Toho Tenax Europe GmbH (Wuppertal, Germany) talked about the impending launch of a Tenax carbon fiber filament yarn with a new tailored sizing for thermoplastic and high-temperature applications. The commercialization of Tenax-E HTS45 P12 (12K, 800tex) and Tenax-E IMS65 P12 (24K, 830tex) is planned for 2014. Both new fiber types will be produced at the company’s production site in nearby Oberbruch and will be globally available. Both yarns are compatible with PEEK, PPS, PEI and other high-temperature thermoplastics as well as low-temperature polyamide based systems (PPA, PA12, PA6, etc.). The P12 sizing also allows low viscosity and in-situ reacting thermoplastics to be combined with Tenax fiber. Both fibers can be processed as commingled yarn, woven fabrics, multiaxial fabrics and 3-D fabrics, and are suitable for pultrusion and prepreg processes.
