Carbon Fiber Orange Kevlar Plate .056"/1.4mm. This plate has a 2x2 Twill weave pattern, which is the most commonly used weave pattern in the automotive industry. Our plates are constructed using high quality materials from reputable manufacturers in the USA.
We use a crystal clear high strength epoxy resin in our plates to provide the clearest finish we can achieve. Other resin options available. These plates have a high gloss finish on the face side and a fine matte finish on the backside.
Our plates are also available with an all weather 3M 6035PC adhesive option. This adhesive covers the entire backside of the plate and has an easy to remove backing. Just peel the backing off, and you can adhere the plate just like a sticker. The 3M adhesive backing for this plate is an additional $3.00 per square foot and adds 0.005" to the thickness of the plate. If you would like 3M adhesive on your plate, please use the dropdown above to add it.
Color Disclaimer about Plates:
When Carbon Fiber/Kevlar Fabric is Vacuum Infused to make these plates, the color will darken up from the original color of the Kevlar fabric in dry form. The Blue Kevlar will turn to a Navy Blue color, the Red Kevlar will turn to a Burgundy color, the Orange Kevlar will turn to a Blood Orange color, and the yellow Kevlar (natural color) will turn to a Dijon Yellow color, once they are wet out and cured.
Plate sizes of 48"x72" and 48"x96" are available also but must be shipped by LTL Freight. Please contact us to purchase these plate sizes.

These plates are vacuum infused with a high quality/scratch resistant epoxy resin that is custom formulated for us here at Composite Envisions. Our plates are produced right here in our shop. Due to slight variances in material, we give these plates a range of +/- .005 inches in thickness. These plates are typically cut by waterjet. However, due to time constraints they may be saw cut. Therefore, these plates are given a dimensional tolerance of +/- .125 of an inch. All of our plates 1.5mm or thicker have a core made with no crimp carbon fiber along the 0/+45/-45/90 axis to ensure the most uniform layup along all axis. This will yield a plate that is structurally sound for most applications. We can adjust strengths in various axis if more strength is needed in one direction without increasing weight.
Our plates are NOT UV Protected. To ensure longevity of the plate, we highly recommend a clear coat with UV Protection be applied to the face of the plate for plates which will be exposed to sunlight.
Note: Lead times for standard plates listed on our site will range from 1-5 business days. We try to stock as many plates as we possibly can but with the limitless number of size, thickness and color combinations, sometimes it is not possible. If your order is time sensitive please call and check to confirm availability and the current approximate lead time for your order.
