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 none 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.
Please Note: Web-Lock is not applied with a standard/default orientation. If you require a specific orientation of the Web-Lock to match existing/previously purchased Web-Lock fabrics please contact us so that we may apply the Web-Lock to the specifications desired.
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 248°F/120°C 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 meeting your supply needs while exceeding your expectations.
