based structurally colored polyester fiber, continues to attract considerable attention for its outstanding potential. Developed by mimicking the mechanism that causes the colorless wings of the South American morpho butterfly to appear to take on color when they reflect light, MORPHOTEX® shows color without any dyes or pigments. MORPHOTEX ® is also environment-friendly because it requires neither the dyes or pigments, nor the water and energy, that would normally be used in the dyeing process.

Advanced recycling technologies

Teijin has applied its material recycling expertise to develop a revolutionary new technology for treating and cleaning soil polluted by heavy metals. In addition to chemically extracting and recovering heavy metal pollutants and cleaning the soil, this technology facilitates the replacement of cleaned soil and the recycling of recovered heavy metals.

Aramid fibers Carbon fibers Industrial-use polyester fibers Polyester monofilaments Artificial leather




Outline of Operations

Aramid fibers

Aramid fibers are high-performance industrial fibers that boast outstanding strength, dimensional stability and heat and chemical resistance. Aramid fibers are broadly classified as either para-aramid or meta-aramid fibers. The superb strength and impact-, compression- and fatigueresistance of para-aramid fibers make them particularly suitable for use in ballistics applications, automotive brake pads and other friction materials, as an alternative to asbestos, as well as in tire and optical fiber reinforcements. Our para-aramid fibers lineup comprises Technora®, an original product produced in Japan, and Twaron ®, produced in the Netherlands. Together these products account for approximately 50% of the global market for para-aramid fibers. Meta-aramid fibers are valued for their superb long-term heat and flame resistance, and are favored for such applications as filters and firefighters' uniforms. They are also used in a wide range of uniforms and other specialized apparel, reflecting increased security concern. industries as aircraft manufacturing. BESFIGHT ®, which is manufactured by Toho Tenax, has played a crucial role in achieving a lighter body for Airbus's new A380, the world's largest commercial aircraft-- with twin decks and a seating capacity of 555--which will enter service in 2006. In the area of environment-friendly products, BESFIGHT ® is seeing increasing use in wind generator blades. Applications are also expected to increase in the fuel cell and automotive sectors.

Industrial-use polyester fibers

This category centers on heavy-denier polyester fibers for industrial applications, notably tire cords, seatbelts, rubber reinforcements and other automotive products. Other products include polyester monofilaments, which are used in substrates for use in paper making, filters and industrial materials for printing and other applications. As well, we continue to conduct intensive R&D aimed at developing new materials and new technologies in the area of PEN fibers.

Carbon fibers

Boasting excellent strength, high tensile modulus and superior heat resistance, carbon fibers are well known as the principal material used in tennis racquet frames, golf club shafts and a wide range of other sports and leisure equipment. As well, industrial applications Wind generator blades made using are expanding sharply in such BESFIGHT ®

Artificial leather

Cordley ®, manufactured by Teijin Cordley, is used in sporting goods, notably shoes and balls, as well as in ordinary shoes, apparel, furniture, bags, automobile seats and miscellaneous household products. In response to rising demand for environment-friendly offerings, we developed LOELE ®II , an innovative, environment-friendly artificial leather manufactured without the use of organic solvents and using an integrated process that releases less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than other artificial leather. We expect LOELE ®II to be launched as a mainstay of this category.

Polycarbonate resin

Polycarbonate resin is the world's most commonly produced engineering plastic. Strong and lightweight, polycarbonate resin boasts an impact resistance more than 200 times that of glass and weighs only half as much. Other properties include excellent heat and weather resistance, transparency and thermal insulation. It is also easy to process. Accordingly, polycarbonate resin is suitable for a wide range of applications. Teijin Chemicals' lineup encompasses Panlite ®, the first polycarbonate resin produced commercially in Japan, which was launched in 1960. Panlite ® is also available in sheet and film form. Panlite® is also compounded with glass fiber, or with other resins, to produce a variety of materials with a number of added functions. These materials are used in the casings of mobile phones, notebook PCs and other information and communications devices, as well as audiovisual (AV) and OA equipment.

Unlimited potential

The Teijin Group's lineup features polycarbonate products for a broad range of applications. Examples include Panlite® sheet, a polycarbonate sheet used in LCD-TVs, and PURE-ACE®, a polycarbonate film for LCDs used in personal digital assistants.

A 70% global market share

Our polycarbonate resin is particularly valued for use in DVDs, CDs and other optical applications. Panlite® currently accounts for approximately 70% of the global market for polycarbonate resin for DVDs, an application for which demand is growing rapidly.

Recycling and reuse

The Teijin Group's plastics lineup also includes PET resin, used in PET bottles. In addition to promoting the development of environmentfriendly products, the Group developed the world's first system for chemically decomposing polyester products from used PET bottles and recycling them into raw materials of comparable purity to those derived from petroleum. Another key plastics product developed by the Teijin Group is PEN resin, a transparent resin that surpasses PET resin in terms of heat resistance, hygiene and gas barrier. PEN resin is attracting increasing attention for use as an alternative to glass in returnable beer bottles and school cafeteria dishware.
