Engineering plastics must meet increasingly stringent requirements. The trend is toward more compact designs and smaller components that are subject to greater stresses, such as higher temperatures and operating speeds. And at every step of the way, these requirements need to be met without compromising on durability.
Minimum maintenance, maximum endurance
Many industries – particularly those in the automotive and electrical & electronic sectors – require composite components that are lighter, more compact, and more resistant to wear. Adding Twaron or Technora (either in the form of para-aramid powder or short-cut fibers) to engineering plastics will significantly enhance the endurance of your products and therefore help to meet the specifications.
Not only does Twaron greatly reduce the wear of plastics components, it also doesn’t affect the coefficient of friction nor causes abrasion of the counter materials. Twaron’s dosability has been optimized, making it relatively simple to enhance the performance of your plastic products.
Twaron is available as short-cut fiber in a variety of lengths, ranging from 0.25mm to 6mm, and as powder.
The key benefits of using Twaron:
- High wear resistance, low abrasiveness
- Easy to dose
- Ability to precisely engineer the level of wear resistance
- Reduction of vibration and sound dampening
