Twaron Approved to Bear Oeko-Tex label

21 January 2005

Teijin Twaron, manufacturer of the para-aramid fibre Twaron has been given the approval to bear the Oeko-Tex label according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 for their staple fibre and texturized filament yarn.

The label guarantees customers that there are no harmful substances present within the tested types of Twaron fibre and yarn which are mainly used for heat and cut protective applications.

Christoph Hahn, Sales and Marketing Manager of the division Heat and Cut Protection is pleased with the approval: ""This worldwide known label provides our customers -and their customers- with an all-round security that our fibres and yarns are safe to use, and contain no harmful substances.""

The Oeko-Tex system consistently prevents the use of substances which are harmful to health, controls numerous chemicals which may be detrimental to health, and also includes precautionary test parameters designed to protect good health. Testing for harmful substances under Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is the responsibility of independent, predominantly European test and research institutes, which, with their foreign branches, cover all of the world's main regions for textile production. More than 5000 companies worldwide now work in accordance with the criteria of the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. That makes the Oeko-Tex Standard the most widely-used textile quality seal in the world.
