Teijin to Boost Production of Technora Para-aramid Fibre

29 March 2016

Teijin has announced that it will expand Technorapara-aramid fibre production by 10% through increasing capacity in its Matsuyama Factory, Japan, when construction begins this June at a cost of 1.5 billion JPY.

Teijin and the group’s core aramid-fibres business Teijin Aramid, will jointly expand the worldwide sales of Technora in response to increasing market demand worldwide.

Teijin’s Twaron, Technora para-aramid fibres are used worldwide for applications including reinforcement materials for automobile rubber parts and composites to civil engineering ropes and cables, and protective clothing. Technora is produced by Teijin Limited in Japan and Twaron is produced by Teijin Aramid in the Netherlands.

Technora was independently developed by Teijin and has been commercially available since 1987. It features high tensile strength and resistance to impact, fatigue, chemicals, moisture and heat. It takes advantage of these properties in order to meet the specific requirements of a range of applications such as reinforcement materials for transmission belt, hose and ground. Technorahas been produced by full-capacity operation, with its global market steadily increasing since 2014.
