Teijin’s new fabric boasts premium black colour

Teijin Frontier, the Teijin group’s fibre-product converting company, has developed a new fabric, boasting a premium black colour, that is expected to meet demands for lightweight, easy-care formal wear.

“Up to now, it was difficult to reduce a fabric’s weight while retaining its deep black colour for use as formal wear,” the manufacture explains. “The reason was that the fabric had to be shrunk to prevent light reflection and increase its density to achieve a deep black colour, making it unsuitable for formal black wear by its weight.”

Teijin fabric premium black colour

Teijin Frontier’s solution is designed to optimise the fibre, the fabric structure and the post-dyeing processing technology in lightweight, premium black fabric. To realise a premium black colour, the company developed a new polyester combined-filament yarn by incorporating a new polymer technology and a new yarn-processing technology with orientation control.

Light reflection was suppressed by lowering the refractive index and using thin-film fabrication processing to make the yarn bulky, so low transparency is achieved without shrinkage of the fabric.

In the development stage, Teijin Frontier produced a deep black colour by greatly shrinking the yarn, but this raised the fibre’s density and increased its contact area, which led to whitening due to friction. Later, however, the thread structure was redesigned for less shrinkage and finer yarn threads. Reduced shrinkage and greater bulkiness decreased whitening surface.

Teijin Frontier is now exploring marketing opportunities and sample sales for formal black wear. Annual sales are expected to reach JPY 200 million (US$ 1.76 million) by the fiscal year ending in March 2020.

Teijin is a technology-driven group offering advanced solutions in the areas of environmental value; safety, security and disaster mitigation; and demographic change and increased health consciousness.

Its main fields of operation are high-performance fibres such as aramid, carbon fibres and composites, healthcare, films, resin and plastic processing, polyester fibres, products converting and IT. The group has some 170 companies and around 19,000 employees spread out over 20 countries worldwide.

ConocoPhillips Sets Price Ceiling For New Projects – Conoco believes that in addition to operational efficiencies that have been improving in the shale patch over the last few years, shale is more resilient to oil price swings than other segments of the industry – ConocoPhillips Price Ceiling Projects

ConocoPhillips Sets Price Ceiling For New Projects

ConocoPhillips Price Ceiling Projects

ConocoPhillips will only invest in new projects that can be profitable at an oil price of below US$50 a barrel, CEO Ryan Lance told the FT, adding that the company will continue to focus increasingly on U.S. shale despite skepticism about its growth potential among analysts.

Conoco believes that in addition to operational efficiencies that have been improving in the shale patch over the last few years, shale is more resilient to oil price swings than other segments of the industry. That’s despite the inability of a lot of shale boomers to cover their drilling costs and expand without taking on more debt.

Conoco, which recently reported it had returned to black in the third quarter of the year, posting a profit that beat analyst estimates, will now focus more on shareholder returns than on growth. The company has already started buying back shares it issued during the crash to keep going and will keep the buyback program in place until 2020. The program will cost it US$7.5 billion.

Investment-wise, the US$50 per-barrel ceiling is not even the most ambitious profitability level for new projects. Said Lance, “You don’t even get through the door unless you are below $50 cost of supply, and you don’t really get to the table in the capital allocation fight unless you are $40 a barrel or below.”

What’s more, this cost of supply includes everything from drilling rights acquisition costs to corporate overheads, the latter often excluded by U.S. E&Ps when they report on their supply costs, the FT notes.

Earlier this month Lance said Conoco planned to increase its capital spending allocation for the next three years to US$5.5 billion a year, or a billion dollars more than the capital spending program for 2017, which was cut twice from its initial size.

Poland’s Grupa Azoty ZAK confident on plasticizers growth as Asia urbanises

LONDON (ICIS)–Grupa Azoty ZAK is confident about the growth and longevity of plasticizer dioctyl terephthalate (DOTP) as end markets are set to continue growing, especially in Asia, according to an executive at the Polish producer this week.

Poland Grupa Azoty ZAK plasticizers Asia According to Maciej Budner, marketing manager at Grupa Azoty ZAK, the company has become the largest manufacturer of DOTP in Europe and the second largest for the feedstock 2-ethyl hexanol (2-EH).

The executive was speaking at the OXO Conference in Sopot, Poland, on Thursday.

Market drivers for plasticizers are driven by polyvinyl chloride (PVC) applications (90%) and there are a lot of diverse end-uses, with wire and cable taking up 23%, followed by film and sheet and flooring.

Global flexible PVC consumption accounted for 11.7m tonnes in 2016, with Asia taking the dominant position at 6.8m tonnes, followed by Europe with 1.6m tonnes.

However, Budner went on to say the market in Europe is stagnant as it is a very mature market, so the growth will be driven mostly by Asia, especially China.

Nevertheless, there were still expectations that over the next few years global growth will continue, although he noted there is competition in Europe and the US in particular, where PVC is being challenged by polyolefins and plastics in certain applications such as food packaging and films.

World global capacity of plasticizers is around 13m tonnes and China is still a net importer, with various plants mothballed and running at reduced rates, estimated around 50-60%.

On demand, global estimates in 2015 stood at 9m tonnes, with prediction that this will grow by a third to 12m tonnes by 2024.

Europe accounted for around 1.2m tonnes in 2015 and there is a small growth of around 100,000 tonnes predicted by 2024, with the main growth driven by China.

Europe has more than 30 producers, but there are eight majors responsible for approximately 80% of the volume.

In the long-term perspective, China will need to follow the path of legislation.

In Europe, declines have been seen in certain plasticizers “due to negative image caused by regulatory issues,” said Budner, referring to the EU’s chemical regulation REACH.

Due to the changing landscape, there is a high degree of diversity in plasticizers produced and used in processing.

More specialised, eco-friendly products, not restricted or without regulatory concerns, are sought and provided by suppliers.

The European market was described at the OXO conference as being innovative in terms of plasticizers and finished products.

Following news on 15 November that the company will increase its DOTP capacity by 15,000 tonnes in 2018, Budner added: “DOTP is the most developing plasticizer and hence why we decided to increase capacity, as it is a good alternative.”

Budner concluded highlighting:

  • Plasticizers are driven by performance of flexible PVC
  • Flexible PVC applications are versatile
  • Flexible PVC and plasticizers are highly regulated, especially in the EU and the US
  • Highest growth rates both of PVC and plasticizer markets will be generated by Asia, particularly China, while the mature markets of the EU and the US are changing structurally
  • There is a diversity of plasticizer types used in processing

Plasticizers are used in plastics or other materials to import viscosity, flexibility, softness, or other properties to the finished product.

Sweden and Birlas to explore smart textiles

Sweden Birlas explore smart textiles The Swedish government is looking for a joint project with the Aditya Birla Group in the area of smart textiles. It plans to strengthen bilateral trade with India and explore smart textile solutions through cooperation with the Aditya Birla Group, Swedish company Domsjö and the two governments, as well as the EU, The Hindu Business Line reports.

The trade between the two countries is somewhat skewed with India largely importing raw material from Sweden and exporting value-added products across the globe, said Sven-Erik Bucht, Minister for Rural Affairs from the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation Sweden, in an interaction with the media last week.

“We are keen to explore the possibility of a joint project in smart textiles using viscose staple fibre, cellulosic fibre and pulp as an alternative to cotton and hence the Birla group is a natural fit with its easily blendable cellulosic fibre. Together, we need a broader approach to address the challenge of climate change,” he said.

Calling for a collective approach, the minister confirmed that Sweden would like to share their experience and ideas about developing an ecosystem based on a circular bio-economy that will build a better environment.

Aditya Birla Group is a pioneer and one of the world’s largest manufacturers of viscose staple fibre. It is also the fourth-largest producer of insulators and the fifth-largest producer of acrylic fibre globally, according to the manufacturer. In India, the company is a top branded apparel and lifestyle player and the second-largest player in viscose filament yarn.

Ranked as 19th trading partner, Sweden exports to India in the first half of this year was up at 5,375 million Sweden Krona against 4,275 million Sweden Krona in the same period last year. Indian exports to Sweden in the first six months of this year was up at 3,178 million Sweden Krona against 3,026 million Sweden Krona logged in the same period last year.

Asked whether the Swedish government would attract some investment to produce value-added products from Indian companies, the visiting minister said the government is interested only in facilitating the trade by throwing open the opportunities and it is for the corporates to decide on their investments.
