Polyamide vs. Kevlar

Published:

Polyamidenoun

(chemistry) Any of a range of polymers containing amide (or peptide) repeat units; examples include proteins and nylon.

Kevlar

Kevlar (para-aramid) is a heat-resistant and strong synthetic fiber, related to other aramids such as Nomex and Technora. Developed by Stephanie Kwolek at DuPont in 1965, the high-strength material was first used commercially in the early 1970s as a replacement for steel in racing tires.

Polyamidenoun

a polymer containing repeated amide groups

Polyamidenoun

a synthetic polymer of a type made by the linkage of an amino group of one molecule and a carboxylic acid group of another, including many synthetic fibres such as nylon.

Polyamide

A polyamide is a polymer with repeating units linked by amide bonds.Polyamides occur both naturally and artificially. Examples of naturally occurring polyamides are proteins, such as wool and silk.
