Q: What is Kevlar? and why you use it in your jeans?
A: Definition from DuPont: Kevlar? brand fiber is an innovative technology from DuPont that combines high strength with light weight to help dramatically improve the performance of a variety of consumer and industrial products. Groundbreaking research by DuPont scientists in the field of liquid crystalline polymer solutions in 1965 formed the basis for the commercial preparation of the Kevlar? aramid fiber. Lightweight and flexible, Kevlar? has evolved over four decades of innovation to do everything from helping save thousands of lives around the world to helping make safer homes and vehicles to helping land spacecraft on Mars. If it needs to be light, strong, or safe, it needs to be Kevlar?. Since it is abrasion resistant fitting it in the crush areas will protect your skin when “sliding” on the tarmac. In practice – the jeans fabric wears down very quick and the Kevlar? layer underneath protects your skin from injury.
Q: Why don’t you use a jeans with Kevlar? thread inside?
A: We did lot of drag test with different jeans textiles containing Kevlar? thread knitted in between the jeans cotton. Result: the usage of 100% Kevlar? fabric for lining conviced us more in terms of abrasion resistance and the final safety.
