The Sereebo carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) of Teijin Limited has been selected for use in Panasonic Corporation’s newly launched digital 4K video cameras, the HC-X2000 and HC-X1500.


A version of Sereebo developed for injection molding, which uses Teijin’s polycarbonate resin Panlite as the matrix, has been adopted for the handle unit and top cover of both cameras.


Sereebo, claimed as the world's first CFRTP for mass production, significantly reduces molding time to enhance production efficiency.


The HC-X2000, which is about 40% smaller and some 15% lighter than conventional models, combines excellent mobility with a robust 4 hours and 35 minutes of continuous shooting.


Teijin's Sereebo CFRTP is adopted for the HC-X2000 digital video camera. 


While camera chassis and bodies are typically made with plastics reinforced with chopped carbon fibers for strength and reduced weight, short fibers cannot fully realize the strength and other unique features of longer carbon fibers.


Sereebo incorporates Teijin’s original resin-composition formulating technology for added strength, weight reduction and flame retardancye. Also, its surfaces are extra smooth and Teijin’s superior resin-processing technologies eliminate carbon-fiber bosses (protrusions).


Teijin is accelerating its development of mass-production applications for Sereebo, including in precision equipment and consumer electronics that require both strength and reduced weight.
