Toray Industries, a global leader in innovative technologies and advanced high-performance materials, is set to captivate the aerospace industry at the highly anticipated 54th International Paris Air Show. With a strong commitment to sustainability and a focus on revolutionizing the field of composites, Toray will unveil groundbreaking advancements that promise to reshape the future of aviation.

At the heart of Toray’s showcase lies their carbon fiber and thermoplastic composites, which have emerged as indispensable materials in driving the widespread adoption of composites within the aerospace sector. Toray’s rich legacy of innovation has played a pivotal role in shaping the industry, with their cutting-edge technologies spearheading significant advancements.

Toray’s participation in the Paris Air Show seeks to foster continued collaboration with customers and industry partners, facilitating a dialogue that explores the latest composite material technologies. This exchange aims to address the ever-evolving demands of the aerospace industry and push the boundaries of what is possible. Key focal points will include discussions on emerging technologies that power the development of next-generation, clean, and zero-emission aircraft.

With their TORAYCA carbon fiber, thermoset materials, and thermoplastic composites, Toray has enabled the widespread use of composites in commercial and general aviation. By partnering closely with valued customers, Toray continues to pave the way for groundbreaking programs that will shape the industry’s future.

Embracing the paradigm of zero-emissions air mobility, Toray’s TORAYCA carbon fiber, Toray thermoset, and Cetex thermoplastic composites have emerged as the material of choice for eVTOL (electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing) programs currently under development. These materials offer optimal strength, toughness, and efficient processing capabilities, as well as the necessary databases required for certification. Companies can thus meet stringent performance targets and adhere to certification schedules, marking a significant leap toward a greener aviation industry.

Beyond eVTOL applications, Toray’s diverse product portfolio encompasses tailored solutions for primary and secondary aerostructures, rotorcraft, radomes, antenna systems, large payload fairings, landing leg assemblies, and more. The company’s relentless pursuit of excellence ensures that the aerospace industry can rely on Toray’s cutting-edge materials to meet the most demanding requirements of modern aircraft design and construction.

In line with their commitment to sustainability, Toray recently announced a major upgrade to its Alabama facility in the United States. This upgrade will double the production capacity of the high-performance TORAYCA T1100 carbon fiber, a critical component in various US Department of Defense weapon systems, including missiles and munitions, rotor systems, and primary aerostructures. By investing in advanced material technologies, Toray continues to exemplify their dedication to providing sustainable solutions.

Tim Kirk, vice president of marketing at Toray Industries, emphasizes the company’s unwavering commitment to sustainability, stating, “Sustainability is a core value that drives everything we do. It is now with a ‘Big S,’ a table stake. Our customers expect nothing less from their supply chains, and we’re proud to lead the way with sustainability.”

As Toray Industries takes center stage at the Paris Air Show, attendees eagerly anticipate witnessing the unveiling of innovative composite technologies that promise to redefine the future of aviation. With their unwavering commitment to sustainability and track record of groundbreaking advancements, Toray is poised to inspire and shape the aerospace industry for years to come.
