Aramid Fibres

Aromatic polyamides (polyparaphenylene terephthalamide) as reinforcing fibres are characterised by very high tensile strength and modulus, low density and good heat resistance. In composite form they outperform glass fibres on these properties when compared on an equal volume-fraction-of-reinforcement basis. Compressive strength, however, is much lower for aramid reinforced composites. Machining (sawing, drilling, grinding) of aramid […]
