Aramid Fiber

 

Aramid fiber (1961) is a synthetic, fire-resistant polyamide fiber, extensively used in the aerospace and military for structural formations, asbestos substitutes and ballistic protection. Derivatives of the original aramid are Para-aramid fibers, such as Kevlar (also produced as Twaron). Military applications of aramid fibers are in flame resistant clothing, protective vests and helmets, and various composite materials.
