    Environmental effects of Kevlar are not clear or easily accessible to investigate. However, kevlar is a great alternative to leather materials, which is the material that kevlar often replaces, specifically for motorcycling.

    “Like all good things, Kevlar also has a few disadvantages. The fibers themselves absorb moisture, so Kevlar composites are more sensitive to the environment than glass or graphite composites. Although tensile strength and modulus are high, compressive properties are relatively poor. Finally, Kevlar is also very difficult to cut. You will need special scissors for cutting dry fabric or prepreg, and special drill bits for drilling cured laminates. Cutting of cured laminates without fraying is very difficult.”
