ARACON metal clad fiber is a revolutionary product available only from Micro-Coax. It combines the conductivity of an outer metal coating with the strength, lightweight and flexibility of aramid fiber.
DuPont developed ARACON by metalizing Kevlar fibers. Kevlar® is well known for its use in bullet resistant vests, high speed boats, and military helmets.
With the addition of nickel, copper, and silver coatings of varying thickness, ARACON fiber provides a versatile combination of physical and electrical properties for a variety of demanding applications.
Yarns made from ARACON fiber are available standard on Wardwell or New England Butt braider bobbins. Custom put-ups are also available upon request
