Arnhem, the Netherlands - As of today, Teijin Twaron has changed its name to Teijin Aramid. This change of name affects all locations worldwide, from production and head office in the Netherlands to all sales offices in the various continents.
The company said it now has around 50 percent of the global share of aramid products, generated through four different brand names, including the Twaron name, but also Technora, Sulfron and Teijinconex brands. When Teijin bought the company in 2000, it was selling all its products under the Twaron brand, but that has changed and the new name better reflects the comapny's activities.
Based on a firm belief in the future of the aramid market, the new name Teijin Aramid reflects accurately the present focus of the company and will allow fully expansion and further development of the product range, said the company in a press release
Twaron is the flagship para-aramid product of Teijin Aramid and its name will remain unchanged. Twaron is used in amny applications including hose reinforcement, tyre cord and other applications including bulet-proof vests.
