Toray Creates High Tensile Modulus Carbon Fiber and Thermoplastic Pellets

May 25 2020

Toray Industries, Inc. has created a high tensile modulus carbon fiber and thermoplastic pellets that are ideal for injection molding employing that fiber. The pellets will enable the efficient production of complex, rigid parts that are also light, thereby lowering environmental impact. These advances could greatly enhance cost performance.

Toray will push ahead with research and development to commercialize the fiber and pellets within the next three years.

Toray markets the TORAYCA T series of high-strength carbon fibers for pressure vessel, automotive, and other industrial applications, as well as for aerospace.

TORAYCA thermoplastic pellets incorporating the newly developed carbon fibers maintain longer fibers than conventional high tensile modulus offerings after molding processes. Using these pellets to make complex parts through injection molding processes would significantly enhance productivity and contribute much to lightening parts.

Toray looks to cultivate diverse applications for its advanced pellets, including for parts in lightweight next-generation automobiles and in industry in general.
