Our products are used worldwide in many different markets, including use in automotive, ballistic protection, marine, civil engineering, protective clothing, optical fibre cables, and oil and gas applications.

In a world of ever-increasing energy requirements and diminishing reserves of fossil fuels there’s a changing need for enabling technologies to make the most of known reserves and exploit previously uneconomical ones. For over two decades, Teijin Aramid has been committed to providing enabling solutions to the oil and gas industry.

Unique product properties

Combined with the availability on long lengths, reliable coupling, superior UV resistance and high durability, Twaron RTPs offer a state-of-the-art pipeline solution in applications for transport of oil, gas and water.

Deepwater development

Besides RTPs, Twaron and Technora are excellently suited to reinforce the broad range of deepwater equipment such as umbilicals, flexible flowlines and risers, seismic cables, deepflow, ropes, straps and slings.
