Asahi Kasei announced that its Fibers & Textiles SBU will expand the production capacity of Leona nylon 66 filament in Nobeoka, Miyazaki, Japan.

The capacity will increase approximately 5,000 tons/year and the current capacity is approximately 33,000 tons /year. The start-up will be in the first half of fiscal year 2019.

With exceptional strength, heat resistance, durability, and light weight, Leona nylon 66 filament is widely used in industrial applications, notably airbags and tire cord for the automotive industry, satisfying rigorous quality requirements.

Asahi Kasei says its Leona nylon 66 filament is enjoying remarkable growth in its predominant application of airbags, as vehicle production in Asia increases and the airbag installation rate rises in line with heightened safety requirements. The capacity expansion will enable the company to meet increasing demand as the market continues to grow.

Ryujiro Yoshino, Senior General Manager of the Leona Filament Division, said, “With increased capacity for Leona nylon 66 filament, we will meet the strong demand growth which is being driven by greater vehicle production, stricter safety regulations, and the use of more airbags per vehicle. We will work to further enhance our supply configuration, considering subsequent capacity expansions, as we continue to expand the business.”
