High-performance materials – the answer to lightweight mobility
As the automotive industry accelerates towards electrification and autonomous vehicles, our high-performance aramids offer lighter weight, durable and sustainable solutions for the next generation of electric vehicles.
Para-aramids in tires provide strength without weight. This allows you to manufacture lighter weight tires without compromising performance.
Aramid pulp elevates the performance of brake systems, reducing braking harshness, and providing you with an opportunity to enhance driver comfort and safety.
Aramid provides exceptional strength, heat and chemical resistance, and long-term stability. That’s how we enable you to make durable automotive components.
Realizing a circular economy
As the automotive and tire industries navigate the shift to electric vehicles (EVs), our shared goals are clear: net zero emissions and full material circularity by 2050. EVs play a crucial role in this journey, and so do components made from our aramids, which decreases use-phase carbon footprint and increase battery range in EVs.
● Lower weight with the same performance
● Less fuel use and less CO2 emissions per kilometer
Electric vehicles, driverless cars and other innovative technologies demand fresh thinking for sustainable mobility. We need lighter, stronger, more durable vehicles. This is where our aramids play a key role.
High-performance Twaron® para aramid pulp elevates the performance of brake systems by reducing noise, vibration, harshness (NVH) and reducing brake dust emissions, thus providing you with an opportunity to enhance driver comfort and safety.
● Reduced NVH ● Less brake dust emissions compared to metallic solutions ● Easy processability ● Good wear performance
Our aramids Twaron®, Technora® and Teijinconex® have outstanding reinforcement properties with exceptional resistance to thermal, dynamic and chemical damage. Aramid-reinforced hoses are stronger and last longer, making them especially suitable for maintenance-free electric vehicles (EVs).
● Heat resistant up to 250℃ (Teijinconex) ● High chemical resistance (fuel, cooling liquids, and more) ● Decreased leaking and tearing ● Retains durability and shape under high pressure and temperature
The all-round high performer. Suitable for manufacturers of products that need to be stronger, lighter, and more resistant to chemicals.
The premium para-aramid. It’s eight times as strong as steel, with great heat and chemical resistance, ideal for industrial and reinforcement applications.
High-performance protection. This meta-aramid offers excellent resistance to heat, flame and chemicals, making it ideal for use in the manufacture of protective textiles and other industrial applications.
