Arnhem, The Netherlands, September 28, 2018 – Teijin Aramid, leading manufacturer of premium aramids, today announced its participation at Expoprotection, the French exhibition for risk prevention and management. In hall 1, booth J113, Teijin Aramid shows solutions for heat and flame resistant Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) based on its aramid fibers Teijinconex, Twaron and Technora.
The demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is growing. Protection against heat, open flame, metal splash or electric arc resistance and cut are major hazards at working environments. Garment manufacturers appreciate the additional value gained by using aramid fibers for their protective work wear solutions. The ideal combination of safety and wearing comfort are important drivers of the Personal Protective Equipment industry. Therefore Teijinconex and dyeable Teijinconex neo meta-aramid, Twaron and Technora para-aramid find application in work wear garments for e.g. police officers, fire fighters, racing drivers, and industrial workers.
Teijin Aramid’s fibers can provide work wear garments with superior protection capacities, like thermal protection and flame resistance, resistance to tears and abrasion. There is no compromise on comfort, as Teijin’s aramids offer a lighter weight, more flexibility, and increased breathability. Furthermore garment manufacturers can reach higher performance standards, if their work wear is powered by Teijin Aramid products.
