Kermel® is a naturally non-flammable fibre, classified in the meta-aramid family. Non-flammability is a permanent characteristic thanks to the chemical structure including a high proportion of aromatic structures and combined double bonds. Kermel® is a smooth-surfaced fibre with an almost circular cross-section. This shape, as well as its modulus, makes it comfortable and very pleasant to the touch. The heat protective fibre has a very high resistance to abrasion and a thermal conductivity twice as low as any other aramid fibre. It also has an excellent resistance to chemicals.
