- Braided Cord made of 100% Black Kevlar Yarn, designed by EMMA KITES in response to increasing demand by users for better adaption to outdoors.
- EMMA KITES Black Kevlar Cords are built in braided constructions. In comparison to twisted lines, braided cords better resist end raveling, possess stronger strength and nicer hand touching. Taking the hand crafts and splicing needs into consideration, Kevlar cords of 550lb~1050lb (2.1mm~2.6mm) are 8 strands or 12 strands single hollow braids for you to make whoopie, loopie slings, continuous loop, etc.
- Inherently Flame Resistant, withstanding extreme temperatures up to 800 °F / 427 °C! To build shock lines, parachute systems for model rockets, or replace/upgrade wicks of torches/lamp, Kevlar cords are the unbeatable choice for you to fulfill flame-resistant demands and for applications in high temperatures.
- Reliable Survival Cord in the wild! Highly abrasion/friction resistant, Kevlar cord is used as highly efficient cords friction saw to help escape from plastic zip ties, ropes or tapes, and cut through various materials including woods, plastic tubes, nylon, polyesters to complete projects. In the binding, fastening, and wrapping jobs, Kevlar line/cord largely reduces risks of unexpected snaps, providing assured protection especially when in direct contact with sharp edges.
- High tensile strength cordages in lightweight, 10X greater than steel on an equal weight basis. Wound on compact rolls that are small enough to carry on person, and offer easy and fast deployment when you need it. Multi-use tool for your daily life, a must carry-on gear in your EDC kit. Applications are not limited to kites, tent guylines, bear bagging, repairing, fishing assist line, speargun shooting, snare wires, trip lines. Tensile strengths are tested in accordance with ISO 2307 by SGS
One of the best advantages of Kevlar line. It helps avoid many unexpected string snaps which happen a lot in binding, fastening objects or uses near sharp edges. In addition to "resistance" properties, Kevlar line is also highly resistant to abrasion, to chemicals (especially acids, and alkalis.)
Flame Resistant-Capable to Work at High Temperaturel
Kevlar doesn't melt and only decomposes at relatively high temperature, which makes it the common and popular material in firefighter PPE equipment.
Toughness - Yields High Strength in Small Size
High tensile strength cordages in lightweight, 10X greater than steel on an equal weight basis. A roll of 100ft 700lb black kevlar only weighs 3.38Oz, light and compact to carry on person in the wild.
Low Stretch, Least Creep
Stretch annoys much in applications like stringing hammocks, kite flying control, especially in control of stunt kite or traction kite. Kevlar cords have extremely low stretch and don't create creep even after long time loading.
Material: 100% Black Kevlar Yarn. Black into the fiber, not dyed.
Construction: Braid. The multi-strands interweaving process makes the Kevlar cord much more durable and able to resist raveling.
Decomposition Temperature: 800~900 °F / 427~482 °C. Kevlar doesn't melt like nylon or polyester. It decomposes at high temperatures.
Approximately ±2~3% deviation exists in measurement.
Packaging: On Spool
Safe Working Load Limit: 20% of the tensile strength, for the longevity of the cord and safe uses

- Kite String, Kite Fixing / Dragging Line for Giant Kites, Show Kites, Kitesurfing
- Camping: Tarp ridge lines / tent guylines / bear bagging / Ultralight backpacking, wrapping up tools used near heat source
- Survival gear, emergency / repair cord
- Climbing / Rigging / Arborist accessories
- Fishing accessory line / Speargun Shooting Line
How to seal the end?
Kevlar doesn't melt and self-sealed like nylon or polyester.
After cutting, use a tape to seal the end or simply tie a knot.
NOT JUST YELLOW!
Black in molecular level, black into each fiber!
Black kevlar yarn is developed by Dupont in respond to increasing demand by users for better adaption to outdoor environment.
Wound on compact rolls that are small enough to carry on person, and offer easy and fast deployment when you need it. Multi-use tool for your daily life, a must carry-on gear in your EDC kit.
Tensile Strength & Working Load Limit
Working Load Limit (WLL) = 20% of Tensile Strength, for the longevity of the cord and safe uses
Also known as the labeled strength, is the average strength at which the new and unused cord would break when tested in laboratory condition in accordance with Cordage Institute Standard Test Methods. The load, applied in parallel to the cord, slowly increases until the cord breaks.
Working Load Limit (WLL)
In the real world of practical uses, there are various factors that would impact or reduce the strength of any rope/cord, including knots in the rope, abrasion, humidity, UV, former use and care, etc. To assure safe uses, it's indispensable to adopt a safety margin in the cord/rope strength, which leads to Working Load Limit (WLL).
The Working Load Limit (WLL) is determined by dividing the tensile strength by a safety factor. To assure the longevity of the cord and maintain a comfortable margin for safe uses, a 5:1 safety factor (20% of the tensile strength) is adopted and recommended for emma kites Kevlar cord for general applications.
