Silicone-coated aramid fabric is a type of textile material that consists of aramid fibers, such as Kevlar or Nomex, coated with a layer of silicone. Aramid fibers are synthetic fibers known for their exceptional strength and heat resistance. Silicone, on the other hand, is a versatile polymer with excellent chemical resistance, thermal stability, and low toxicity.
When these two materials are combined, the resulting fabric offers a range of beneficial properties. The aramid fibers provide high tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and dimensional stability, while the silicone coating enhances the fabric’s heat resistance, flexibility, and water repellency.
