Teijin Aramid USA (Conyers, GA, US) will feature its aramid fiber reinforcements under the Twaron and Technora brand for use in automotive, aerospace, ballistic protection, civil engineering, composites, heat and cut protective clothing and optical fiber cables. Twaron and Technora aramid fibers, says Teijin, offer high strength and stiffness in combination with low density. In powder form they reportedly can reduce wear and improve durability in engineering plastics, even when operating under high speeds and temperatures. Twaron aramid short-cut fibers now offer improved dosing and processing behaviour.
