Profile of Divisions

Division of Frontier Fibers

The Division of Frontier Fibers considers both resource conservation and public demands for safety and security to develop materials which optimize recyclability and energy utilization. The Division aims to establish fundamental multi-function, multi-capacity manufacturing technologies for high-strength fibers, high-performance fibers, and nano- and other frontier fibers.

  • 1. Cross-section of fibers with functional agent in the sheath part.
  • 2. Fabric woven with functional fiber.
  • 3. 3Dstructure of E-spun Nanofibers.
  • 4. Unique Nanofiber Production Systems.
