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)
