Teijin at Nano Tech 2015: Exhibited Polyester Fiber, CNT Yarn & more for Wide Applications

Published on 2015-02-02. Author : SpecialChem

TOKYO, Japan -- Teijin Limited exhibited a wide range of nanotech materials and products incorporating advanced Teijin technologies during the International Nanotechnology Exhibition and Conference (Nano Tech 2015), one of the world’s largest nanotechnology shows, at the Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo, Japan from January 28 to 30.

Teijin’s booth presented nanotech materials and products for sustainable transportation, information and electronics, safety and protection, environment and energy, and healthcare, including:

NANOFRONT®: An ultra-fine polyester fiber with an unprecedented diameter of just 700 nanometers featuring superior fitting, slip resistance, heat and light shielding, and filtering properties. It is used for diverse applications, including clothing and industrial applications such as filters and heat-shielding sheets.

Carbon nanotube yarn: 100%-carbon nanotube continuous yarn offering high electrical and thermal conductivity similar to metal, and also the flexibility, robust handling and strength of a textile fiber. Envisioned uses include space, aerospace, healthcare, vehicles and smart garments. A high-end audio cable and a smart fabric were exhibited at the show.

NanoGram® Si paste: Printed electronics material containing 20nm-diameter silicon nanoparticles for photovoltaic cells capable of high conversion efficiency.

Nanotech-based decorative films: Structurally colored multilayer polyester films that utilize the interference of each multilayer’s optical path difference rather than dyes or pigments. Decorative films for automotive and other applications were exhibited.

Polylactic acid (PLA) electrospun sheet (under development): PLA nonwoven sheet that is expected to be used for scaffolds in regenerative medicine.

High-performance membranes (under development): High-precision porous thin polyethylene membrane and multi-layer membrane composites for micro filters, moisture permeable waterproof sheet and LIELSORT high-capacity battery separators, etc.

Carbon nanofiber (under development): Highly conductive carbon nanofiber with a diameter of 200-300 nanometers and an elliptical cross section consisting of well-developed graphite layers ordered in a single direction. Envisioned applications include batteries, thermal conducting materials and plastic-reinforcing materials, among others.
