Withstanding Pressure with Torayca® Carbon Fibers

Strong and lightweight, our Torayca® Carbon Fibers improve the performance of your high-pressure tanks. Select from our wide range of fibers, the most suitable product for your fixed or portable applications for use in:

  • The automotive industry;
  • Maritime transport;
  • The aerospace industry;
  • Fire safety;
  • Energy storage.

Compared to all-metal tanks, our Torayca® Carbon Fibers offer unmatched performance for your composite pressure vessels:

  • Weight reduction;
  • Resistance to pressure;
  • Resistance to corrosion;
  • Excellent fatigue strength;
  • Reliability;
  • Longer life cycle and durability
  • Improved safety.

Our Flagship Products for Your High-Pressure Tanks

Our carbon fibers are particularly suitable for manufacturing Type 3 or Type 4 high-pressure tanks.


At the heart of the Torayca® range, the T700S is the most renowned fiber in the composite industry and remains a benchmark for carbon pressure tanks. Our T700S production capacity has grown in conjunction with the expansion of this market notably with the rising demand for compressed natural gas tanks (CNG).

Thanks to its high strength and unrivalled stability, the T700S offers the best value for money in the Torayca® range.


The newest addition to the range, the T720S, with its superior mechanical properties to the T700S, enables even lighter tanks to be produced, while maintaining a sufficiently competitive resistance-to-price ratio for industrial markets. Developed to meet the Automotive industry’s requirements, the T720S is becoming increasingly important in other mass-sensitive industrial markets;


The flagship of the Torayca® range, the T1100S represents a true technological leap and contributes to the success of your most demanding applications. The T1100S is exceptionally durable and is specially designed for high-performance applications, such as space programs.

Torayca® Carbon Fibers: Providing New Mobility Solutions

Society is today investing in cleaner technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and our economic dependence on fossil fuels.

High-pressure vessels offer a solution for storing alternative energy sources such as hydrogen. Toray Carbon Fibers Europe is actively supporting car and LGV/HGV manufacturers to develop hydrogen-powered vehicles.
