Kevlar is an incredibly durable and strong material that is widely used to protect against impact and penetration. Described as being, “five times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis”, Musto uses it to reinforce garments to ensure heightened resilience against wear.
Kevlar® is an example of an aromatic polyamide, or aramid, for short. This is because it is a man-made material with a strong, circular molecular construction that connect together to form long chains. It is this molecular-level strength that lends Kevlar the durability that it is famous for.
