Kevlar® Cable


Kevlar® 49 is an aramid fibre developed by Dupont offering lightweight, high strength and modulus, with excellent resistance to tension fatigue. In any area where stiffness, or strength to weight ratio is important, Kevelar® provides an excellent design material, supplied with a durable black UV resistant jacket. OYS suggest a maximum working load of 40%. Larger sizes are available on request.
