DuPont™ Kevlar® is an organic fiber in the aromatic polyamide family. The unique properties and distinct chemical composition of wholly aromatic polyamides (aramids) distinguish them - and especially Kevlar® - from other commercial, man-made fibers.
Kevlar® has a unique combination of high strength, high modulus, toughness and thermal stability. It was developed for demanding industrial and advanced-technology applications. Currently, many types of Kevlar® are produced to meet a broad range of end uses.
The Kevlar® Technical Guide contains technical information primarily about Kevlar® industrial yarns, as well as some basic information on Kevlar® short fibers. To download the Kevlar® Technical Guide and learn more about Kevlar® properties, please click here.
