Aramids

Our Sontara® Aramid Fabrics can be used for fabric liners and apparel interfacings for turnout gear, fire-blocking materials, protection of batteries, transformers, and high-speed equipment, filtration, and many other uses. All Sontara® Aramid Fabrics are created with proprietary Sontara® technology. Our unique production process ensures that all products are soft, drapable, binder- and resin-free and offer excellent dimensional stability. With supply and trademark license agreements with DuPont™ in place, Glatfelter is delighted to offer nonwoven fabrics containing Kevlar® and Nomex®. Sontara® Aramid fabrics have been produced at the Sontara® Old Hickory, TN, plant since 1987. Sontara® is happy to partner to customize products to meet specific requirements.

    Sontara® Kevlar® advantages

    • Low shrinkage allows it to maintain its dimensional stability at high temperatures.
    • Ideal for applications where high thermal protection and flame resistance is needed.
    • Cut resistance, making it ideal for applications requiring durability.
    • High homogeneity, fabric integrity and dimensional stability makes it ideal for resin impregnation.
    • Soft and drapable.

    Sontara® Nomex® advantages

    • High thermal performance in end-use applications requiring durability, strength retention, low heat release and non-flammability.
    • Nomex® SL provides protection at high temperatures.
    • Bulky structure, which allows easy saturation. Smooth surface area provides excellent surface finish and adhesion.
    • Excellent electrical insulation properties.
    • Light weight for applications like batteries.

    Product Offering

    The Sontara® Kevlar® Z-11 is ideal for:

    • Composites / Calendar rolls
    • Fire blocking for transportation seating and for residential and commercial furnishing

    Unique features and benefits of Sontara® Kevlar® Z-11:

    • Low shrinkage allows it to maintain its dimensional stability at high temperatures
    • The Kevlar® SL does not melt, but chars at 800°F/427°C, making it ideal for applications where high thermal protection and flame resistance is needed
    • Cut resistance, making it ideal for applications requiring durability
    • High homogeneity, fabric integrity and dimensional stability makes it ideal for resin impregnation
    • Soft and drapable

    The Sontara® Nomex® E-88 is ideal for:

    • Automotive
    • Filtration (hot liquid and gas)
    • Electrical insulation
    • Apparel interfacing
    • Aerospace

    Unique features and benefits of Sontara® Nomex® E-88:

    • High thermal performance in end-use applications requiring durability, strength retention, low heat release and non-flammability
    • Nomex® SL provides protection at high temperatures
    • Bulky structure, which allows easy saturation. Smooth surface area provides excellent surface finish and adhesion
    • Excellent electrical insulation properties
    • Light weight for applications like batteries

    The Sontara® Kevlar® SL Type E-89 is ideal for:

    • Protective apparel/turn out gears

    Unique features and benefits of Sontara® Kevlar® SL Type E-89:

    • Minimal shrinkage at high temperatures or when flame is present — the excellent dimensional stability of Kevlar®, combined with the flame-resistant qualities of Nomex®, produces a fabric that will resist flame shrinkage, high temperature and break-open flame better than Nomex® alone.
    • Customized fiber blends can be produced to create a unique fabric designed to fit your specific thermal protection needs
    • Excellent surface for laminating to various films and coatings
    • Available in range of basis weights, which allows engineered multi-layer barriers to meet various Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) requirements
