Aramid Thread

These threads have technologically advanced staple fibers that have superior strength and/or heat resistance.


Extremely heat resistant and will not burn at temperatures less than 700 degrees Fahrenheit. Nomex® thread is suited for applications that need to withstand high heat over long periods of time.


This fiber is five times stronger than steel by weight. It also has good resistance to heat over short periods of time. Uses for Kevlar® are applications that have very high stress points, and need to withstand moderate heat.
