KEVLAR®

KEVLAR® fabrics can be used with, or as a great alternative to carbon fiber or fiberglass. Composites grade KEVLAR® is lightweight, impact resistant, abrasion resistant, heat resistant, and has great strength properties for the most demanding applications.

Fibre Glast only carries KEVLAR® 49 fabrics. These fabrics are developed specifically for composite reinforcement. They can be used with Epoxy, Vinyl Ester, or Polyester Resins to create a rigid laminate. Common applications for KEVLAR® 49 fabrics include: kayaks, canoes, high-speed boats, aircraft fuselage panels, pressure vessels, sporting equipment, wind turbines and much more.

KEVLAR® Twill Weave Fabric
5.0 oz/sq yd, 50" Wide, 0.011" Thick, 2x2 KEVLAR® Twill Fabric


This KEVLAR® fabric is ideal for impact-resistant applications that call for excellent specific tensile strength and minimum weight. The colorful, twill pattern makes for improved drapability and delivers impressive cosmetics where show-through is a factor. Common applications include kayaks, canoes, boats, and sporting goods equipment.

The 2x2 Twill is meant to be used with a resin system, like our System #2000 epoxy.

Before starting your project with this KEVLAR® fabric, consider:
  • Once cut, twill fabrics are prone to unraveling due to the looser weave. Prior to cutting, be sure to use our #1735-A Perfect Line Tape, or Dritz Fray Check, #1713-A.
  • KEVLAR® is difficult to cut, sand, and machine. Consider a dedicated pair of serrated scissors, like our #1731-A.
  • Our KEVLAR® is not meant to be sewn.
  • Unused KEVLAR® should be stored away from UV light.


Fibre Glast is committed to ensuring that every roll of this fabric we handle is First Quality and manufactured to the highest standards, so that you can expect the same properties and handling characteristics every time you order.

KEVLAR® Fabric is made with genuine DuPont™ KEVLAR® fiber. DuPont™ and KEVLAR® are registered trademarks of E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company and are used with permission. 
KEVLAR® 4HS Weave Fabric
5 oz/sq yd, 50" Wide, 0.012" Thick, 17 x 17 4HS Weave


KEVLAR® in 4HS is often preferred for maximum conformability. 4HS construction means that one filling thread (width) floats over 3 warp (length) threads resulting in a fabric that looks different on each side and features conisiderable conformability and drape. Along with being highly impact resistant, this satin weave is most often selected for aerospace and structural designs. Generally, KEVLAR® is not suited for applications that call for compressive strength. It is meant to be used with a resin, like our System #2000 epoxy.

Before starting your project with KEVLAR®, consider:
  • To produce a symmetrical laminate with a satin weave, you must invert alternating plies.
  • KEVLAR® is difficult to cut, sand, and machine. Consider a dedicated pair of serrated scissors, like our #1731-A.
  • Our KEVLAR® is not meant to be sewn.
  • Unused KEVLAR® should be stored away from UV light.

KEVLAR® Plain Weave Fabric
5.0 oz/sq yd, 50" Wide, 0.011" Thick, KEVLAR® Plain Weave Fabric


KEVLAR® in plain weave form is the most popular KEVLAR® in composites. Although it is slightly stiff for highly contoured molds, it offers uniform properties, maximum stability, and simple surfacing characteristics. Its good stiffness, light weight, and high abrasion resistance make it a great selection for applications that include kayaks, canoes, high-speed boats, aircraft fuselage panels, pressure vessels, sporting equipment, wind turbines, and much more. Generally, though, KEVLAR® is not suited for applications that call for compressive strength. It is meant to be used with a resin system, like our System #2000 epoxy.

Before starting your project with this KEVLAR® fabric, consider:
  • KEVLAR® is difficult to cut, sand, and machine. Consider a dedicated pair of serrated scissors, like our #1731-A.
  • Our KEVLAR® is not meant to be sewn.
  • Unused KEVLAR® should be stored away from UV light.

KEVLAR® / Carbon Hybrid (Red)
5.4 oz/sq yd, 50" Wide, 0.012" Thick, 2x2 Twill Weave


Get the best of both worlds with this KEVLAR® and carbon hybrid. By combining the properties of both materials in each layer, this First Quality fabric delivers a high strength-to-weight ratio, high conformability, impact resistance, abrasion resistance, dimensional stability, and fatigue resistance.

3K Carbon creates the warp and 1420 Denier KEVLAR® is dyed red and used in the fill direction, making for easy drape and impressive cosmetics. Use as a single layer for cosmetics or back with another layer in the cross direction for a maximum balance of properties.

This hybrid is compatible with polyester and vinyl ester, but use with an epoxy resin system to maximize the strength properties of the carbon fiber. Store any unused fabric away from UV light.

KEVLAR® Veil
0.25 oz, 35.5" Wide, 0.08 mm Thick


KEVLAR® veil is a lightweight, non-woven material that helps block print-through while still offering abrasion and impact resistance. Though commonly used in KEVLAR® laminates, it can also be paired with carbon fiber or fiberglass to provide the benefits of KEVLAR® while adding minimal weight and thickness.

KEVLAR® Veil can also be used as an interlaminor bond or bond material for sandwich core. It is meant to be used with a resin, like our System #2000 epoxy.

Before starting your project with KEVLAR®, consider:
  • KEVLAR® is difficult to cut, sand, and machine. Consider a dedicated pair of serrated scissors, like our #1731-A.
  • Our KEVLAR® is not meant to be sewn.
  • Unused KEVLAR® should be stored away from UV light.

KEVLAR® Tape
5 oz/sq yd, Various Widths, 0.0100" Thick, 17x17 Plain Weave


KEVLAR® tape is ideal for selective reinforcement of KEVLAR®, fiberglass, or carbon laminations and repairs. Its plain weave pattern matches our #2469 fabric and offers uniform strength and drapability for wrapping or laying in strips, particularly for applications of unique shape. They are ideally suited for marine and sporting goods applications. KEVLAR®, generally, is not suitable for applications that call for compressive strength.

KEVLAR® tape is called tape only for appearance and width—it is not adhesive backed. It is made to be used with a resin, like epoxy or vinyl ester. Finished edges make for ease in handling and keep them from unraveling. They make a great alternative to cutting strips from a larger piece of fabric.

Before starting your project with KEVLAR®, consider:
  • KEVLAR® is difficult to cut, sand, and machine. Consider a dedicated pair of serrated scissors, like our #1731-A.
  • Our KEVLAR® is not meant to be sewn.
  • Unused KEVLAR® should be stored away from UV light.

2
2", 9.9 oz/sqyd, 0.018" thick


These KEVLAR® sleeves are highly impact and abrasion resistant. They can be slid over a prepared mandrel or cylinder to create straight or tapered tubing. In addition, braided sleeves will completely conform to the shape of products with changing geometries like prosthetics and hockey sticks, improving overall performance, minimizing weight, and maximizing the ultimate tensile strength of carbon.

The sleeves can be increased from their base diameter up to 30% and decreased up to 70%. This means that our 2" sleeve can be used in a single application ranging from 0.6" to 2.6" in diameter.

When inflated, braided reinforcement works much like a shark's body, orienting itself to the direction of force. This actually strengthens its outer skin, enabling it to withstand pressure and carry load, and to tolerate damage and fatigue. If a puncture does occur, the sleeve provides a slow, controlled failure, rather than a more damaging and potentially dangerous blowup.

Laying up sleeves is predictable, repeatable, and suitable for precise manufacture of composite parts. Braided sleeves are extremely resistant to cracks between layers, reducing the possibility of delaminating and increasing the strength of the product.
