    What is the Difference Between Carbon Fiber and Kevlar?
    0 What is the Difference Between Carbon Fiber and Kevlar?
    One big difference between Kevlar and carbon fiber is that Kevlar contains nitrogen atoms in its chemical composition whereas carbon fiber does not. Kevlar and carbon fiber are two forms of synthetic fiber and each material has high strength. Kevlar is primarily used in protective clothing and bullet resistant products while carbon fiber is more prolific in industries beyond the textile world such as boat building and aerospace manufacturing.
