The material's original use was in vehicle tyres, but throughout the 1980s, DuPont introduced new varieties of Kevlar
for such uses as cut-resistant gloves and lightweight body armour.
Gustin  also studied the impact, compression after impact, and tensile stiffness properties of hybrid carbon fiber and Kevlar
Dubai: Chemical giant DuPont is expecting a 20 per cent rise in Kevlar
business from the Middle East this year as it is looking at new opportunities for growth.
When the company developed the ultrastrong, lightweight synthetic fiber Kevlar
over 40 years ago, it was put to use in a new form of body armor.
On a recent Pacific Northwest trip, we found that Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS) is using Kevlar
reinforced synthetic line to suspend temporary services.
Impact specimens in terms of composite structures consisting of Kevlar
, glass, and carbon fabrics and epoxy layers with different sequences were fabricated via hand lay-up method.
The new, innovative packaging for T-Reign Retractable Gear Tethers allows customers to test the retraction force of the Kevlar
cord without removing the product from the clam card.
For this weekend's event in Germany, Kevlar
is being used rather than steel for the rear belts as it is more puncture resistant.
The steel belts have been replaced by Kevlar
and the practice of fitting left rear tyres on the right side and vice versa (which oddly provided a performance advantage) has been outlawed.
sections are carbon threaded around the toe and heel areas where wear and tear is greatest.
