Technora® fiber and Filament
Technora®para/meta aramid fiber
Technora® offers a balance of advantages between meta-aramids (i.e. Conex® and Aramet®) and para-aramids (i.e Paramyd®) by exhibiting a molecular structure which has both para and meta linkages. For safety/protective applications, Technora® has been widely utilized as to be blended with Carbex® to achieve superior FR properties versus other commercially available products. These blended products have been made available in knitted and woven forms.
Compared to meta-Aramids (i..e. Aramet®, Conex®and Nomex®) Technora’s major advantages include (1) greater tensile strength and abrasion resistance (2) lower shrinkage at high temps (3) lower moisture regain.
Compared to para-Aramids (e.g. Paramyd®, Twaron®, Kevlar®) Technora’s® major advantages include (1) greater chemical, elongation and abrasion properties (2) lower moisture regain.
