Manufacturers of thermoplastic pipes are under pressure to deliver economical, safe and efficient products. Pipe manufacturers improve long-term reliability and add considerable value to their thermoplastic pipes by integrating Twaron reinforcement. Twaron is 100% non-metallic, non-corrosive, lightweight and flexible, and allows manufacturers to radically and easily improve the long-term performance and safety of their thermoplastic pipes.

Twaron’s high modulus, high strength, high tenacity, low weight, and excellent corrosion resistance give it a significant advantage over other thermoplastic reinforcement materials, including glass and carbon fiber. Because of the chemical and mechanical properties of this para-aramid, Twaron-reinforced thermoplastic pipes can be used in a wide range of industrial areas, including the transportation of water, gas and oil. Twaron-reinforced pipes can also be designed to withstand a range of high operating pressures and temperatures (e.g., 90 bar, 1300 Psi, at 65°C or 150°F), depending on the manufacturer’s requirements. Because of this, end users can lower the risk of oil spillages, for example. Twaron reinforcement is the sustainable choice for thermoplastic pipes, not only because of the added durability and long-term performance, but also because waste aramid can be easily reclaimed and recycled.
