Aramid

Aramid fibers for high performance applications.

Aramid is a synthetic polyamide polymer with long chain-like molecules that are highly oriented along the fiber axis. This molecular structure produces remarkable tensile strength and impact resistance that is beneficial in demanding applications. Lightweight and flexible, with a high strength-to-weight ratio, aramid fibers are commonly used in armor and ballistic protection applications, and in other high impact applications. Aramid can be molded using a number of processes including pultrusion.
