Automotive Power Train & Body Components Reinforcements

Stronger Automotive Components Include Kevlar® Brake Pads

DuPont™ Kevlar® helps provide strength, endurance, and stability to enhance automotive power train and body components and brake pads.

DuPont™ Kevlar® brand aramid fiber helps improves the safety, performance, and durability of automotive components for a wide variety of vehicles, from passenger cars and light trucks to professional racecars. It is not uncommon for a new vehicle to have several crucial parts that employ products made by DuPont such as Kevlar® automotive power train components, Kevlar® body components, and Kevlar® brake pads.

Brake pads

The frictional forces that brake pads are designed to endure take less of a toll on brake pads made with Kevlar® pulp. The enhanced thermal stability and inherent abrasion resistance of brake pads reinforced with Kevlar® helps them to last long and stop the vehicle safely and quietly.

Clutches

Kevlar® pulp provides an effective solution for clutches, which undergo severe frictional stresses. Tests have shown that clutch linings that use Kevlar® do not require service or replacement as frequently as standard clutch linings.
 

Gaskets

Chemical stability and thermal stability help make gaskets reinforced with Kevlar® pulp strong and durable.
