The term “aramid” is short for “aromatic polyamide,” and this polymer fiber was first used commercially in the early 1960s. Brand name products such as Kevlar, Twaron, Nomex, New Star, and Teijinconex are aramids, and most consumers recognize the Kevlar brand, which is trademarked by Dupont. Technically, Kevlar is a para-aramid fiber, and, like all para-aramid fibers, it has excellent strength-to-weight properties.
All aramid fibers are resistant to abrasion, flame resistant, hold up well to organic solvents, are nonconductive, and have no melting point. Because of its unique and desirable properties, aramid fiber is used in the production of goods by several industries. Items made from aramid fiber include: flame-resistant clothing, body armor, optical fiber cable systems, sail cloth, jet engine enclosures, tennis strings, hockey sticks, and snowboards.
