Latest innovations in performance fibers and composites for aviation industry

@Teijin Carbon

The Farnborough International Airshow will make its return on 18-22 July 2022.

For decades, the Farnborough International Airshow has been the global platform for the aerospace and defence industry. This year, its role will carry even greater significance with FIA2022 serving as the first major event to reconnect colleagues from around the world, enabling business growth and recovery.

“A huge amount will have changed in the three years since we last brought industry together; however, FIA2022 will be a strategic opportunity to witness the leaps in development that have taken place as well as showcasing innovation to a truly global audience, face-to-face.” – The Farnborough International Airshow

It’s been four long years, but Teijin Aramid and Teijin Carbon are back at the Farnborough International Airshow. During July 18-22, the company is partnering with FIA2022 to present latest innovations in performance fibers and composites.

Teijin Aramid and Teijin Carbon both specialize in the fiber materials that sustain the top performance and safety of aerospace applications as well as across a wide range of applications.

The flagship fibers

Aramids are strong, heat-resistant polyamide fibers, which are no stranger to keeping people safe in the most extreme situations. Their properties also makes them perfect for the aerospace industry, where strength and fire safety are paramount.

The para-aramids Twaron and Technora cover almost any imaginable usecase and can be applied in many formats. From fire-resistant textiles and ballistic panels to air cargo container panels, these versatile fibers work hard to earn their place at the core of modern, safe aircraft.

Carbon fiber is more of a household name than aramids, although both are essential. Tenax carbon fiber become the industry-standard material for a wide variety of components due to their light weight and strength, allowing more lift and increased safety and comfort.

Innovation through collaboration

“We’ve been refining and perfecting both our aramid and carbon fibers over decades, and we constantly update our products to fit our customers’ evolving needs. That’s why they come in so many different forms.” – Teijin Aramid and Teijin Carbon.

So what’s new?

The two experts haven’t wasted any time since the companies were last at FIA. Some of the new advances in tech include:

Aramid honeycomb – the extra-light and super-strong way to make panels for floors, walls, and other components.

Fire-resistant panels – lightweight, world-class fire resistance where it’s needed most.

Ballistic panels – high-strength, impact-resistant protective components for cabin armor.

Latest Tenax thermoplastics.

Tenax Thermosets.

Tenax Dry Reinforcements.

2022 Farnborough International Airshow;

Farnborough International Airshow will resume its position as the pinnacle aerospace and aviation event in the industry as it returns 18-22 July 2022.

Building upon the success of the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow, which saw deals worth $192 billion made, the show is propelling itself to new heights. The 2022 airshow will be unveiling a new revolutionary global initiative – the inaugural Aerospace Global Forum. A ground-breaking dimension to Farnborough, one of the biggest airshows in the world, the platform will provide global leaders with the opportunity to gather, discuss and interrogate major issues impacting the world through an aerospace lense and drive positive change.

In addition, the event will also see the expansion of its Smart Networking opportunities, evolution of turnkey chalets and a new Space Zone, utilising the two brand-new 22,000 sqft sound stages built on the grounds of Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre.

Steering the conversation on six core themes pertinent to the aerospace, aviation and defence industries, Farnborough International Airshow will focus on the future of the industry, sustainability, aerospace and defence thought leadership, space, future workforce and air travel.

Showcasing an exhibition of industry-leading pioneers and programme of thought leadership, the airshow will be the first truly international opportunity to witness the leaps in development that have taken place as well as showcasing innovation to a truly global audience, face-to-face.

Aerospace Global Forum sets out to pioneer change across global industries for the first time

Launching July 2022, the Aerospace Global Forum (AGF) is a revolutionary global platform that aims to champion change and drive immediate action, accelerating transition to the new, net-zero economy.

Developed by Farnborough International, AGF will bring global leaders together, across all industries, sectors, and geographies, together for the very first time to drive conversation and interrogate issues to actively change the world for the better through an aerospace lens.

Taking place in tandem with the world-famous Farnborough International Airshow, 18-22 July 2022, AGF will set the agenda for industry in the years ahead, discussing the new digital workforce and future leaders of the aerospace and defence industry, and preparing organisations for the new skills needed in an AI-fuelled world. Topics include transitioning to Net Zero, sustainability across the defence sector, smart manufacturing and hyper-scaling within the industry to accelerate change.

The future-focused forum will provide pioneers of change with an immersive platform to connect, engage and learn through a diverse five-day programme of inspiring thought leaders and impactful discussions. Leaders from the finance and energy sectors, governments, climate consultancies, start-ups, OEMs and their supply chains will gather for to share, debate and energise collaboration.

Speaking of the opening instalment of AGF, Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International, said: “The 2022 Aerospace Global Forum will be the catalyst to create transformation and accelerate tangible change together through bringing the aerospace world together and tackling the challenges we are facing as an industry and the world.

“Climate change is the largest challenge to affect the world and we must react to it as an industry with the support of governments, academics, regulators and innovators. A diverse platform is needed to host these future-altering discussions, leading us to harness our pioneering spirit to develop and curate the Aerospace Global Forum. I urge industry leaders to join us in driving change and mapping out the next steps to achieve a net zero economy.”

Kevin Craven, CEO of ADS, added: “The Aerospace Global Forum provides a real opportunity for the leaders of industry to come together with academics, government and innovators to consider the existential challenges that the aviation industry are facing both now and in the future. We need to understand what action can be taken within the sector to overcome these challenges and use the AGF to drive real action and change to ensure the aviation industry can adapt for the future.”

AGF isn’t just a five-day platform. The thought leadership programme has been designed to drive change past July 2022 and create a springboard for a suite of spin-off forums and conferences in aviation communities around the world, throughout the year. Working with like-minded accredited partners, the programme has been developed to produce actionable outcomes and strategies that will hold leading industry organisations to be held accountable in progress moving forward.
