  “Aramid” is short for “aromatic polyamide”, aramid fibers are man-made high-performance fibers, it has below good characteristics:

1. High strength

2. Non-conductive

3. No melting point

4. Good abrasion resistance

5. Good resistance to organic solvents

6. Low flammability

7. Good fabric integrity at high temperature


 Also, it has a shortcoming, poor resistance to light , it can’t be exposed at sunlight directly. If it keeps being exposed to sunlight for a year, its strength (the tension under the cross-sectional area) will drop by 50%.


 Aramid is mainly divided into two kinds, para-aramid and meta-aramid. Para-aramid has a better strength than meta-aramid, and para-aramid not only have flame resistant function, but also can be cut resistant, abrasion resistant, bullet proof, but meta-aramid is mainly used on flame retardant area. Also, the temperature para-aramid can stand is higher than meta-aramid.


 According to their characteristics, we can use them widely on many industries, such as national defense and military, aerospace, electromechanics, construction, automotive, sporting goods and other aspects of national economy.
