Teijin Ltd. announced the opening of a new Technology Development Center at its factory in Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, Japan.
The center will serve as a central base for developing high-performance materials solutions for the Teijin Group, integrating advanced fibers development functions previously handled by the Osaka Research Center. It has facilities for test production and evaluation of strong, lightweight structural materials, design and evaluation of smart wearables, and a burn evaluation system for protective clothing (to be transferred from Osaka Research Center in December).
Research at the center initially will focus on developing solutions for high-performance composite materials and expanding its scope of monitoring services.
