First industrial-scale production of Twaron® using recycled material

Years of research and trials have resulted in a production run of Twaron® using recycled feedstock. The high-modulus filament yarn produced with recycled content has the same exceptional strength and durability as our original renowned Twaron® fibers. With the successful completion of trials on an industrial scale we’ve taken a step closer towards commercialization of circular Twaron®.

This is a milestone in our sustainability journey – a first for developing technology and a big step towards our goal of using an ever-increasing percentage of recycled content in the production of Twaron® yarn. We’ve been mechanically recycling end-of-life para-aramid products for decades. Now, our physical recycling technology will make circular aramids possible. Contact for more information. 

Key properties of Twaron®

Twaron® is our flagship product because of its unique combination of mechanical properties: 

  • High chemical resistance 
  • Exceptional strength and durability 
  • Light weight 
  • Excellent dimensional and thermal stability 
  • Superior abrasion resistance 


“The success of this is due to the knowledge, experience and cooperation with our customers and value chain partners, over many years."
