Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Fiber (UHMWPE), Kevlar, Aramid are textiles used to make protective equipment for military, police, and security personnel. They have high strength, low weight, low elongation at break, heat resistance, and chemical resistance.
UHMWPE, Kevlar and Aramid Fibres are very suitable for laser cutting which produces consistent laser processed edges and minimal heat affected zones.
Laser cutting vaporizes the material along the cut path, leaving a clean and sealed edge. The non-contact nature of laser processing allows applications to be processed with fine geometry which might be difficult to achieve with traditional mechanical methods. Technology developed by Golden Laser makes it simple to consistently and repeatedly process these materials to a high degree of dimensional accuracy because the non-contact nature of laser processing eliminates material deformation during processing.
Laser cutting also allows for much greater design freedom for your parts with the ability to cut intricate, complex patterns of virtually any size.
