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.
