Innovative solutions for composites
Kuraray at JEC Composites Europe 2014
Kuraray, a global specialty chemicals company based in Tokyo, Japan, will be exhibiting at JEC Europe 2014 on March 11 – 13, 2014 in Porte de Versailles in Paris. JEC Europe is Europe's largest trade show for composites. Kuraray can be found in Hall 7.2, Booth B34.
As a leading supplier of innovative high-performance materials, Kuraray will be showcasing a number of new products. The PEI (Polyetherimide) fiber is a new flame retardant fiber which has several unique properties, such as low smoke density and low toxicity. PA9T fiber is a new high performance polyamide fiber, which has high heat resistance, high chemical and hydrolysis resistance and low-water absorption. We are expecting that these fibers and their applications can be expanded into a wide variety fields, and especially provide good solutions in thermoplastic composite markets.
A further highlight at the exhibition will be VECTRAN. Thanks to its high strength and low weight, this high-performance polyarylate fibre can be used in many sectors from aerospace to sport products. Kuraray’s latest innovation is
MOWITAL LP BF, ultra-thin polyvinyl butyral films that bond easily with a wide range of materials, opening up completely new possibilities.
