Chinese break monopoly in PPTA fibre

Yantai Spandex Co. Ltd - China's largest production base of specialty fibers - announced on June 13, the successful start-up of industrial production of PPTA. It has a capacity to produce 1,000 tons PPTA per year.

This indicates that China will now be able to end the monopoly of the United States, Japan and other developed countries in the industry for about 40 years.

DuPont first successfully developed PPTA in 1970s. For a long period of time, only the United States, Japan and a handful of countries had the capability to produce PPTA. China started research and development in 1970s, but could not achieve a breakthrough in key engineering technology, so domestic aramid demand had to completely rely on imports.

Yantai Spandex Co., Ltd. achieved a major breakthrough in key technology after several years of research by relying on independent innovation, investing several million Yuan in research. The pilot line was completed in 2007 with independent intellectual property rights.

The industrial project of 1,000 tons PPTA / year has been set up at a total investment of 250 million Yuan, construction of the project started in October 2009 and was completed in late 2010.

High-tech fiber materials like aramid fibers, carbon fibers and polyethylene fibers are said to be world's three high-performance fibers today, which are widely used in aerospace, military, security, backbone equipment, transportation, automobile manufacturing, and other key areas.
