Aramid Fibres

Aromatic polyamides (polyparaphenylene terephthalamide) as reinforcing fibres are characterised by very high tensile strength and modulus, low density and good heat resistance.

Compressive strength, however, is much lower for aramid reinforced composites. Machining (sawing, drilling, grinding) of aramid […]
