Aramid Thread

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

Nomex®

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.

Kevlar®

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.
