Aramid Tissue is a lightweight, advanced non-woven aramid fiber veil incorporating 100% KEVLAR® fibers, approximately 1" in length, bonded together in a random fiber matrix. The non-woven construction allows a resin-rich surface that increases chemical stability and reduces the risk of micro-cracks forming in the composite surface. It has excellent formability, drape and wets out evenly.
Aramid Tissue can be used to increase impact resistance and toughness. It is not recommended for standalone use as a surface finishing material, since it has a tendency to fuzz when the epoxy is applied with a brush. We recommend bonding .58 oz. or .73 oz. fiberglass over the tissue to obtain a very stiff and durable surface finish. It is compatible with polyester, vinyl-ester and epoxy resins and is suitable for use in wet layup, vacuum bagging and resin infusion manufacturing.
