Beijing -- A new factory for aramid fibres has opened in China. A report from China Rubber said the unit also makes up to 500 tonnes annually of tyre cord.
The project is part of the 11th Five-year plan. In 2008 China declared its intention to establish local production and technology for PPTA (para-aramid) fibres, in order to reduce dependence on imports.
