Kevlar is a high tensile strength and high modulus composite fabric that is great for canoes, kayaks, and racing shells where maximum strength and minimal weight are critical. Impact tear and penetration resistance is far superior to fiberglass. 9 oz, 58" wide. Twill weave kevlar cloth drapes around corners easier than regular kevlar cloth, and twill weave also wets out better than plain weave kevlar. Twill weave is a basic pattern discernible by a diagonal rib, or twill line. Each end floats over at least two or more consecutive picks enabling a greater number of yarns per unit area than a plain weave, while losing little fabric stability. This type of fabric looks different on one side than on the other. The fabric is .024 in thick.

How do I cut this 9 oz. material? My Kevlar shears will cut lighter material but they don't cut this stuff.
Best way I found is to put painters tape on the cloth, then cut it. It works with tape on one side, but best on both sides. I cut it with normal shears.Chuck
I used tin snips
I have a pair of Clauss shears with the #18425 on them.They cut it great. So far they still appear to be like new after cutting 10 or 20 feet of the stuff.they have tiny grooves in the blades that make the difference.
Is this material cut resistant from metal, fiberglass or wood that has been broken and distorted?
Thank you Dan: If the edges are sealed, and formed into a shape will the material stay together or open up? John C.
This kevlar is very cut resistant.A perfect sharp edge rubbing on it over a long period of time will cut anything.If you have this material when you go to cut it with normal scissors & fail you will see how tough it is.Get a good pair of scissors that will cut kevlar. Clauss has some good ones.
Thank you Patrick F: Can Twill Weave be obtained at a width of 24" to 70"? Is this your most cut resistance Fabric?
I will stay in touch.
I would need more information to be exact, but let me see if this answers your question. In order to cut this material effectively before it has been soaked with resin you need to put masking or painters tape (preferably on both sides), then cut it. If you try to cut it without doing this using scissors or a knife, it is very resistant to cutting. Once it has resin and dried on say a board, it can be cut with a circular saw.
It's meant to be set in epoxy - very cut resistant.. but it'll fall apart on its own.
I need to replace a seat in a patio chair.Can I use this fabric for that? The original fabric is Kevlar.
I used this product to build an arrow brake.Wit the cost of arrows, straw backstops are not enough to keep them from getting damaged. Should work fine with with epoxy or some good stitching.
Dody....You can try. But the type of weave that I received probably would be difficult to keep as a finished lookingseat. As you know Kevlar is quite slippery and I feel that the weave would have to be stabilized with some sort of resin (epox?) to keep the individual fibers from fraying and opening up. ....Bill
i want to make a 4 yard/5 yard single piece. Can you do this? or do i have to attach it together myself?
We sell this 58 in wide, and you can specify the length in yards that you would like. We don't "attach" or make anything.
can you sell by the half yard ?.For instance I may need only Seven yards]7] but I would like to be sure and order a extra half yard [1/2] for the boat That I am going to build. Thank you, James Amann
This is only sold per yard. You will need to order an extra yard.
Works great for composite kayak's
This Aramid product worked perfect in reinforcing the inner walls the kayak im currently constructing. There was no deformation or separation in the material after molding and was excellent at really wetting all the way through the material. Make sure to clear a large workspace when using this product with resin, it seems to find its way all over the place.
Excellent material for canoe
I used this fabric to make a kevlar canoe. The fabric works really well. Don't pull to hard on the fabric when laying up because the twill weave will pull apart.We will be making a couple more canoes and we will be ordering this fabric from JTD again.
