Teijin Aramid all-black Twaron.

Teijin Aramid (Arnhem, The Netherlands) has started the production of the first all-black aramid fiber, Twaron Black, in Emmen, The Netherlands. Twaron, normally golden yellow in color due to the chemical process, now is black for the first time. At the request of customers in the sailing and sports industries, Teijin Aramid started to investigate other colors for Twaron. Twaron Black will be seen for the first time in the sails of the world’s largest ocean sailing race, the Volvo Ocean Race. For the threads to become completely black, they are not dyed afterwards, like cotton fibers. Teijin Aramid says he production process has been adjusted to inject the fiber with the black dye during the process. This makes it the first black aramid fiber with characteristics that are equivalent to the standard golden yellow fiber.
