2. Products to be exhibited

- Highly heat-resistant polyimide film XENOMAX®
This polyimide film with excellent heat resistance is one of the most dimensionally stable in the world. Thanks to its thinness, lightness and dimensional stability equivalent to glass, an increasing number of manufacturers use this product as a substrate for organic EL displays and electronic paper. At the booth, Toyobo will introduce the world’s first digital music score device with a two-screen electronic paper that uses XENOMAX® as a violinist performs live

- Stretchable conductive film COCOMITM
This stretchable conductive film for electrode and wiring materials is used in wearable devices. It is thin and highly stretchable, providing a natural feel to the wearer. Toyobo’s booth will display clothing that uses COCOMITM, which is capable of making real-time measurements of physiological information.

- World’s strongest PBO fiber with excellent flame resistance Zylon®
The world’s first Polybenzobisoxazole (PBO) fiber produced and sold by Toyobo. Among existing organic fibers, Zylon® has world-leading levels of strength, tensile modulus and heat and flame resistance. At the booth, Toyobo personnel will introduce a wide range of uses possible thanks to the product’s excellent properties.
