Q&A about Kevlar Webbing
What's the difference between Kevlar webbing & Dyneema Webbing?
They all have the features of ultra strong tensile strength, although UHMWPE webbing is better than Aramid webbing. But UHMWPE has the major disadvantage that compared with aramid is, it cannot bear a high temperature more than 120C. So if your webbing components shall work in a harsh and heated environment, then you should choose aramid webbing. Otherwise, you can choose UHMWPE webbing which is stronger and cheaper.
Yes, UHMWPE is cheaper than aramid in material, about half the price.
How much is Kevlar webbing by the foot/yard?
It depends on the width and the thickness of the webbing. For there are various types, please let me know the specification which you demand, then I can offer accurate quotes for you.
What's the most used type of Kevlar webbing?
2inches|50mm, 1.75inches|45mm and 1.5inches|38mm in width. But the thickness also has various types. It's really hard to produce every type of webbing as there are so many. So we might have the adjacent produced type for sample, but if you have the specific model required, mostly we need to make them after your order.
Is Jude a manufacturer of webbing?
Absolutely yes, and we have a full manufacturing system of textiles made of Ultra Performance Fibers. Not only can provide special sewing threads, strings, rope, straps, webbing, and fabric, also can make them with para-aramid | Kevlar, meta-aramid | Nomex, UHMWPE | Dyneema | Spectra, PBO, etc.
How much the high temperature is that Kevlar webbing can stand?
For different woven techniques, the thicker the products are, the better they can bear the heat. Like 2mm in the thickness of Kevlar webbing is better than 0.58mm in the thickness of Kevlar fabric(420gsm) in heat bearing. Mostly the safe working temperature of Kevlar/Para-aramid products are below 260C|500F, temporarily work below 320C|600F. The best way to find out is to have the sample to test, please send me an inquiry e-mail.
