USES AND APPLICATIONS
DuPont™ Kevlar® and DuPont™ Nomex® helps manufacturers in aerospace, marine, and rail industries to build aircraft, ships, and rail carriages. Learn how the remarkable performance characteristics of Kevlar® and Nomex® can help to increase fuel efficiency – and decrease operating and maintenance costs.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) suits are designed using inherent flame-resistant inner and outer layers made of Nomex® fibre and flexible, semi-rigid and rigid ballistic protective elements made of Kevlar® fibre. The suits are tailored for protection and mobility, dexterity and comfort for each body part.
Kevlar® provides high tensile strength, helping to safeguard fiber optic cables against mechanical stresses to ensure optimal performance. Learn how the inherent dielectric properties, light weight, small diameter, and flexibility of Kevlar® meet requirements for a wide variety of fiber optic cable applications.
Ropes and cables made of DuPont™ Kevlar® help deliver performance and value to customers in the fine gauge cable industry by helping to provide excellent robustness, fatigue resistance, shrinkage, and durability. From land to sea to space, learn how Kevlar® brand fiber has helped strengthen ropes and cables to stand up to temperature extremes and harsh environments.
The quest for lighter, stronger and safer sporting goods has made Kevlar® fiber a popular choice for manufacturers and consumers alike. Read on to discover how athletes and enthusiasts now benefit from the same superior performance that has transformed so many industrial and life-protection applications.
