Technora®: High Strength & Excellent Abrasion Resistance

Key Features of Technora®

  • High tenacity & modulus
  • Excellent abrasion & fatigue resistance
  • Excellent chemical & steam resistance
  • Very low creep
  • High thermal stability 
  • Lower moisture regain than other para-aramids
  • Available natural and black

History

Technora® was first made commercially available in 1987.

 

Composition

Technora® is an aromatic copolyamide that has a highly oriented molecular structure, consisting of both para and meta linkages. Technora is produced by condensation polymerization of different copolymers, yielding a high modulus, low creep, and thermally stable fiber.
