Kevlar yarns.
Woven Kevlar.

"Special shears are required to cut Kevlar fabrics and tapes. These shears are designed to hold the fabric securely as the cutting blade does its job. If you look at these shear blades closely, you'll notice that there are serrations on the 'holding' edge and a sharp edge on the cutter. These shears are a specialty item and are therefore somewhat expensive, but they are well worth the price in reduced aggravation and improved results. Don't try to cut Kevlar without them." Composite Materials Handbook - M.M. Schwartz

“Composites can be difficult to cut, even when uncured. Some considerations that should be addressed include the possibility of temperature control so that the prepreg materials do not prematurely cure, the need to clean the cutting tools, handling issues, clean room considerations, and precision cutting at particular angles for maximum mechanical performance in the finished part. When cutting aramid fibers, some special problems are encountered because of the toughness of the material. Hence, test cuts should be performed before a new cutter system is purchased. "Cutting Composites" - A. Brent Strong, Brigham Young University

If you are cutting composites, glass fibers or Kevlar, note that mineral fibers are very abrasive and tend to wear blade edges at a different angle than Kevlar does. While the same pair of scissors or shears used to cut fiberglass may be used to cut graphite (carbon) fibers, avoid using them to cut Kevlar. 

Keep Blades Clean. When finished cutting, always clean residual fibers from blades. Acetone is recommended for dissolving and removing prepreg resins, urethane, adhesives, epoxies etc.

Replacing solid metal handles with synthetic material results in shears that weigh considerably less. Lighter weight shears require less pressure to use. The fatigue, muscle ache and risk of neuromuscular disease associated with repeated cutting tasks is substantially reduced. Blades on Fiskars lightweight shears are made to industrial grade standards. Blade integrity, hardness and edge life, is as good or better than traditional solid steel models, regardless of weight or gauge. 

Note the new Fiskars Softgrip® cushion handle and Softouch® ergonomic models.

Select Fiskars to accomplish cutting tasks more easily, accurately and efficiently, with less effort and greater safety. All models have adjustable pivot screws. FISKARS fatigue reducing shears cut as well or better than solid steel models that weigh twice as much.
