What is Aramid?
Aramid is short for “aromatic polyamide”. It is a class of man-made strong synthetic fibres with high performance. They were originally developed for and used in aerospace or military applications. Molecules of those fibres are characterised 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 fibre is thinner than the average of human hair, and it has a distinctive yellow colour. It can be weaved and coloured for different patterns. For more information, you can read our comprehensive article of this material.
What are the benefits of Aramid fibres?
Aramid fibres share some general characteristics that distinguish them from other synthetic fibres:
Good resistance to abrasion
Good resistance to organic solvents
No melting point
Aramid VS Carbon(Karbon)
Due to the misleading of the manufacturers, most people are confusing Carbon phone cases with Aramid phone cases. In fact, they are absolutely two different things. Carbon fiber is conductive, so it blocks signals greatly when built for phone cases. However, carbon fiber is excellent for RFID-Blocking and therefore makes an excellent material for wallets as it keeps your data secure. Aramid fiber, on contrast, is non-conductive and has more soft touch.It is perfect material for phone case. You can have a quick understanding of the differences from the column on the right of this page. We also have a fair comprehensive article comparing carbon fiber and aramid fiber.
