- Heat resistance: Aramid fiber owns an excellent thermal stability, as important as glass fiber. Aramid fiber doesn’t fire in a normal oxygen
rate and remains not much flammable.
- Thermal insulation: Aramid fiber has a good resistance to hot temperatures (melting point: 500°C).
- Dimensional stability: Aramid fiber is stable with 3.5% of breaking extension. Aramid fiber knows few extensions and shrinkage in normal use conditions. It is between glass and carbon fibers.
- Tensile strength: It has a good resistance to traction but it is hard to cut and machine it. However, it is twice as much resistant as polyester fiber.
- Electric insulation: Aramid fiber owns excellent dielectric qualities. It is a non conductive material.
- UV and chemical products sensitive.
