SINGAPORE (CNI)--Japanese chemical major Teijin Ltd plans to expand markets for its para linked-aramid fibre, Technora, by increasing the number of product grades and introducing new applications, CNI learned Thursday.
A Tokyo source said current grades measure 20 denier. Plans are under way to increase grades to include 40-100 denier fibre.
The company may raise its production capacity of Technora to 1400 tonne/year from the current 800 tonne/year within the next two years to meet anticipated new demand.
Domestic demand for para linked-aramid fibre is about 4000 tonne/year, the source added.
