How to distinguish Kevlar from Nomex as webbing?
Kevlar®(Para-aramid) webbing is hard to dye, its original color is gold(yellow), and have several DOPE-DYEING (mixed color masterbatch with raw liquid before the filaments were extruded) colors: red, blue, green and black, etc. So the most common Kevlar webbing appears as yellow color. However, we can offer the non-yellow webbing which can be made of existing dope-dyeing filaments.
Nomex®(Meta-aramid) webbing can be dyed to any color, just like polyester or nylon(of course cost a little more). However, the filaments of meta-aramid are rarely used because of its price, so the meta-aramid webbing we developed generally are made of short-fibers/yarn. Please note that meta-aramid have much better performance in fire-resistant features, not matter compared with chemical-treated fireproof polyester fibers, or modacrylic fibers.
