Twaron® is most often used to improve the performance of tires for electric vehicles and other automotives. But that’s not all.
Manufacturers of bicycle and aircraft tires are also taking advantage of the special qualities of our material to deliver higher performance. Bicycle tires with Twaron®, for example, can be made foldable, lightweight and with better puncture resistance. Equally, aircraft tires are more resistant to Foreign Object Damage (FOD) at a much lower tire weight, making air travel safer and reducing CO2 emissions.
Sidewall reinforcement with Vectran ® offers protection against cuts and abrasion. The Vectran ® breaker wards off flats but is also supple for less rolling resistance and greater comfort than two layers of Nylon puncture resistant barriers.
