Dynel Fabric / Cloth

Dynel is a popular laminate fabric used for museum-quality restoration work on wooden boats. It's strong and yet supple like a true woven fabric, with no fibers to irritate your skin.

Dynel fabric has very high abrasion resistance but swells in the resin such that it works better if vacuum bagged or pressure molded. The most common uses of dynel are for wear patches on boats, edgings on paddles, and the like. It has also been used as a deck covering on wooden sailboats. It seems to be a good choice anywhere that abrasion is a major issue. This Dynel Fabric retains a milky appearance when saturated rather than turning clear in the resin like fiberglass.

            I ordered 3 yds of Dynel and was sent one. That is going to cost me 3-4 days because I recieved the wrong material.

              Comments about Jamestown Distributors Dynel Fabric / Cloth:

              i build my own kayaks and use dynel fabric to make rub strips to protect the bow and stern. some places will sell you a 'rub-strip kit'.....but in the end, it is just several pieces of dynel cloth bias cut two inches wide by 18 to 24 inches in length.

              bought a yard of the dynel cloth from jamestown and cut my own strips. easy to do with a sharp pair of scissors. plenty of material to do a dozen kayaks for the cost of one 'rub-strip kit' (which will do only one kayak with no material to spare).

                Comments about Jamestown Distributors Dynel Fabric / Cloth:

                when you apply epoxy to Dynel the cloth will swell or double in thickness which pronounces the weave. DO NOT SAND SMOOTH, best way to fill the weave is to mix epoxy and a easy sanded filler and squeegee on, then epoxy over once its smooth. Wont beat it for bottoms that are beached a lot or skinny water boats
