Kevlar Flat Braid is a braid made from genuine Kevlar 49 fibre woven in such a way that the braid is 'flat', i.e. it is not a tube/sleeve but instead resembles a densely woven tape.

Kevlar Flat Braid is used as a very high strength tape for joining composite panels or protecting joins in composite panels, most commonly around the seam of kayaks, canoes and other small boats.
Kevlar Flat Braid is compatible with all conventional resin systems including polyester, vinylester and epoxy resin.

Kevlar Flat Braid can be put to excellent use in a wide range of composite and none-composite applications including:
