Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Groupâ€™s fibre-product converting firm all set to open a research and development (R&D) center Teijin Frontier Thai Innovation Laboratory (TFTIL) for fibres and polyester fibres . It will be located in the Thailand Science Park, a technology hub that the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) will open in January 2018.
TFTIL will mainly research polymers as raw materials for polyester and other fibres and related manufacturing and processing technologies, enabling Teijin Frontier to establish a comprehensive production framework for polyester fibres, from polymers R&D to manufacture and processing, all in Thailand.
TFTIL also will collaborate with Teijinâ€™s polymerisation and fibreâ€™s R&D facility in Matsuyama, Japan and Teijin Product Development China Co., Ltd. in Nantong, China as three strategic R&D hubs in Asia. In addition, TFTIL will enable Teijin Frontier to easily collaborate with Thai governmental R&D bodies based in NSTDA to develop high-performance, high-quality, and cost-competitive products.
