Toho Tenax Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan), the core company of the Teijin Group's carbon fiber business, announced today that its European division, Toho Tenax Europe GmbH, has been awarded a contract to supply carbon fiber material for major primary and secondary composite structures on Bombardier’s new CSeries aircraft program. Toho Tenax will supply a variety of carbon fiber types for both dry textile and prepreg use on the program. Toho Tenax expects the award to generate revenues of approximately €130 million over the next 10 years.

The CSeries aircraft sets a new benchmark in the 100- to 149-seat class, combining advanced materials, and leading-edge technology to meet commercial airline needs from 2013 onwards.

Toho Tenax says Bombardier Aerospace has chosen Toho Tenax’s advanced carbon fiber materials to support this aircraft program because the latest Tenax carbon fiber materials meet the aircraft’s advanced design requirements and support Bombardier’s newly developed high-tech manufacturing processes.
