Teijin Aramid, a leading manufacturer of premium aramids, announced its participation at Tire Technology Expo, a prestigious European exhibition and conference for the tire industry. At booth C522, Teijin Aramid will show how its high-performance aramid Twaron can add value to the fast-changing tire industry. Specifically, Twaron is used by leading tire manufacturers to improve performance, reinforcement, protection, efficiency and durability.
Twaron has become a proven basic material in the fast-moving tire industry. Leading tire manufacturers rely on Teijin Aramid’s first-class para-aramid, Twaron. Its unique strength, heat-resistance and low-weight properties enable a lighter, stronger, more sustainable tire. The result is a more durable, more fuel and CO2 efficient, less polluting tire that can cope with the high speeds and/or weight requirements of innovative vehicle designers.
Twaron can be applied in many tire environments for the private, commercial and industrial market. Even if the demands of vehicles can be quite different, Twaron can improve various kinds of tires – ranging from tires for passenger cars, motorcycles and bikes, to airplanes and racing cars. Twaron also adds value to the transportation and logistics industries and to off-the-road (OTR) vehicles.
