Because of the heat, the fabric reinforcement is typically woven from a polyaramid fiber.
The entire hose is reinforced with a braid of steel and polyaramid yarn to ensure durability and flexibility.
Typical body armor consists of several layers of a polyaramid (Kevlar) fabric, but these fabrics tend to be heavy and hot.
The fabrication of CNWs is analogous to the crystalline spinning technique first developed by DuPont to make Kevlar (a polyaramid fiber).
The machine can be scaled up to 4 spinning units in a production line and is offered for wide range of materials such as PA6, Polyaramid, Polyurethane and Polyvinyaalcohol, etc.
Tight buffer is fiber optic cable made by encircling several pieces of fiber optic round the core and than it is covered with solid material such as polyaramid and then it is wrapped with plastic mainly PVC which is resistant to heat.
The latter technique could be applied to the particular case of semicrystalline fibers such as polyaramid fibers, where the 3D fiber orientation can be determined from pole figures (16).
Typical insulating material includes vulcanized rubber, polyaramid paper, or polyimide film.
The first developments in highly oriented polymers were performed on fibres in the 1970s, in particular the polyaramid fibres ([Kevlar.
The line spun by the spider is five times stronger than steel, and much tougher than polyaramid Kevlar, the material used in bullet-proof vests and facial masks; it can absorb five times the impact force of Kevlar without breaking.
The OenoClear filter has a unique polyaramid membrane configured in a single open-ended cartridge designed for use in a sanitary housing.
Sharply reduced vehicle weight (as much as 75 percent), thanks to bodies made from molded composites (car polyaramid, for instance), rather than steel.
