Discover our applications
Find out more about the multiple possibilities how our aramid fibers Twaron® and Technora® and our Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) Endumax® contribute to solutions for the maritime industry:
- lightweight mooring lines
To keep meeting the increasing demands of today’s industries, manufacturers of ropes and cables need to offer lighter, stronger and more durable products. By leveraging the high-performance properties of Twaron(R), Technora(R), and Endumax(R), manufacturers can make their ropes and cables last longer, lift heavier weights, and reach greater depths – making these materials ideal for the offshore, leisure and mining industries.
- hulls and sails
Twaron in hulls provides structural integrety while dampening noise and vibrations. The strength, stiffness and dimensional stability of Twaron or Endumax reinforced laminated sails help to make it possible for racing yachts to compete at the highest levels.
- hard and soft ballistic protection
Twaron and Endumax are the material of choice to make laminates that provide effective protection against a wide range of ballistic hazards, including bullets, grenades and even certain mines. Using Twaron and Endumax in armoring can reduce weight by between 30% and 60% compared to steel. By integrating Twaron into bulletproof vests, manufacturers can confidently and easily offer enhanced user comfort, and protection against all kinds of bullets and fragments, as well as against stabbing with sharp and pointed objects.
