Chromaticity / DYED

Technora ® is a para-aramid fiber made from copolymers and produced from poly-para phenylene tere-phthalimide (PPTA).

It was independently developed by Teijin and has been commercially available since 1987. This high-performance fiber has a range of excellent properties, including high tensile strength, good fatigue resistance, long-term dimensional stability and good resistance to corrosion, heat, chemicals and saltwater.


Very High Strength

Technora ® is 8 times as strong as steel and 3 times as strong as polyester or nylon on a weight-for-weight basis, what enables weight reduction of products in which this fiber is used.


Tenacity and Fatigue Resistance

Technora ® combines high tenacity with superior fatigue resistance.


Dimensional Stability

Technora ® demonstrates outstanding dimensional stability due to its low thermal shrinkage.


Modulus, Creep and Stress Relaxation

Technora ®’s highly oriented molecular structure leads to a high modulus, low creep and low-stress relaxation.


Temperature Resistance

Technora ® is resistant to heat of up to 200°C for a long time and decomposes at a temperature of 500°C.


Resistance to Chemicals and Other

Its high resistance to acids, bases, organic solvents, sea water and steam does not only distinguish Technora® from other high-performance fibers but enables its use in the harshest environments.
