High Temperature Kevlar® - Aramid fabric

High temperature Kevlar® aramid fabric is a specialized textile material made from aramid fibers, such as Kevlar®, designed to withstand extreme heat and provide thermal protection in high-temperature applications. Here’s an overview:


  1. Aramid Fibers: High temperature Kevlar® aramid fabric is primarily composed of aramid fibers, such as Kevlar®, which are synthetic fibers known for their high strength, heat resistance, and durability. These fibers are spun from poly-para-phenylene terephthalamide (PPTA) polymer chains.

  2. Other Materials: In some cases, Kevlar® aramid fabric may be blended with other heat-resistant fibers or treated with coatings or finishes to enhance certain properties, such as abrasion resistance, flexibility, or chemical resistance.

Key Features:

  1. Extreme Heat Resistance: Kevlar® aramid fabric is capable of withstanding high temperatures, with continuous operating temperatures ranging from approximately 200°C to 300°C (392°F to 572°F), making it suitable for use in extreme heat environments such as foundries, glass manufacturing, and welding operations.

  2. Thermal Insulation: Kevlar® aramid fabric provides excellent thermal insulation properties, minimizing heat transfer and maintaining temperature stability in high-temperature equipment and processes. It helps prevent heat loss and improves energy efficiency in various industrial applications.

  3. High Strength and Durability: Kevlar® aramid fabric is known for its exceptional strength and durability, making it resistant to tearing, punctures, and abrasion. It can withstand mechanical stresses and repeated thermal cycling, ensuring long-term performance in harsh operating conditions.

  4. Flexibility: Despite its high strength and heat resistance, Kevlar® aramid fabric remains flexible and lightweight, allowing it to conform to irregular shapes and contours. This flexibility makes it suitable for applications requiring ease of handling and installation.

  5. Chemical Resistance: Kevlar® aramid fabric exhibits good resistance to most chemicals, acids, alkalis, and solvents, making it suitable for use in chemical processing, petrochemical, and power generation industries.

  6. Flame Resistance: Kevlar® aramid fabric is inherently flame-resistant and does not support combustion, making it highly resistant to fire and heat. It is often used in fireproofing applications and as a protective barrier against flames and sparks.

  7. Electrical Insulation: Kevlar® aramid fabric has excellent electrical insulation properties, making it suitable for use in electrical and electronic applications where insulation and protection against electrical hazards are essential.


  1. High-Temperature Insulation: Kevlar® aramid fabric is used for thermal insulation in various high-temperature applications, including insulation blankets, pads, and covers for pipes, ducts, boilers, and heat treatment equipment to prevent heat loss and improve energy efficiency.

  2. Fireproofing: It is used in fireproofing applications for manufacturing fire curtains, fire doors, and fire blankets to contain fires, prevent heat transfer, and protect structures and personnel in buildings, ships, and industrial facilities.

  3. Welding Protection: Kevlar® aramid fabric is used as a protective barrier for welding curtains, blankets, and shields to prevent sparks, slag, and spatter from causing damage or injury in welding and metal fabrication operations.

  4. Safety Clothing: It is used in the manufacture of safety clothing and personal protective equipment (PPE) for firefighters, industrial workers, and welders, such as heat-resistant gloves, aprons, and protective suits.

  5. Aerospace and Automotive: Kevlar® aramid fabric is used in the aerospace and automotive industries for manufacturing heat shields, insulation pads, exhaust wraps, and thermal barriers to protect components and systems from high temperatures and thermal radiation.

  6. Marine and Oil & Gas: It is used in marine and oil & gas industries for insulation of pipes, tanks, and equipment, as well as for fireproofing and safety barriers in offshore platforms, vessels, and refineries.

Overall, high temperature Kevlar® aramid fabric is a versatile and essential material in various industries where thermal insulation, fire resistance, and durability are critical requirements. Its exceptional heat resistance, thermal insulation properties, and strength make it an indispensable component in numerous industrial processes and safety applications.
