Micarta Collection

Micarta materials made from canvas, burlap, kevlar, and other fabrics.  We generally supply certain types of commercial micarta.

Kevlar-Nomex or Aluminum Honeycomb Hybrid Collections

Kevlar-Nomex is a honeycomb substrate utilized in the civilian and military aircraft manufacturing process, normally sandwiched between layers of carbon fiber. We fill the honeycomb with resin of various colors, resulting in a product similar to C-Tek (i.e. aluminum honeycomb, which we also carry). 

 

These products are made in color batches, with a limited number available from each batch as listed.
