Aramid

KEVLAR® fiber was developed by DuPontTM in the early 1970’s. These fibers are an organic fiber found in the aromatic polyamide (aramid) family and are typically gold in color.

KEVLAR® is best suited for applications were toughness is preferred. In addition, KEVLAR® fibers offer high strength, low weight, desired stiffness and thermal stability. These fibers are 43% lighter than fiberglass, twice as strong as E-glass, and ten times as strong as aluminum. These unique properties make it an exceptional fiber for use in composite reinforcements, ballistics applications, ropes, cables and protective apparel.

Note: Due to these unique properties we recommend using specialized shears for cutting. KEVLAR® fibers are difficult to sand and are adversely affected by UV light so it is often buried under fiberglass or other material. All data to be used as a guide only; not a specification.
