pAramid, also known by the trade names of Kevlar, Twaron, Technora, Heracron & Alkex, is used in the manufacture of high performance components. pAramid is a durable man-made fibre that offers high tensile strength, low density and strong impact and abrasion resistance characteristics. The Luxon range of pAramid fibre fabrics are compatible with the Polyester, Vinylester and Epoxy matrix resin systems. However, it is recommended that these fabrics be used with Epoxy resin systems to complement their high performance properties.
pAramid fabrics are used in a diverse range of composite applications including lightweight structural components, racing yachts, powerboats, racing car components, rowing shells and any composite reinforcing application where abrasion resistance is required.
