  • Carbon Fiber should be the choice material for boats ...

    Dec 02, 2014· Yes, Revenge has been building later boats out of Carbon Fiber and planned on building a 58' SF out of it until Jon Sandowski's demise. I believe they did build some 35' ish center consoles out of carbon fiber. He did build 3-57' SF in the late 80's early 90's out of I believe Kevlar.

  • Carbon & Kevlar fiber Mechanical Properties - Eng-Tips Forums

    Nov 16, 2011· The structural behaviour of fiber composite parts is usually more complicated, with, for instance, higher tensile properties than compressive ones (very much so in the case of Kevlar). Common fiber/polymer composites all have some increase in weight or cost efficiency vs. common metals, or they would generally not be used (occasionally some ...

  • Fibre vs Carbon Fibre vs Kevlar | Halo Costume and Prop ...

    Apr 20, 2021· Carbon fiber has a very high tensile strength for it's weight.. But for that strength you will pay out the nose. There is a global shortfall in supply for carbon fiber due to the increased demand from the aviation industry (Boeing's 787 is almost all carbon fiber). Kevlar's principal advantage is its abrasion and impact resistance.

  • G-10, Carbon Fiber & Carbon/Kevlar durability ...

    May 13, 2009· What about Carbon Fiber? Can Carbon Fiber compare to Micarta or G-10 as far as strength and durability go? Another question is that I have seen Carbon Fiber mixed with Kevlar for handle slabs as well and I would be interested in knowing how this new material (Carbon/Kevlar) compares to traditional Micarta and G-10. Thanks in advance for any input.

  • Carbon Fiber vs. Kevlar clutch plates, which is ... - XL FORUM

    Jan 16, 2013· I've found the kevlar plates hold more torque than the carbon fibers. I know the advertising says the carbon fiber has a higher coefficient of friction, but I had a lot of trouble with the carbon fiber plates letting go when I'd get into the nitrous. I could get the kevlar's to let go, too, but it took more juice.

  • Fiberglass Vs. Carbon Fiber/Kevlar- Mesh - RC Groups

    Jun 10, 2019· Due to the density of carbon fiber he would have to use 5.2 ounce carbon fiber to make it the same weight. Well 5.2 ounce carbon doesn't exist. In fact, the next weight down that is somewhat available is 3.5 - 4 ounce 1K carbon fiber ($100 per yard). This carbon fuse with 4 oz carbon would be rather brittle (low strain) compared to the glass fuse.

  • G10 vs. Carbon Fiber | BladeForums.com

    Jul 25, 2008· Impact resistance is a resin controlled characteristic. Since the resins in both G10 and carbon fiber vary from mfg to mfg, you really cannot say that there is a difference between G10 and carbon fiber. Deterioration is also a function of the resin, not the fiber reinforcement, so again you really cannot differentiate between G10 and carbon fiber.

  • Carbon fiber bulletproof | Physics Forums

    Sep 23, 2016· Kevlar can absorb a lot of energy when the fibers stretching plastically and don't return to their original length afterwards. With carbon fiber, the strain energy only goes into elastic deformation, which is small compared with the plastic deformation of kevlar, but the energy is released again as the fibers goes back their original shape.

    Jul 15, 2020· So Carbon would take most of the load and fail quite early, as only 50% is carbon. The material has its best use for ship bows or kayaks, where you have a short impact and then again normal load. Carbon would break, and the Kevlar keeps integrity of the hull (watertight).

  • Carbon fiber vs Glass Fiber - RC Groups

    Dec 15, 2019· The specific density of Kevlar is 1.44 grams/cc while the density of glass is 2.55 g/cc. A 1.7 ounce Kevlar contains a higher volume of fiber than a 1.7 ounce glass. Those extra fibers require more resin to have the same saturation level as 1.7 ounce glass. The 1.7 ounce Kevlar will be thicker than the 1.7 ounce glass.

  • Carbon Fiber-Kevlar Question | Boat Design Net

    Nov 08, 2017· Some canoe/kayak builders use a hybrid layup schedule with carbon fiber on the outside and Kevlar backing it up, so to speak, on the inside. This is done, as I understand it, to increase the impact (point load) resistance of the shell.

If the energy (i.e. the internal stress) is too high, carbon fiber would just shatter as the bullet punched a hole through it.

    Aug 15, 2012· Re: carbon fiber vs kevlar? Kevlar has a greater elongation then carbon, so will give a less stiff structure. Less stiff also means less brittle. Pure Kevlar is a better choice it the structure is going to get banged up a lot, Kevlar has a much higher sheer strength, so it is much more resistant to abrasion.
