Twaron is produced from a para-aramid that Teijin Aramid makes itself in facilities in Delfzijl and Emmen, the Netherlands using raw materials sourced from the oil industry. As explains Dr. Ir. Bert Gebben, group head of Wet Spinning within the R&D facility at the company’s headquarters in Arnhem, the para-aramid is formed through the reaction between an amine group and a carboxylic acid halide group.
