KEVLAR® FABRIC TECHNOLOGY
Kevlar is an incredibly durable and strong material that is widely used to protect against impact and penetration. Described as being, “five times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis”, Musto uses it to reinforce garments to ensure heightened resilience against wear.
WHAT IS KEVLAR® FABRIC TECHNOLOGY?
Kevlar® is an example of an aromatic polyamide, or aramid, for short. This is because it is a man-made material with a strong, circular molecular construction that connect together to form long chains. It is this molecular-level strength that lends Kevlar the durability that it is famous for.
THE BENEFITS OF KEVLAR®
- Strong but light – some types have a tensile strength over eight times that of steel wire
- It withstands the extremes of temperatures well
- Kevlar resists the effects of salt, sea and other naturally-occurring chemicals that may impede performance over time
