This new offering should help shrink environmental footprints by lightening carbon-fiber reinforced plastic materials
Toray Industries has developed TORAYC T1200, which is the world’s highest strength carbon fiber. This new offering should help shrink environmental footprints by lightening carbon-fiber reinforced plastic materials. Its applications should range from sporting and leisure goods to aircraft.
Companies in various countries began manufacturing carbon fibers, increasing supplies of conventional high-strength offerings. Demand for high-strength carbon fibers has risen, necessitating a response from Toray. The company accordingly set about refining its a proprietary nanoscale structural control technology to design and achieve an internal structure with high toughness.
Applying this technology led Toray to create TORAYCA T1200, with a tensile strength of 8.0 gigapascals (or GPa, which is around 100 kilogram force per square millimeter). This is more than 10% higher than the figure of 7.0 for TORAYCA T1100.
Toray began selling carbon fibers in 1971. It has supplied TORAYCA for such applications as compressed natural gas and high-pressure hydrogen tanks, automobiles, aircraft, and sporting equipment. In 1986, the company developed TORAYCA T1000, which was then world’s highest strength carbon fiber, and has since remained a global leader in that respect. In recent years, Toray further expanded the potential of carbon fibers by commercializing TORAYCA T1100.
