Taparan® Para-aramid

Development Background

Para-aramid belongs to the aromatic polyamide family. The full name is poly (p-phenylene terephthalamide), abbreviated as PPTA or Aramid-II.

The raw materials of para-aramid are TPC and PPD.

Para-aramid is called one of the three high performance fibers in the world, with carbon fiber and high density high modulus polyethylene (HDPE) as the other two. It possesses outstanding properties of high strength, high modulus, high temperature resistance and flame resistance. It has advantages of relative low density, fatigue resistance, tear and shear resistance, dimension stability. It has irreplaceable position in areas like personal protection, aerospace, electrical communication, and etc.

As one of the key basic materials relating to the development of national economy, para-aramid has attracted many attentions in materials society. But due to the high difficulty of producing technology, only several countries like the U.S, Russia, South Korea and China can produce it. Until now the total capacity is 70,000 tons per year worldwide.

During the Eleventh Five-Year Plan, China has been made a substantial breakthrough in engineering technology of para-aramid. Yantai Spandex built a hundred-ton production line in 2008, which is the first one in China. It runs continuously with main properties reaching international advanced level. This laid a solid foundation for the kilo-ton industrialization project.

TAPARAN®Para aramid is widely used in the fields of automobile hose, optical fiber, friction and sealing and personal protection soon. Therefore Tayho has become professional and unique aramid supplier with full set of meta-aramid and para-aramid products as well as competitive market guarantee capability in China.
