Is Aramid the same as Kevlar®? What are the differences between them?

Kevlar® is a registered trademark of E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (DuPont™). Kevlar® is a para-aramid fiber in the aromatic polyamide family, created in DuPont's lab in 1965. It possesses unique combination of high strength, toughness and thermal stability. It can be spun and weaved into different fabric structures including woven, non-woven and knitted, or blended or coated for more of different functions.

Kevlar® is inherently flame retardant. It does not drip or melt when exposed to open fire, and only begins to char at 400°C.

There are many different applications with Kevlar® that go beyond everyone's imagination. Kevlar® helps make a wide variety of Protective Products in the future and meet the diverse needs.
