Teijin Aramid is a subsidiary of the Teijin Group and world leader in aramids. Its aramid products Twaron®, Sulfron®, Teijinconex®, Technora® and its ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) Endumax® are renowned for their strength, sustainability, safety, heat resistance and low weight and are used in different applications and markets including automotive, ballistic protection, marine, civil engineering, protective clothing, ropes, fiber optic cables and oil & gas.
Teijin Aramid has more than two decades of experience in developing innovative aramid materials that strengthen and improve products for use in the maritime industry. In particular, mooring lines (for both static and semi-static applications) that integrate Teijin Aramid’s materials Twaron® and Technora® offer improved performance standards and longer lifetimes.
Twaron® and Technora® have unique physical properties, including high tenacity, high strength and high-tensile modulus. Weight for weight, Twaron® is five times stronger than steel, while Technora® is even stronger. Both materials have a high creep resistance and are perfectly suited for reinforcing mooring lines, enabling the maritime industry to use stronger mooring lines without increasing the weight. The lower weight and easier handling of aramid mooring lines compared to traditional steel lines can improve efficiency on board ships or in harbors.
