Spun Kevlar A-A-55195
Although Kevlar’s heat resistance is not as great as that of Nomex, Kevlar’s strength is superior to all other fibers. In fact, Kevlar is five times stronger than steel by weight. It has become the thread choice in those special high stress, volatile applications that require extreme strength and heat protection.
