What is 600D
Aramid Fiber?

600D aramid fiber refers to the microgroove aramid fiber cloth with the density of 800d*600d, and with a width of about 0.23mm. D, short for Denier, indicates the filament linear density of the aramid yarn.

What is 600D Aramid Fiber

PITAKA Always Go
For Selective Material

600D aramid fiber is exquisite and stylish but twill deformation is very likely to happen before its solidifying, so its yield rate is very low and the cost of manufacture is high. PITAKA is one of the few companies that adopts selective 600D aramid fiber in manufacturing products. Compared with other aramid fiber of different deniers, like 1500D aramid fiber, 600D aramid fiber is harder to produce, so its supply is limited.

Complicated Craftsmanship

The weaving of 600D aramid fiber requires nearly 1500 radial yarn strands and one zonal yarn strand, with a space of 0.83mm between each fiber harness. It’s more difficult to process 600D than 1500D aramid fiber. The manufacturing mold needs to be highly accurate. And techniques involved in the process of cutting, dismantling, cleaning, polishing, and coating are highly advanced, given the product could easily be bent, out of shape or pierced through by any careless handling during the process.

our products

Weaving

Nearly 1500 strands of aramid fiber (double the size of 1500D aramid fiber) are gathered and woven into a flexible fabric.
our products

Hardening

The fabric will be carefully impregnated with epoxy resin to hold them in position and make sure they will not break.

Forming

After being cut into smaller pieces than that from 1500D aramid fiber, PITAKA patented integral forming technique adds flexibility to fabric.

Cutting

Multi-angled lasers then will be used with more delicate control to cut out the accurate openings on the soft case.

Polishing

We will then get all the cases precisely coated with the special paint 3 times to make them more durable and resistant to scratches.
Why PITAKA choose 600D

Why PITAKA Choose
600D Aramid Fiber?

600D aramid fiber is a new high-tech fiber with great strength and modulus. It’s about 5-6 times stronger than steel wire but its weight is just about 1/5 of the steel wire. In addition, for a small or medium-sized product made from 600D aramid fiber, there are more lattices per unit of the microgroove fiber cloth, which means more mix of twill and plain weave. It makes the product more beautiful and more comfortable to touch. 

In other words, the product of the same model made from 600D aramid fiber is lighter and softer than that from 1500D aramid fiber.
