- Twaron®: Manufactured by Teijin Aramid, uses include protective clothing, helmets, sails, brake pads, and turbo hoses.
- Nomex®: Again, produced by DuPont™, these fibers are most commonly associated with Nomex® hoods used by firefighters, race car drivers, and defense personnel to protect from harsh temperatures.
