Teijin Limited announced today that it has been awarded a contract to supply its Tenax carbon fibre material to Bombardier Aerostructures and Engineering Services for another seven years until 2025.

Teijin sees aircraft business as one of the growth areas in its medium-term management plan for 2017-2019 and is intensively accelerating its development of mid to downstream applications, such as cost-effective carbon fibres with higher-tenacity and higher-tensile modulus, intermediate materials including Tenax TPUD, Tenax TPCL carbon fibre thermoplastic consolidated laminates, thermoset prepregs and non-crimp fabrics. Going forward, Teijin intends to further strengthen its carbon fibre and its intermediate material business as a leading solution provider for aircraft applications, targeting annual sales in this field in excess of US$900 million by around 2030.

Teijin was awarded a contract by Bombardier to supply Tenax for major primary and secondary composite structures in 2010 and Tenax carbon fibre has been used for primary structure applications including wing, centre wing box structures and empennage applications.
