Materializing ambitions

Industry value

Confronting danger with confidence

Teijin Aramid has provided para- and meta-aramid materials for protective wear for over 50 years. Our mission is twofold: enhance the performance of safety gear and reduce its environmental impact. Through continuous innovation, we address industry challenges, focusing on both product efficiency and sustainability.  


Aramid-based PPE increases the durability, colorfastness, and lifespan of protective wear while providing superior protection against heat, flame, cuts and chemical hazards.


We work with leading PPE manufacturers to create protective clothing that retains its properties, withstanding repeated laundering and tough environmental wear and tear.


We advocate for circularity, carbon neutrality, and product performance in protective apparel, developing solutions and fostering partnerships to reduce both pre- and post-consumer waste.


Leading in sustainable PPE

Protecting life goes beyond just personal protective equipment. Our ambition is to protect those in danger while also protecting our environment from PPE waste going to landfills.

Teijin Aramid works closely with our partners to create a circular value chain. Our actions include:



Life-cycle assessment 

We collaborate to reclaim end-of-life garments and partner with organizations that recycle aramid fibers. We work with partners to optimize recycling technologies, reduce energy and aim for carbon neutrality through the reuse of aramids. We evaluate financial and environmental impacts from production to end-of-life, offering insights for sustainable, cost-effective operations.
