Silver Aluminized Fiberglass Fabric/Cloth 50" 9.14oz 2x2 Twill. 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 50", the yarn used is comparable in size and appearance to a carbon fiber 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 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.

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. Samples of our fabrics can be purchased by Clicking this Link.

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.
