Aramid Wrap AFRP

Aramid fibers (also known as aromatic polyamide fibers) have high strength, a high elastic modulus, and 40% lower density than glass fibers. Kevlar and Nomex are two well-known aramids. The cost of aramid fibers is higher than glass and basalt fibers making them less common in structural applications. In addition, aramid fibers will absorb moisture so careful storage and planning of a project using aramid fiber is critical until the fibers have been impregnated within a polymer matrix.
