Carbon Fiber/Blue Kevlar Fabric/Cloth 50" 3k 5.5oz 2x2 Twill with Web-Lock Stabilization. The material is a hybrid of carbon fiber and Kevlar. This fabric has a width of 50", tow size of 3k and is woven in a 2x2 twill weave. This is the most widely used pattern in the automotive industry. This material has been Stabilized using our EXCLUSIVE Web-Lock Stabilization Technology.

Web Lock Logo

Web-Lock is a fabric stabilization process that is achieved by applying high heat and pressure to lock every filament of fabric together, ensuring perfect cosmetic and structural symmetry. Currently, this process is ONLY offered by Composite Envisions. You may have seen or tried stabilized fabrics in the past, but we've found that these existing products can often be too stiff to work with, require large volume orders with high costs, or simply aren't available in the fabric or time frame needed. All these reasons lead us to one solution - Web-Lock. Web-Lock is the material that we believe solves all the current problems and exceeds the finished fabric performance on all levels. Web-Lock will help you improve your ease of manufacturing, saving you time and money.

The side that has the Web-Lock on it will not make a good finish for your parts as you will still be able to see the stabilizer in a finished part. When using make sure to have the stabilized side face the non cosmetic side of your part. If you have a part that requires to have a perfect finish on both side we would recommend using two layers of this material and face the stabilized sides together. 

Advantages of Web-Lock

 Web-Lock is applied at Composite Envisions, allowing flexibility of coating options. Currently, Web-Lock has been applied to Carbon Fiber, Kevlar, Fiberglass and will be available on other composite fibers.

 Low MOQ's. Can be applied to smaller runs of fabric, up to full 100+ yd rolls.

 Reduce employee training for the time it takes to make quality composites.

 Reduce waste as a result of less damaged cloth.

 Standard heat range is 225°F/107°C. Coatings can range from 194°F/90°C to 392°F/200°C (only capable now of doing up to 248F/120C material)

 Current version only adds .175oz/6gsm of weight to the fabric for little interference. (weights available from 4-15gsm to change performance characteristics)

 No release liner required between layers of material; reduces waste, lowers cost and makes material easier to use.

 Compatible with most resin systems on the market, including polyester, vinylester and epoxy resin.

 Can be applied to various widths ranging from narrow tapes to 50" wide.

 Prevents fabric weave from shifting but stretches to allow the fabric to stay conformable.

 Keeps fiber coverage even to avoid resin rich areas and failure points.

 Produced in the USA. Our goal is to make Web-Lock the new standard for high-end composite fabrications meet your supply needs while exceeding your expectations.

To harden the raw fabric into a usable form, you will need the appropriate resin or epoxy for your project. For the colored materials, we suggest one of our resins which cure clear.

Product Description

Carbon Fiber / Aramid / Kevlar Hybrid fabrics.

This carbon fiber and aramid hybrid fabric combines the properties of both highly advanced fiber reinforcements. The carbon tow provides a very high level of strength and stiffness, while the aramid provides very good impact/abrasion/fracture resistance to the laminate layup. The aramid that is used in our cloth featuring colored aramid is DuPont Kevlar® while the natural or yellow aramid fabrics use either DuPont Kevlar or Lumat brand aramid. These fabrics are not just amazing looking cloths but combined with their unique weave patterns, they are ideal for usage in a wide variety of different applications. Many high-performance, high-impact applications can benefit from these materials such as boat building, automotive, military, racing, sporting goods and high strength paneling, just to name a few.

This material is suitable for just about any process that you would like to use. Like a simple wet-layup, or more advanced processes like vacuum infusion, vacuum bagging or RTM manufacturing processes. In addition to dry cloth, we are able to have this turned into prepreg for the advanced composite customer. This material is also highly sought after for parts that are being wrapped/skinned for just a single surface layer when trying to gain that cool composite look with an added reinforcement layer and not spending the time or money into creating tools for finished parts.

When using this material as a reinforcement in a part, you will want to use several layers of this fabric in each part. We also recommend rotating the composite layers to give the parts the same attributes in all directions. Non-structural components like body panels and covers will typically require only 1 or two layers of this cloth when combining this with other layers of reinforcement like standard carbon fiber or fiberglass fabrics.

How we sell

This roll is 50" (127cm) wide and the fabric is sold by the linear yard. The unit price displayed is for 1 linear yard, all volume discounts will be automatically applied when selecting larger quantities of fabric when added to your shopping cart, as indicated in the table above with quantity discount ranges for units purchased.

Please purchase the number of linear yards that you require. When purchasing multiple yards of the same fabric you will receive one continuous length of that material. We carefully take that material and roll it onto a cardboard core and wrap over with clear plastic or Kraft paper, making sure to keep the fabric in its first quality condition. We pride ourselves as having one of the best material handing crews possible. We have most of our material available for purchase in sample swatch books per fabric category.

The resin consumption provided is for the approximate amount of resin by weight, contained in the final part after processing by vacuum infusion. This does not account for the resin used in the flow lines and consumables such as flow media or breather cloth. Wet-layup by hand will also have a higher resin consumption in the final part and is dependent upon users techniques. Vacuum bagging a wet layup will improve the resin content. Too much resin will cause a weaker part, NOT stronger. Average rule of thumb is around 45% (+/- a couple percent). To calculate actual resin % in your part a burn test is used. For example you have a part weighing 100 grams, you would burn off the resin which would leave the fiber behind. You should have 55 grams of fiber left when your process is working correctly. Due to the variables in processing it is hard to give an accurate amount of resin needed to purchase for making your part. However you will have waste no matter what method is used. A suggested ratio is about 1-1.5lbs of resin per lb of fabric purchased.
