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), we can 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, 800DEN, 1000DEN, 1500DEN and 3000DEN, we managed to weave the fabric of the specifications from 0.09mm to 0.58mm in thickness, and from 50g/sqm to 420g/gsm in fabric weight. Beyond the range won’t stock in the warehouse but can be developed at accurate specifications as you requested, and the MOQ is acceptable for most clients.

How to cut the Kevlar Fabric more easier?

As the well-known properties, if Kevlar can be cut easily like ordinary polyester, nylon, etc. fabrics, it should be conflict with I claimed the anti-cut or high modulus features. The truth is the Kevlar Fabric is really hard to cut, especially when the thickness of the fabric is thcker than 0.2mm. When you tried to cut it with the household scissors, you’ll find the edges will turn to blunt in seconds after you started to shear.

KevlarFabricCutterDIY

There are a lot of industrial scissors are used, but I strongly recommended the electric cutter/scissors I currently used. If you haven’t got a handy tool to deal with the kevlar textiles, you can take one with the sample or the goods from my side. Whether or not, it’s up to you. I only offer a suggestion here and hope everything goes well with your new stuff developing.

The EC cutter 2rd Gen can work well with all the fabric we sell on this website, for 420gsm(0.58mm thick) Kevlar woven fabric, 400gsm(0.72mm thick) UHMWPE woven fabric, 600gsm Kevlar non-woven felt, and 600gsm Kevlar or UHMWPE knitted fabric, and all the thinner ones.

And you can also cut the webbing that we produced, in the thickness from 0.5mm t0 5mm. You should aware as long as the webbing is thickness than 2mm, it should be difficult to cut off, especially they were made of Kevlar or UHMWPE. But with the EC cutter 2rd Gen, you would love it after the first trial.

There are two sets available: 2 packs of Li-ion batteries set have the best portable convenience, and if there is any concern about the approval of the dangerous good of Li-ion batteries by air express, there is also a plug-in-only set for choice.

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

Uni-directional Fabric: more like a plastic than the soft textile, but it’s the cost-efficient bullet-proof material.

Knitted Fabric: usually used to make cut-proof and heat-resistant gloves, protective suits, etc.

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

Is Kevlar fabric made of yarn or fiber?

Sewing threads are usually made by more than a yarn, like 20S/2 aramid thread means, the yarn is the 20s, spun 2 yarns together to make the 20S/2 thread. The others are 20S/3, 40S/2, and 40S/3, etc.
In general, threads are used to make webbing sometimes, but rarely to make fabric except for canvas. The most used woven aramid fabrics are made of 1000D, 1500D and 3000D filaments.

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 PC plate and a sponge is the minimum safe request for a soft bulletproof vest, and combined ceramic plats with layers of Kevlar fabrics will be the best bulletproof equipment as the US military did.

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.
