Teijin Aramid has developed a new type of yarn – black-colored, high-modulus Twaron. This unique yarn is the first high-modulus black para-aramid yarn on the market. It has been dope dyed – which ensures the color reaches right to the core of each filament, giving it a deep black color.
Its great looks are just one of many reasons to choose black Twaron. It is ideal for reinforcing sails and other sporting goods. Also in hybrid fabric constructions Twaron Black can add stiffness, strength, dimensional stability and great aesthetics. Key benefits of using Twaron Black:
- Strength (weight-to-weight, it’s 5 times stronger than steel)
- Excellent performance/weight ratio
- High modulus and tensile strength of the composite structure
- Damage tolerance
- Cut resistance
- Chemical stability
- Heat stability
Our Twaron black high-modulus filament yarn has a 0.8% spin finish that is optimized for composite applications and is compatible with most common resin types, such as epoxy, vinylester and polyester. We have developed two different linear densities: 1210 dtex and 1610 dtex. For heat protective applications it is also available in standard modulus and 3360 dtex. Both types are dope-dyed and therefore offering a good color fastness. Assembled yarns can be delivered on request, as well as twisted or tangled black Twaron yarn.
We provide technical support, samples, testing and evaluation services. Please contact our specialists for more information. They will be happy to help you select the Twaron black yarn type that precisely meets your requirements.
