Toray Industries launches the world’s highest strength carbon fibreToray Industries has launched TorayCA T1200, which it claims is the world’s highest strength carbon fibre. TorayCA T1200 has been developed in response to a growing demand for high-strength carbon fibres with lightening protection, with Toray refining its proprietary nanoscale structural control technology to design and achieve an internal structure with greater strength. It is said to have a tensile strength of 8.0 gigapascals (or GPa, which is around a 100 kilogram force per square millimetre). At this level, it is more than 10% higher than the 7.0 GPa achieved by TorayCA T1100, the company’s current highest tensile strength carbon fibre.
