TWARON® PUNCTURE RESISTANT-FIBER
- Super strong synthetic fiber
- Paired with CarbonX® to strengthen Torch Wear Welding Blankets
- Inherently flame resistant
Twaron fiber is a para-aramid material used in cut — and puncture — resistant products. It is lightweight, with high tensile strength and flex resistance. It has excellent durability and abrasion resistance.
When combined with other flame-retardant fabrics, Twaron is often used in military uniforms. Its inherent flame resistance when used in outer garments can give soldiers extra time to escape harm. Firefighting gear is often made from Twaron as well, as it adds protection and thermal insulation.
