Carbon Kevlar Rail tape
Want the best of both worlds? Well here's the surfboard rail tape for you! Taking the strength and stiffness of Carbon and combining the impact strength of Kevlar.
What is Carbon Fibre?
Carbon Fibre is stiff and strong material but remains very light. Replacing steel in many applications, it's is up to five times stronger and up to two thirds lighter. Although it is super strong it can be brittle and slightly hard to cut.
What is Kevlar?
Kevlar is simply a super-strong plastic. If that sounds unimpressive, remember that there are plastics—and there are plastics. This is a plastic strong enough to stop bullets and knives—often described as being "five times stronger than steel on an equal weight basis." Kevlar's amazing properties are partly due to its internal structure and partly due to the way it's made into fibers that are knitted tightly together. It's strong but relatively light and unlike most plastics it does not melt.
Although it has very high tensile (impact) strength, it has very poor compressive strength (resistance to squashing or squeezing). Very high abrasive resistance makes it hard to sand and cut (best under a layer of fiberglass)
Best used with epoxy resins
Roll length: 50M
