A350 XWB aircraft is world’s first aircraft using CFRTP for primary structure parts.
A350 XWB aircraft is world’s first aircraft using CFRTP for primary structure parts.

Teijin Limited announced that the A350 XWB aircraft, Airbus’s new-generation extra-wide-body midsize jetliner incorporating Teijin’s Tenax TPCL carbon fiber thermoplastic consolidated laminate, was delivered to Japan Airlines (JAL) and arrived at Haneda Airport in Tokyo on June 14.

As a top supplier to Airbus for over 30 years, Teijin has provided the aircraft maker with Tenax carbon fiber for a variety of aircraft families. In May 2014, Tenax TPCL was registered in Airbus’s qualified products list for the world’s first use of carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) in primary structure parts for Airbus’s aircraft.

Tenax TPCL, which utilizes carbon fiber composites made with high impact, heat and chemical resistant PEEK (polyetheretherketone) thermoplastic resin, are supplied by Teijin Carbon Europe GmbH in Germany.

Teijin is increasingly emphasizing strong, lightweight, high-performance materials that offer environmentally sensitive solutions for improved fuel efficiency. Teijin is focusing its carbon fiber business on the aircraft field, where it is rapidly developing midstream and downstream applications.

Going forward, Teijin intends to further strengthen its carbon fiber and its intermediate material business as a leading solution provider for aircraft applications.
