TWARON® is a p-phenylene terephthalamide (PpPTA) Aramid synthetic fibre (phew..), a close relative of Kevlar and as such has unique properties that can be utilised for very effective sound absorption within speaker cabinets. The mechanism for attenuation is Twarons ability to efficiently convert vibration into low level heat. This innovative product is very different to standard wadding.
Twaron Angel hair is easy to work with and non-aging. It has a very high expansion ratio and will always try to fill the available space - all that is required is 3-5 grams of Twaron per litre of internal cabinet volume, making it very economical and far less likely to overdamp the midrange which can happen with traditional waddings such as wool, polyester or bonded acetate fibre (BAF).
