What Is Aramid ?

Aramid is short for "aromatic polyamide". It is a class of man-made strong synthetic fibers with high performance. They were originally developed for and used in aerospace or military applications. Molecules of those fibers are featured by relatively rigid polymer chains. These molecules are linked by strong hydrogen bonds that transfer mechanical stress very efficiently, making it possible to use chains of relatively low molecular weight. Aramid fiber is thinner than the average of human hair, and it has a distinctive yellow color. It can be weaved and colored for different patterns.
