Aramid yarn, also known as Kevlar, is a high-strength synthetic fiber that is often used in various applications where high tensile strength and durability are required. One such application is in fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) materials, where aramid yarn is used as a reinforcing material.
FRP composites are materials made by combining a polymer matrix (such as epoxy resin) with a reinforcing material (such as aramid yarn). The resulting composite material has enhanced properties such as increased strength, stiffness, and durability compared to the base polymer matrix.
Aramid yarn is often used as a reinforcing material in FRP composites due to its high tensile strength, excellent resistance to abrasion and impact, and good thermal stability. FRP composites reinforced with aramid yarn are commonly used in industries such as aerospace, automotive, marine, and construction, among others.
