Capacity increase for Teijin’s Technora aramid fibre

Technora takes advantage of superior properties in order to meet the specific requirements of a range of applications such as reinforcement materials for transmission belts and hoses for industrial and automotive applications. Teijin’s Aramid Business has announced the completion of a new production line at its Technora production facility in Matsuyama, Japan. As of now, extra Technora capacity is available for Teijin Aramid’s customers globally.

Technora aramid fibre features high tensile strength and resistance to impact, fatigue, chemicals, moisture and heat. The Technora product celebrates its 30-year anniversary this year after the official introduction in 1987.

“With the expansion of our Technora capacity we are able to meet the growing market demand for this unique high-performance product. We are working on very interesting developments in offshore such as cables for lifting applications. The product has proven itself for already 30 years now and is used in many different applications and markets,” said Gert Frederiks, CEO & President of Teijin Aramid BV.

Technora was independently developed by Teijin in Japan and has been available for customers globally since 1987. Technora features high tensile strength and resistance to impact, fatigue, chemicals, moisture and heat. It takes advantage of these superior properties in order to meet the specific requirements of a range of applications such as reinforcement materials for transmission belts and hoses for industrial and automotive applications and the oil and gas industry.

“The demand for Technora is continuously growing and has been produced by full-capacity operation, with its global market steadily increasing since 2014,” the company reports.

Teijin Aramid is constantly investing in its technology. In the past years, 5% of the annual revenue has been invested into R&D activities. Recently, the company also announced it is expanding its aramid production capacity for its Twaron super fibre. It will invest in new spinning technology at the Twaron facility in Emmen, the Netherlands, starting up in the first quarter of 2019.
