DuPont™ Kevlar® is a para-aramid (aromatic polyamide) fiber that comes in different forms, each suited to a specific set of consumer and industrial applications. DuPont offers Kevlar® in the form of cut fiber that can be converted into yarn or thread, continuous filament yarn,  fibrillated pulp, and sheets that provide the structure for mechanical paper. As our customers continue to use Kevlar® to help enhance performance and increase safety, DuPont works with them to explore new possibilities for Kevlar® innovations.

Kevlar® Engineered Elastomer
Kevlar® Engineered Elastomer

DuPont™ Kevlar® Engineered Elastomer is a dispersion of a highly branched p-aramid pulp available in a family of rubber matrices. It is based upon a proprietary technology that opens the structure of the highly branched pulp and allows it to be uniformly dispersed into our customers’ rubber formulations enabling efficient reinforcement.
