About Technora®
Technora® is a very strong para-aramid fiber developed and produced exclusively by Teijin Limited. Strong and light: weight for weight, Technora® is 8 times stronger than steel and 3 times stronger than fiberglass, polyester or nylon yarns. Shows little loss of strength even during repeated abrasion, flexing and stretching. Low thermal shrinkage, i.e., excellent dimensional stability. Thermal decomposition threshold of 500ºC, so Technora® can be used at 200ºC for long periods. At 250ºC, it maintains more than half of its room-temperature tensile strength. Highly resistant to acids, alkalis and organic solvents; not vulnerable to damage caused by steam or sea water.
