Kevlar® is tough, lightweight material, and can bend further than any other fiber, making it ideal for 3D printing.
What is Kevlar material?
Kevlar is a synthetic fiber developed and produced by DuPont. Known for its light weight and toughness, it is traditionally used in products such as tires, sails, rope, and protective equipment. Kevlar is an excellent material for 3D printing.
How strong is Kevlar?

When to 3D print with Kevlar material?
Kevlar is best utilized in parts that will take a beating. Its low density and high durability make it a great option for applications involving a lot of motion or interfacing with production parts.
- End effectors
- Soft jaws
- End use parts
Did you know?
- Kevlar is 8x more impact resistant than ABS while remaining 15-20% lighter than our other reinforcement fibers.
- In three-point bending, 3D printed Kevlar is 3x stronger than ABS and 6x stronger than nylon.
- 3D printed Kevlar is 12x more rigid than ABS and 30x more rigid than nylon.
