How Twaron® acts as a sustainability multiplier
Twaron® is a high-performance aramid, meaning it is light, strong, and durable. By using Twaron® manufacturers extend the lifespan of their applications and minimize resource and energy requirements in the use phase. For example, the use phase of an application’s lifecycle is often the dominant phase in terms of its environmental impact. In the lifecycle of an airplane the biggest source of emissions is not the energy consumed during its production, but the fuel burnt while in the air. Lighter cargo can reduce the amount of energy required during the use phase of the plane. This is true for many aramid-based applications.

Extended product lifetime
Less weight and increased durability deliver significant reductions in maintenance and end-user costs.
Start using the Customer Benefit Model todayIf you want to increase the environmental and financial value of your products, then start by using our TÜV-certified Customer Benefit Model (CBM). The CBM helps you calculate the added value of using our aramids in place of other solutions. It uses a collaborative modeling process that factors in your specific needs and any regional variables.
Why the Customer benefit Model?
“We wanted to do things differently to other eco-footprint models and to go beyond simply analyzing the costs and environmental footprint per kilogram of Twaron®. “ Read the interview with Marjan Kamer, Corporate Specialist Eco Efficiency Services Teijin Aramid
