This material is a softer version of our normal silver aluminized fabric. The material is often referred to as silver carbon fiber, although it is not actual carbon fiber, as all carbon fiber is black. This fabric is nearly identical to Hexcel Texalium however due to the U.S. plant shutdown we have this material manufactured elsewhere to keep costs reasonable while allowing us to coat nearly any fabric style with this coating. Because we are more involved in the manufacturing process we can ensure a more uniform quality. This fabric has a width of 40″, the yarn used is comparable in size and appearance to a carbon fiber tow size of 3k and is woven in a 2×2 twill weave. This is the most widely used pattern in the automotive industry. This material was woven by reputable weavers across the US, and their long lasting presence in the composite industry will ensure you receive a quality material.
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.
