Toray Group products in a circular path

Next-Gen EV Mobility Thermal Management

Toray Resin (TREC ) and Toray Resin Mexico (TRMX) will showcase the latest developments in TORELINA™ PPS technology, used in various materials for thermal management and cooling applications within the demanding next-generation electric vehicle (EV) industry where lightweighting and performance improvement can dramatically extend EV automotive performance.

TORELINA™ PPS technology is an essential component in the evolution of the automotive sector towards more efficient, safer, and environmentally friendly electric vehicles. Its versatility and advanced capabilities make it a preferred choice for thermal management, emission reduction, and safety applications in the future automotive industry.

Toray Industries, Inc. will display 3D printed parts made by Toraymill™ PPS. Using a unique polymer design technology, this PPS powder was developed for Additive Manufacturing (3D printing) to provide a high performance plastic with electrical characteristics, high strength, rigidity, heat resistance, chemical resistance, low water absorption, flame retardance, etc. which are tailored for the needs of not only ICE but also next-generation (EV and FCV) vehicles, robotics, industrial equipment and aerospace etc. for functional prototype and end-use parts.


High-Performance Infrastructure

Toray Fluorofibers America (TFA) will present Matrix-Spun PTFE flock fibers as an ideal solution for infrastructure applications. Compounding them into thermoplastics and thermosetting resins provides superior low wear and low friction. Flock fibers can be mixed with wet-laid structures for a range of applications. A variety of different cut lengths and denier sizes also offer flexible solutions for a multitude of friction issues.

Green Energy Storage

Toray Composite Materials America (CMA) will feature a hydrogen tank manufactured with next-gen TORAYCA™ T1100 carbon fiber used to produce the lightest possible vessel with the ability to withstand the highest pressure for renewable energy storage solutions. TORAYCA™ carbon fiber is globally recognized for its outstanding performance, quality, and consistency in processing for high-performance cutting-edge applications ranging from energy, aerospace, sports, automotive, and transportation.


Sports and Recreation

Toray Advanced Composites USA (TACUS) will display a high-performance mountain bike produced with Toray Cetex® TC910 PA6 carbon fiber composite material, a complementing material to the recently announced Toray Cetex® TC915 PA+.  TC915 PA+ is a strengthened polyamide for high-performance applications such as sporting goods and energy (oil & gas, Hydrogen), automotive, Urban Air Mobility (UAM), and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).

Ultrafiltration and Reverse Osmosis Membrane Technology

Toray Membrane USA (TMUS) will display a state-of-the-art Toray Reverse Osmosis (RO) membrane for water treatment that removes dissolved solids from water. RO membranes are used worldwide in many applications including pharma, automobile, dairy, food and beverage processing, and ultrapure processes. Water purified by Reverse Osmosis membranes for paint production is also standard in the automotive industry, and TMUS can provide silicone-free solutions when requested.
