Breaking Strength: 550Lb Diameter: 2.1mm Weight:2.3 Oz/100 Ft | 2.15 g/m Material: 100% Kevlar Yarn by Dupont Company Construction: 12-strands hollow braid Decomposition Temperature: 800~900 °F / 427~482 °C Kevlar doesn't melt like nylon or polyester. It decomposes at a high temperature. Packaging: On Spool Recommended safe working strength: 20% of its original strength. More types of strength available:
Toughness - Yields High Strength in Small Size Every Kevlar fiber is of high tensile strength. It weighs much less when yielding same strength. Construction of Braid Braiding, Multi-strands interweaving process, makes kevlar line much more durable and be able to resist raveling. Cut-Resistance 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.) Capability to Work at High-Temperature Kevlar doesn't melt and only decomposes at relatively high temperature, which also the reason that it's a common material in firefighter PPE equipment. 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 line has extremely low stretch, which means the long time loading will create the least creep on it.

Please note!!! Data of all cords' marked strength comes from a laboratory test. There are a wide variety of influential factors in practical use. For all kinds of cords, the safe working strength is around 20% of its original strength. How to seal the end? Kevlar doesn't melt and self-sealed like nylon or polyester. After cutting, use tape to seal the end or simply tie a knot.
