Asahi Kasei to expand capacity of Leona nylon 66 filament

The Asahi Kasei Corporation, a technology group that works in the three business areas of material, homes, and health care, has announced that Asahi Kasei’s Fibers & Textiles SBU will expand its production capacity for Leona nylon 66 filament in Nobeoka, Miyazaki, Japan. With about 34,000 employees across the world, the company serves around 100 countries.

With exceptional strength, heat resistance, durability, and light weight, Leona nylon 66 filament is widely used in industrial applications, notably airbags and tire cord for the automotive industry, satisfying rigorous quality requirements.

Leona nylon 66 filament is enjoying remarkable growth in its predominant application of airbags, as vehicle production in Asia increases and the airbag installation rate rises in line with heightened safety requirements. This capacity expansion will enable Asahi Kasei to meet increasing demand as the market continues to grow.

Ryujiro Yoshino, senior general manager of the Leona Filament Division said, “With increased capacity for Leona nylon 66 filament, we will meet the strong demand growth which is being driven by greater vehicle production, stricter safety regulations, and the use of more airbags per vehicle. We will work to further enhance our supply configuration, considering subsequent capacity expansions, as we continue to expand the business.
