Located in Wuppertal, Germany, the Application Competence Center (ACC) is a state-of-the-art Application &Development facility. By using the research laboratories and testing facilities here, our experts work closely with customers to develop new materials and products, as well as creating solutions for the application areas of ballistics, heat and cut protection, and friction.
In our Delfzijl plant we produce the raw material for our Twaron yarn. The principal materials produced here are the monomers PPD and TDC. They are combined in a closed process, and react to form our unique aramid polymer. In a separate installation, the solvents are removed so that they can be reused. Sustainability is key, both for our people’s health and safety and the environment. After the polymer has been dried, it is packed and transported to our Emmen plant, where it is spun into Twaron yarn.
Emmen is home to the world’s largest aramid factory! Here we produce our Twaron® yarn in around-the-clock shifts. We have three factories in Emmen. A spinning plant, converting and after treatment facilities and our Endumax® plant.
At the spinning plant the polymer we make in our factory in Delfzijl is dissolved and spun into Twaron® yarn. Part of the production yield goes to our converting and after treatment facilities, where we process it in accordance with the customers wishes. For instance, by processing it into pulp, twisting it, cutting it into short pieces or applying a special coating.
Wuppertal is home to a large part of our Sales & Marketing Department, our Application Competence Center (ACC). Here we work on ballistic solutions, protective clothing, friction products, sealing materials and specialty paper products for customers around the globe.
Our Wuppertal team works in close cooperation with our Research & Development Center, our production sites and our other international sales offices all over the world in Conyers (North America), Sao Paolo, Pune, Shanghai and Tokyo.
