Twaron ® is the leading para-aramid fiber produced by Teijin and is a high-performance man-made fiber. The paracrystalline structure in which the molecular chains are oriented along the fiber axis enables Twaron ® to combine a variety of properties and to be one of the leading man-made fibers on the market. It is used in roughly the same applications as Kevlar ® and Technora ®.
Twaron ® is further used in fiber optical cables due to its inherent protective characteristics. Click here to see how our high-performance fibers contribute to this application.
Twaron ® combines a uniqe set of properties including high strength, high dimensional stability, and resistance against heat, cut, and chemicals. This makes Twaron ® the ideal material for a new generation of mooring ropes. Click hereto find out how our fibers are used in mooring ropes.
Twaron ® is one of our fibers which is known for its potential with regard to protective clothing. See here how and why our fibers are appreciated across different industries for their protective properties.
