Predominantly used for the exterior seam on composite kayaks and canoes, the 25mm braid is woven from a 1210 dtex black aramid yarn, directly equivalent to Kevlar (the Dupont brand name for aramid fibre). The fibre is woven in such a way that the braid is 'flat', i.e. it is not a tube/sleeve but instead resembles a densely woven tape. The fibre orientation of the tape is +/- 45 degrees which means that the braid is ideally suited to handling torsional loads, affords excellent conformity (drape) without buckling the fibres and resists crack propagation.

Aramid flat braid is used as a very high strength wear resistant tape for joining or protecting joins in composite panels, most commonly around the seam of performance kayaks and canoes.

The black 25mm braid is ideal for repairing or replacing old/damaged seam tape found on the high wear areas such as the nose and tail of a kayak or canoe. Alternatively, our 17mm Black Aramid Flat Braid is ideal for more discrete reinforcement and adding a protective edge to composite paddles.

The braid should be wet-out with resin such as our EL2 Laminating Epoxy or ER1 Rapid Repair Epoxy and if required, over-coated with another coat of resin to create tough, durable protection to more vulnerable/high wear areas.

Aramid flat braid is compatible with all conventional resin systems including polyester, vinylester and epoxy resin. Most commonly, the braid is applied to the outside seam of canoes and kayaks to completely overlap the join between the upper and lower hull mouldings. The braid is then simply wet-out with epoxy resin and then once cured, over-painted once more with another coat of epoxy resin to create an extremely tough, durable and protective join.

How to Buy

This 25mm flat aramid braid is sold by the linear metre (with the braid at its natural 45° orientation) in a continuous length. For example; if you purchase a quantity of '5' you will receive a continuous length of braid 5m long. There is no minimum order quantity but several volume discounts are available for larger quantities.

Further Information

The lightweight flat braid on this page has a nominal width of 25mm although, in common with all braids, elongating or shortening the braid will change its width ranging from 60mm when bunched to 19mm when pulled taught.

For wet-lay lamination you will use a bit more resin than the weight of the fabric. A typical fibre resin ratio for Aramid based fabrics is 45/55. For example, with a 300gsm cloth, for 1 square metre you will have 300g of fabric and thus will need 367g of resin to wet it out, plus a small amount of wastage for the brush and mixing pot.

No. Our Kevlar Fabric is only available in the classic Kevlar yellow.

We do not currently stock any hybrid pre-pregs either as carbon-aramid mix or pure aramid

Aramid and Diolen laminates can be drilled into using a HSS drill bit designed for drilling steel. Start with a pilot hole and work up the diameter until the desired hole size is achieved. Any aramid/diolen fluff can be cut off with a sharp Stanley blade or scalpel.
