Aramid fibre is more commonly known as Kevlar fabric or Twaron fabric. Kevlar cloth/Twaron cloth is used to make or repair a variety of products such as personal armour, racing canoes, mooring lines and many others. The Kevlar cloth /Twaron cloth has excellent impact resistance and abrasion properties.
Aramid fabrics are made up of long-chain polyamides. Aramid fibre fabric possesses high tensile strength, making it suitable for ballistic armour protection applications. Aramid fabric typically has a distinctive yellow colour and is also often used as reinforcement material.
Due to their high strength, durability, density and weight, components made from Aramid fabric such as Kevlar/Twaron are being used in aerospace, engineering, automotive and marine applications.
Composites4U supplies this reinforcement material from leading European manufacturers. This range of material is available in a variety of weights and weaves, along with a selection of hybrid carbon Kevlar fabric /carbon Twaron fabric. If you are not sure what type of Aramid (Twaron/Kevlar) fabric you are looking for, please get in touch with us. We will happily provide you with technical support or small samples so you can make an informed purchase.
Kevlar material has remarkable strength and durability. Due to these features, the material is particularly favoured in the defence industry where it is commonly used for bulletproof vests for law enforcement, personnel and the military. Five times stronger than steel and much stronger than fibreglass, Kevlar is also favoured in the marine, aerospace, automotive and engineering industries.
Further characteristics of Kevlar fabric include:
These features are an excellent example of why Kevlar/Twaron is one of the most popular choices for protection and casing purposes. The self-extinguishing, flame resisting, and low conductivity properties make Kevlar/Twaron a popular component for wire casings and insulation as well as firefighting protection. Interestingly, Kevlar fabric /Twaron fabric has a elongation break point at about 4 percent.
Composites4U has high quality Twaron/ Kevlar fabric for sale from leading European manufacturers who ship their products around the world to be used in high quality applications.
