Kevlar® 1/2″ Webbing has a 550 pound breaking strength and weighs 0.6 grams per foot. The weave on this webbing is extremely tight compared to other webbing. It has almost no stretch and absorbs very little water. This webbing is extremely resistant to friction and heat and starts to decompose at 800 degrees Fahrenheit and can handle temperatures of less than -320 degree Fahrenheit. Kevlar is affected by UV light and after 450 hours of direct sunlight it can turn brown and lose up to 50% of its breaking strength.
*Kevlar webbing is not recommended for a permanent hammock suspension as it is UV sensitive*
