Kevlar Fabric in Carton Boxes

Apart from the WOVEN FABRIC, there are three kinds of fabrics made of Kevlar material, but have different production techniques:

  1. Uni-directional Fabric: more like a plastic sheet than soft textile, but it’s a cost-efficient bulletproof material for stopping handgun bullets.
  2. Knitted Fabric: mostly used to make cut-proof and heat-resistant gloves, and protective suits, applied as lining fabric.
  3. Non-woven Fabric: it’s a kind of thin or thick felt according to its areal weight produced, in good abrasion and filter features, can bear heat up to 250~300 degrees Celsius, and serve for a long time.

There are several most used models of woven fabrics which were made of Kevlar or Twaron filaments. Please feel free to send me an email, I’ll be glad to have your inquiry and reply with all the infomation you demand.

Q&A of Kevlar Fabrics

Could I buy a small quantity for a test?

Sure, you can buy 1 sq. meter to test before any formal purchase, and we recommended this way to avoid selling/buying the improper fabric. They are not ordinary materials and not cheap though. After a satisfactory examination or prototype building, you will have the confidence to purchase Kevlar fabric rolls properly.

How many layers of Kevlar fabric can stop bullets?

For different kinds of guns and bullets, the layers will be different. In general, 36~48 layers of 200gsm Kevlar woven/UD fabrics would stop the 7.62mm bullets. As a matter of fact, stopping is not enough for good protection, combining with a solid plate and a sponge is the minimum safe request for the man-wear bulletproof vests, and combined ceramic/SiC/Ai2O3 plats with layers of Kevlar fabrics will be the best bulletproof equipment, which is exactly the solution with most of the military.

Should I choose the woven fabric or UD fabric to build a reliable bulletproof vest?

Kevlar UD fabric is the better cost-efficient material to make pistol-bullet-proof vests and suits. Please refer to the UD fabric page: Bulletproof Uni-directional Fabric

Applications of Kevlar® | Para-aramid Fabric

Define: Kevlar® & Nomex® Fiber

These two brands belong to DuPontTM. They are the most used ARAMID material, Kevlar® is para-aramid and always has a natural color of yellow, on the other hand, Nomex® is meta-aramid and has a natural color of white.

Kevlar® has successfully emerged as one of the ultra high-performance fibers since it’s been first introduced by Stephanie Kwolek in 1971 and was registered by DuPont as a famous para-aramid material commercial brand. This magic fiber has various amazing features: long-term working in high-temperature environments, high tensile load, and low elongation.
