« Oil sands production accounted for 28.8% of total Canadian gas demand in 2016 | Main | Sugar-derived levulinic esters and cyclic ether show superior anti-knock quality to Euro95 reference gasoline » Mitsubishi Rayon (MRC) (which is now consolidated into Mitsubishi Chemical, along with Mitsubishi Plastis and the former Mitsubishi Chemical) recently announced that its carbon fiber sheet molding compound (SMC) has been adopted for the rear hatch frame of the new Toyota Prius PHV. SMC is a form of thermoset chopped fiber composite; glass fiber reinforced SMC is already commonly in use in the automotive industry. SMC developed by MRC is a type of intermediate material for CFRPs and a sheet-shaped material in which carbon fibers cut into several-centimeter lengths are dispersed in resin. The SMC can be processed into components in a short period of time—roughly 2 to 5 minutes—by press molding. In contrast to prepreg intermediate materials (uncut carbon fiber fabric impregnated with resin), this SMC features high formability for molding complicated shaped parts. It also exhibits close-to-uniform mechanical properties. This allows engineers to readily use the carbon fiber material by utilizing existing parts design know-how and achieve lighter components with higher strength. Advantages of MRC’s SMC for the Prius PHV include a substantial reduction in the vehicle’s weight, the achievement of a great component performance, an excellent formability that enables production of complicatedly shaped components, and productivity necessary for manufacture of components for mass-produced vehicles. Lux Research called MRC’s contract win small, but important. Lux said that three key lessons can be gleaned from the announcement: Use case matters. The CF SMC is still substantially more expensive than aluminum or glass fiber SMC. On a pure fuel efficiency vs cost basis, its adoption not likely justified. However, the PHV model will benefit substantially more than the base model, due to the increase in full-electric range from lightweighting. SMC is much simpler to design with than continuous fiber composites. SMC has uniform properties—unlike continuous fiber composites—making it much more like metals for design engineers and much easier to adopt over all. Fast speed is not as necessary for initial adoption. The product takes two minutes to five minutes to mold. Most automakers have said that one-minute cycle times are necessary for mainstream adoption, but it’s clear from this announcement that niches exist where longer cycle times are acceptable, Lux observed. Bolstered by the Toyota win, MRC said it actively and extensively promote the use of its carbon fiber materials for automotive components. Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group’s APTSIS 20 Medium-Term Management Plan aims for achieving sales of ¥100 billion (US$900 million) from the carbon fiber and composite material business in 2020. Earlier this year, MRC acquired a US carbon fiber plant from SGL—SGL Carbon Fibers LLC, in Evanston, Wyoming—to expand its carbon fiber business in the North American market. MRC also acquired Seattle-based Gemini Composites LLC, a design, engineering and prototyping firm specialized in product development using forged composite technology.


According to Stratistics MRC, the global Steering Columns System market is estimated at $13.55 billion in 2015 and is poised to reach $16.65 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 2.98% from 2015 to 2022.

The largest genomic analysis of puberty timing in men and women conducted to date has identified 389 genetic signals associated with puberty timing, four times the number that were previously known. The study, published today in Nature Genetics and led by researchers from the Medical Research Council (MRC) Epidemiology Unit at the University of Cambridge and other scientists in the international ReproGen consortium, also found new genetic evidence linking earlier timing of puberty to higher risk of several cancers known to be sensitive to sex-hormones in later life, including breast, ovary and endometrial cancers in women, and prostate cancer in men. These influences remained after controlling for body weight, which is important as body weight itself influences both the timing of puberty and the risk of some cancers. Dr John Perry, Senior Investigator Scientist from the MRC Epidemiology Unit and senior author on the paper, says: "Previous studies suggested that the timing of puberty in childhood was associated with risks of disease decades later, but until now it was unclear if those were circumstantial observations, for example secondary to other factors such as body weight. "Our current study identifies direct causal links between earlier puberty timing itself and increased cancer risk. This link could possibly be explained by higher levels of sex hormones throughout life, but we need to do more work to understand the exact mechanisms involved. We aim to understand these disease links and thereby contribute to the prevention of diseases in later life." The timing of puberty varies widely between individuals but tends to run closely within families. Earlier puberty timing may have advantages for some adolescents, for example for boys who engage actively in sports, but it appears to have largely negative effects on later health, such as higher risks of heart disease and some cancers. By performing detailed assessments of genetic variants across the whole genome in 329,345 women, comprising data from 40 studies in the ReproGen consortium, UK Biobank, and consented 23andMe customers, this study identified 389 independent genetic signals for age at puberty in women. This observation was then confirmed in a further 39,543 women from the deCODE study, Iceland. Many of these genetic associations were also found to influence age at voice breaking, a comparable measure of puberty timing in men. These findings shed light on the mechanisms that regulate puberty timing. Dr Perry adds: "These newly identified genetic factors explain one quarter of the estimated heritability of puberty timing. Our findings highlight the remarkable biological complexity of puberty timing, with likely thousands of genetic factors, in combination with numerous environmental triggers, acting together to control the timing of this key transition from childhood to adult life." Dr Ken Ong, also from the MRC Epidemiology Unit and joint senior author on the paper, says: "One of the more remarkable findings concerns the role of certain types of genes called imprinted genes, which are only active in your body when inherited specifically from one parent but not the other. We identified rare variants in two genes, which both lower the age of puberty when inherited from your father, but have no effect when inherited from your mother. This is intriguing as it suggests that mothers and fathers might benefit differently from puberty occurring at earlier or later ages in their children." Felix R. Day, Deborah J. Thompson, Hannes Helgason et al. Genomic analyses identify hundreds of variants associated with age at menarche and support a role for puberty timing in cancer risk.
