Product Description This lightweight Kevlar...
This lightweight Kevlar aramid felt offers the very best slash and rip protection of all our protective Kevlar fabrics but, owing to its felt construction it easily attracts and traps water and dirt and so is not suitable for use as an exposed outer layer. The fabric would also not be comfortable to wear against the skin.
Warning: Last items in stock!
The recommended application for this Kevlar felt would be either for non-garment use such as on its own as a protective blanket (to protect someone or something from sparks or heat for example) or in conjunction with a coated fabric such as Supported Kevlar Technical Textile to make a highly protective Kevlar patch suitable for use on the outside of garments such as trousers/pants and jackets. A typical example would be protection from flags and ski poles on the legs of ski-pants.
Kevlar® is VERY difficult to cut using normal scissors and this Kevlar felt is one of the hardest of all our fabrics to cut in this way.
To cut this fabric we would strongly suggest a good pair of Kevlar Shears which will make light work of the task and leave a tidy edge on the fabric.
The Kevlar® fabric shown on this page weighs 175g/sqm. We can supply the fabric in smaller cut pieces (30cm x 30cm or 30cm x 150cm) which are perfect for making small patches or adding protection to smaller garments such as gloves. For larger projects we can also supply the fabric directly off the 150cm wide roll by the linear metre. Orders for multiple metres will be shipped in one continuous roll, not multiple individual square metres.
When buying fabric by the metre the width of the roll is 150cm (1.5m / 59").
A small swatch sample of the fabric can be purchased by clicking here.
