Why TORAY Materials?

We continually invest in product development for the medical industry, staying on the leading edge of product development. The benefits of our materials include:

X-Ray Transparency

Our thermoset and thermoplastic carbon prepregs are specifically engineered to allow x-ray transparency while maintaining the inherent light weight and strength of composite materials.

Excellent Dampening and Shock Attenuation

Our thermoplastic and thermoset composites maintain their stiffness and rigidity while providing exceptional damping.

Cosmetic Finish

Our thermoplastic and thermoset materials for the medical market are designed to provide a high-quality, long-lasting surface finish.

Suitable for Steam Sterilization

Our composite materials are designed to withstand a lifetime of steam sterilization cycles.

Technical Support

Toray is an expert in the optimal design of CFRP, an anisotropic material. Toray makes full use of FEM (finite element method) structural analysis technology based on its extensive experience to propose a structural design using optimal materials selected to suit customer specifications, contributing to reducing both development time and costs.
