are a family of nylons, which are contraction of aromatic and polyamide.
DuPont first introduced the proprietary aramids
containing spunlace technology to the market 31 years ago at its Sontara production facility in Old Hickory TN.
, cottons, PAN carbons, nylons and polyesters, treated and untreated, can be introduced to a wide array of simple and complex compounds to improve properties ranging from strength to wear resistance to dimensional stability, even noise suppression, often with the added benefit of reducing costs.
is a subsidiary of the Teijin Group and world leader in aramids
Furthermore, Teijin Aramids
focus on sustainability has led to the development of their Customer Benefit Model (CBM), which provides a complete overview of the environmental and financial impact of the belt, showing that environmental and financial practices can go together.
This agreement with MACRO Industries represents Teijin Aramids
goal to collaborate with partners and participate in a global ecosystem where people work with Twaron.
These are mostly composites with re-enforcing fibres made of aramids
(aromatic polyamides) embedded in a matrix made of another polymer.
"It offers higher cut resistance than bulky medium-weight aramids
, and far more comfort than thick heavy-weight aramids
and tougher engineered yarns that are traditionally combined with glass or steel fibres to increase their cut resistance." Dyneema Diamond complements and enhances the existing Dyneema Continuous Filament technology, he added.
The aromatic polyamides (aramids
) due to their superb properties and high performance are widely utilized for defense and aerospace applications.
Still, not all questions about aramids
have been answered.
Stephens says that at this stage, the more obvious benefits of carbon fibre over the aramids
appear to be in stretch resistance, with test results suggesting that the fibre would potentially last better in use because, unlike the aramids
, carbon is virtually impervious to break down with UV light.
Price improvement reflected higher local prices for aramids
, nonwovens and chemicals as well as raw material cost pass-through pricing in industrial chemicals.
