Teijin Aramid Unveils Woven Matrix Concept June 20 2022

2022 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, June 20, 2022

The Woven Matrix concept is a fiber-based matrix designed to simplify the production of a wide range of ballistic protection solutions. It is produced using Twaron, Teijin Aramid’s high-performance para-aramid.
The Woven Matrix concept enables the binding resin to be incorporated during the weaving step, thereby circumventing the additional pre-pregging step. This important breakthrough means that weavers without pre-pregging capabilities can produce high-strength protective fabrics with a resin for developing ballistic resistance in various protective equipment. In this way, Teijin Aramid’s solution enables fabrics to be supplied in regions where pre-pregging is not available.

The key advantages of the Woven Matrix concept include:
• Enables the binding resin to be incorporated during the weaving step
• Increased flexibility regarding fabric weight and width as well as resin content, including double-siding
• Enables better shaping, as the matrix is bound to the fabric
• Fabrics can be stored at room temperature, without specific cooling conditions
• Products remain stable during storage and transportation
• Improved drapeability versus regular prepreg materials
• Solvent-free thermoplastic with a lower health and environmental impact
