Technora® is the highest performing para-aramid fiber on the market today.  Technically an aromatic co-polyamide, Technora® boasts enhanced flex fatigue, thermal properties, and abrasion resistance, making it the ideal choice for the most demanding applications.

Unlike other para-aramid fibers, Technora® fiber has inherently better abrasion resistance and better resistance to various chemicals.  Technora® fibers still degrade with prolonged exposure to UV light and have the same tendency to absorb atmospheric moisture like other para-aramids, although only to approximately 2%.  Kevlar® and Alkex® do have slightly better heat-resistance in comparison to Technora®, but all of these fibers would do well in high-temperature applications.

Technora® Para-Aramid Physical Properties

Technora® offers a multitude of great properties that make them an excellent choice for various applications. Their exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and high break strength provides high tensile strength and modulus, making them ideal for applications requiring robust and durable materials. Para-aramid fibers like Technora® are great solution for applications where the fiber will be under constant load or a high cycle count, taking advantage of low elongation and creep properties.

Technora® Para-Aramid Resistance Guide

Technora® exhibits excellent resistance to high temperatures, maintaining it's mechanical properties even at elevated temperatures.  Technora® maintains 90% of its heat resistance at continued exposure to 200°C.  This heat resistance makes them suitable for applications in thermal insulation and protective clothing. Additionally, Technora® demonstrate even higher chemical resistance than other para-aramids, enabling them to withstand higher exposure to acids, alkalis, and many organic solvents without significant degradation. 

This fiber will degrade with prolonged UV light exposure. These fibers will brown and weaken over time.  T240B has better UV resistance than the other types, but not recommended for prolonged UV exposure.  Please keep this fiber stored away in a dark room and in the UV protective bag the fiber was shipped in.

Technora® is better than other para-aramids, but will absorb atmospheric moisture up to 2% in weight. This fiber should be stored in a cool, dry room with low humidity. A desiccant bag was included with this fiber to prevent regain during transit and short-term storage at your facility.

Acid: Prolonged exposure to concentrated strong acids will cause degradation
Alkali: Degrades with prolonged exposure to Sodium Hypochlorite and other concentrated bases
Organic Solvent: Moderate degradation in Carbon Tetrachloride and Ethylene Glycol

Continuous Operating Temperature Range (°C): -200 to 170
Short Term Exposure (°C): 420
Degradation Temperature (°C): 500
