Aramid yarn

Our aramid fiber, ALKEX® was developed in 2003 with our proprietary technology and successfully commercialized in 2009. It is actively applied for bulletproofing, automotive rubber reinforcement, and many industrial purposes. We aim to become a solution provider capable of meeting the needs of various customers with diverse, differentiated products.

Key Strengths

  • 5 times stronger than steel
  • High elastic modulus
  • High tensile strength
  • High heat resistance, non-combustible even at 500 ℃

Yarn

Aramid Yarn
(Regular, High Tenacity, High Modulus)
Aramid Yarn is a high-performance super fiber that has strength that is five times that of steel as well as fire-retardant properties. Aramid Yarn is used for bulletproofing, automobile hoses, belt and tire reinforcement, optical cable and rope reinforcement, civil engineering and construction, and reinforcement of composite materials.

Applications

  • Fabric
    Aramid Yarn is used as a core material for bulletproof jackets, bulletproof helmets, and bulletproof vehicles.
  • Staple, Spun Yarn
    Aramid yarn has been processed into staple or spun yarn to protect against the dangers of blades and spikes.
  • Uni-directional
    Aramid yarn is processed into Uni-directional fabric made of each filament running in the same single direction and each fabric layer is cross-plied at 0°/90°. It is used as a core material for bulletproof jackets, bulletproof helmets, and bulletproof vehicles.
