Project Description

Woven Fabric Made of Kevlar® | Para-aramid

At present, you may seek for some Kevlar fabric to build armor, or protect your high-tech battery pack, or want to build some particular components.  We are here with the most experienced engineer and weaving machines that can optimize your success and save your time to find a reliable manufacturing supplier. Although the quantity you need is few, as far as we have the products in stock, we can make the delivery ASAP. If you achieved the Minimum Order Quantity(MOQ) of make-to-order, we could produce a sample for you after receiving the specifications and CAD files, even cutting and sewing works are included. That means you can get an out-of-the-box component.

As world-known ultra-high strength, high modulus and high-temperature resistant fiber, Kevlar®, with the fiber types of 200DEN, 400DEN, 1000DEN, 1500DEN and 3000DEN, we managed to weave the fabric of the specifications from 0.09mm to 0.58mm in thickness, and from 50sqm to 420gsm in nominal/areal weight. Beyond the range we won't stock in the warehouse but can develop specifically as you requested, and the MOQ is acceptable for most clients.

Please be aware of:

  1. Generally, the Kevlar fabrics are in same width of 1 meter (39"), maximum make-to-order width is 1.5 meter (59").
  2. An entire roll of Kevlar fabric contains 100 meters (109 yards) in length.
  3. The A4-size free samples are available to send, otherwise, you could buy 1 square meter to test if need.
  4. Not all models are listed as above, if there is any unlisted model you demanded, please feel free to inquiry.
  5. Most of the models are in golden color, only AF230BT & AF240BP are in black. Others colors can be make-to-order, like red, black-red(twill), black-golden(twill), etc.
  6. The listed models are basically made of Kevlar 29 or Twaron Type 1000. If you demand the high-modulus-weight fabric that made of Kevlar 49/Twaron Type 2000/2040, please inquiry kevin@sanmau.net immediately, this is the only way to get the military-level fabric.

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

  1. Uni-directional Fabric: more like a plastic than the soft textile, but it's the cost-efficient bulle-tproof material for stoping handgun bullets.
  2. Knitted Fabric: usually used to make cut-proof and heat-resistant gloves, protective suits, etc.
  3. Non-woven Fabric: like the thin or thick felt, it's a kind of good abrasion and filter material, and can bear the heat up to 250~300 degrees Celsius, 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

How many layers of Kevlar fabrics 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, stop is not enough of good protection, combine with a solide plate and a sponge is the minimum safe request for the man-wear bulletproof vest, and combined ceramic plats with layers of Kevlar fabrics will be the best bulletproof equipments, which exactly were the US military.

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

Please refer to the UD fabric page: Bulletproof Uni-directional Fabric

What's the main defect of Kevlar?

After 1,500 hours of explosing on UV light, Kevlar will lost 70% of its performance. So, you should rarely see the outdoor application of Kevlar material, unless they are wrapped in black nylon coat. Here is the properties table of several fiber below:

Applications of Kevlar® | Para-aramid Fabric

Define: Kevlar® & Nomex® Fiber

These two brands are belong to DuPontTM. They are most used ARAMID material, which 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 out as one of the ultra high-performance fiber since it's been first introduced by Stephanie Kwolek on 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 environment, high tensile load, low elongation.
