Teijin Used Aramid and Carbon Fibers for Museum Facade Panels

September 09, 2019

The Teijin Group announced that the 185 composite panels for the façade and canopy of a new wing of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (Amsterdam, Netherlands) has been constructed using Twaron para-aramid fiber and Tenax carbon fiber of Teijin. The museum is the world’s first and largest-scale composite building measuring 100 meters by 25 meters.

The new structure of the museum has been offered the name “bathtub” for its distinctive shape. Twaron para-aramid fiber and Tenax carbon fiber has been combined with vinyl ester resin in composite laminates, forming the outer skins of composite sandwich construction with a core of PIR foam. These two components are such that contract with the increase in temperature, which is quite opposite to resins, thus ensuring the minimal thermal expansion of the panels while offering structural stability.
