DuPont™ KEVLAR® is an organic fibre in the aromatic polyamide (aramid) family. The chemical structure of para-aramids distinguishes them from other commercial man-made and natural fibers and gives KEVLAR® its unique properties. It has high strength, high modulus (stiffness), toughness and thermal stability.
In addition, it is resistant to many of the chemicals and solvents encountered in today’s industrial environment. This combination of properties makes it an exceptional fibre for use in tyre reinforcement, ballistics applications, ropes and cables, and in protective apparel where high strength, and thermal, puncture, and cut resistance are required.
