Michelin’s ultrahigh-performance tire for the super sports car segment uses Teijin Aramid’s Twaron as a reinforcement material. According to tests by TÜV SÜD, the Pilot Super Sport, which was developed jointly with Porsche, BMW M, and Ferrari, performs extremely well in the fastest segment of the automotive market. The Twaron material ensures that the tire remains in its most ideal shape even at extreme high speeds, has high-speed stability, and resists high temperatures. These features make it suitable for the speeds reached at the racing circuit. According to Teijin Aramid, Twaron is five times stronger than steel at equivalent weight and is resistant to heat and wear.
