Kevlar®

Kevlar®, manufactured by DuPont, is a very well-known and frequently used para-aramid fiber, used in firefighting, fall protection, and industrial OEM applications. Kevlar® is flame- and heat-resistant (decomposing at 900°F) and is commonly used in conjunction with Nomex® to create a unique look or feel.

In addition to heat-resistance, Kevlar® has several other notable properties:

  • High strength to weight ratio
  • Low elongation to break
  • Good chemical resistance (Kevlar® will degrade in Formic, Hydrochloric, and Sodium Hydroxide acid)
  • High cut resistance
  • UV resistance good (black)
  • UV resistance poor (natural)
