- In general aramid fibers show high tensile strength, high stiffness (modulus), good resistance to abrasion, no electric conductivity, high chemical resistance, low flammability and high temperature resistance.
- In particular bi-directional aramid fabric tapes are often used for selective reinforcement, for tube winding, lap joining, for smaller jobs as in model building and for repair of cracks in laminate surfaces. The tapes (width = 25 or 50 mm) are woven in such manner to prevent fraying of the edges. The weft yarns are looping in the fabric to ensure that the tape holds in place.
- Typical end-uses: Marine industry, Aerospace industry, Sport and leisure, Transportation industry, Industrial components.
