Teijin to participate in the Virtual SAMPE Europe 2020 Conference in Amsterdam

Teijin Carbon Europe, the Teijin Group’s core carbon-fibres business and Teijin Aramid, the Group’s core aramid business will participate in the SAMPE Europe 2020 Conference in Amsterdam on September 30, 2020, as one of the main sponsors for the event.

The SAMPE Europe is one of the largest conferences related to composite materials and technologies. This year, the conference will be held virtually and registration is available via https://www.sampe-europe.org/sign-up/se-conference-20-amsterdam.

Teijin Carbon Europe and Teijin Aramid will introduce their Tenax® carbon fibers and Twaron® and Technora® para-aramid fibers composite materials for civil engineering. Aiming to be a company that supports the society of the future by contributing to more sustainable and robust infrastructure, both companies are strengthening their composites businesses for civil engineering applications including architecture, ground and bridge reinforcements.

Furthermore, both companies try to push the boundaries of architecture, by creating unique values with combining Tenax® and Twaron®. The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam situated in the center of the city is famous for its façade and canopy of the new wing building known affectionately as the “bathtub”. Measuring 100 metres by 25 metres, it is the world’s first and largest-scale composite building using Twaron® and Tenax®, forming a striking contrast to the original neo-renaissance building of the museum while appearing to float freely in the air. Teijin has been sponsoring the museum as one of the many cultural initiatives based on its corporate the company’s philosophy to grow and evolve in harmony with society.

Teijin is a Japanese enterprise with some core group companies operating in Europe and its regional headquarters located in Amsterdam and is sponsoring the conference to emphasize the strong bonds between Teijin and Europe as well as to further raise its profile and continue expanding its market for a diverse array of applications.
