Toray to Highlight Next-Generation Composite Technologies at Paris Air Show

TOKYO, Japan, June 13, 2019 - Toray Industries will highlight the latest advances in aerospace materials technology at the upcoming Paris Air Show – the world’s largest aerospace industry exhibition. At the show, Toray will further define performance advancements in TORAYCA® T1100 Carbon Fiber. Toray’s T1100 has established a new class of carbon fiber (Intermediate Modulus +) by offering significant improvements in both tensile and modulus strengths vs traditional intermediate modulus fibers. Additionally, Toray will promote its extended capabilities which now include the market leading Cetex® thermoplastic composite materials, following their acquisition of TenCate Advanced Composites, since renamed to Toray Advanced Composites, in July of 2018. This is Toray Advanced Composites’ first joint event since joining the Toray Group. Toray is exhibiting at Chalet A-126. “The Paris Air Show enables us to engage with our customers and understand the changing trajectory of the industry,” says Tim Kirk, Vice President of Aerospace Sales for Toray Composite Materials America. “It provides a great opportunity to showcase our value-add – both now and for the future,” says Kirk.
