Aramid fibers are notable for their heat-resistence and strength. They are most often used in aerospace and military applications, particularly in personal armor composites for protection from ballistic forces.
DuPont has launched Kevlar XP for hard armor applications to provide extra protection and extra performance in ballistic protection applications.

Teijin and the group’s core aramid-fibers business Teijin Aramid B.V. will jointly expand the worldwide sales of Technora in response to increasing market demand worldwide.The markets: Sports and recreation (2016) CompositesWorld
Big for composites in the 1990s, the sporting goods/recreation market is, today, generally characterized today by incremental development. Exceptions to that rule, however are bicycle frames and protective headgear, for two, which continue to provide stimulus for new development.Teijin para-aramid fabric protects structures from airborne volcanic fragments CompositesWorld
Designed specifically for use in Japan and other volcano-prone regions, the para-aramids protect structures from fragments as large as 100 mm in diameter.Report from IBEX 2015 CompositesWorld
As always, IBEX supplied new products, processes and education, not only to boatbuilders, but to the composites industry overall.Teijin Aramid halts research on new DAPBI-containing aramid copolymers CompositesWorld
The DAPBI monomer showed promise enhancing aramid performance in anti-ballistic performance, but Teijin Aramid discovered it poses a severe health threat to people involved in production of the monomer and copolymer.
