YUHO Co., Ltd. was founded as a spinning company in 1892, and as such has rich traditions and a history going back over one century.
While maintaining our proud traditions, we have continued to evolve to meet the needs of new eras.
As a member of the TOYOBO Group, YUHO Co., Ltd. has used fiber processing technology expertise accumulated over many years as a foundation for developing our Non-woven Fabric, Filter and Plastic Molding businesses, which make a significant positive contribution to various advanced industrial sectors including environmental technology, automotive manufacturing, semiconductors, the energy sector, and the medical sector.
Using our expertise in non-woven fiber technology, we have developed carbon fiber non-woven fabric for carbon composite materials.
In generally, strong, lightweight carbon composite materials have been attracting a great deal of interest across a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive manufacturing, sporting goods, etc. Currently, the mainstream type of carbon composite material is thermoset composites. Although very strong, these suffer from various problems; for example, their high cost and poor workability often make them unsuitable for commercial applications.
Carbon fiber non-woven fabric that developed by us are combined carbon fiber with thermoplastic fiber. Since these materials have thermoplastic properties, they have superior workability, and press processing can be implemented in a short period of time, creating high potential for utilization in a wide range of industrial applications, including automotive manufacturing. We are also using our injection molding technology to develop hybrid molding products, with the aim of developing a wide range of industrial applications including EMI shielding components.
