175g Kevlar Protective Felt Fabric Pack (300 x 300mm)

Made 100% from genuine Dupont® Kevlar® fibre, this thin 175gsm Kevlar® protective felt material can be stitched into garments such as motorcycle clothing, luggage or equipment to add protection from a range of threats including knife slash, heat and road abrasion.

This lightweight non-woven felt is our thinnest form of Kevlar protection but therefore offers reduced protection compared with our thicker/heavier alternatives.

This fabric is 1.5m (1500mm) wide and is sold by the linear metre or in smaller pre-packaged rolls.

This lightweight Kevlar aramid felt offers the very best slash and rip protection of all our protective Kevlar fabrics but, owing to its felt construction it easily attracts and traps water and dirt and so is not suitable for use as an exposed outer layer. The fabric would also not be comfortable to wear against the skin.

The recommended application for this Kevlar felt would be either for non-garment use such as on its own as a protective blanket (to protect someone or something from sparks or heat for example) or in conjunction with a coated fabric such as Supported Kevlar Technical Textile to make a highly protective Kevlar patch suitable for use on the outside of garments such as trousers/pants and jackets. A typical example would be protection from flags and ski poles on the legs of ski-pants.

Typical Uses:

  • Blanket material to shield from heat, sparks and knives and other sharp objects.
  • Sew into garments in patches to add a high level of abrasion, slash and rip resistance.
  • Combine with a supported Kevlar material to make highly effective protective pads for clothing.

How to Buy

The Kevlar® fabric shown on this page weighs 175g/sqm. We can supply the fabric in smaller cut pieces (30cm x 30cm or 30cm x 150cm) which are perfect for making small patches or adding protection to smaller garments such as gloves. For larger projects we can also supply the fabric directly off the 150cm wide roll by the linear metre. Orders for multiple metres will be shipped in one continuous roll, not multiple individual square metres.

When buying fabric by the metre the width of the roll is 150cm (1.5m / 59").

Cutting Kevlar®

Kevlar® is VERY difficult to cut using normal scissors and this Kevlar felt is one of the hardest of all our fabrics to cut in this way.

To cut this fabric we would strongly suggest a good pair of Kevlar Shears which will make light work of the task and leave a tidy edge on the fabric.

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?Ask our technical team a question.

Yes, the fabric can be glued in place using fabric adhesives. However, for a stronger repair, we recommend the use of a Kevlar Sewing Thread which can be used by hand or in a sewing machine to stitch the material permanently to the garment..

Yes, a good quality domestic sewing machine should be able to sew this fabric without any problems.

Although I wouldn’t recommend washing and drying them as part of their daily lifecycle, any of our Kevlar Protective Textiles (with the exception of the Kevlar Protective Patch Material) would be OK to wash and dry. The Heavyweight Fleece and Loopbacked fabrics particularly would behave pretty-much like conventional fabrics. The felt I would be a little more concerned about because it doesn’t have the knitted construction to ensure it stays in shape/together.

An example of acceptable use would be lining motorcycle jeans in the loopbacked fabric and then washing that lining occasionally; I wouldn’t expect any problems or abnormal deterioration. However, an industrial application where they went constantly from wash to dry (like a Kevlar laundry bag) would be likely to deteriorate the material more quickly.

This material is not really designed to be used externally so generally the characteristic yellow colour of Kevlar should not be a problem because it would not be seen however in certain circumstances (vent areas etc.) where it would be seen your only option would be strong textile dies however, being a synthetic fibre it's difficult to get the dye to properly penetrate the fibre and so results when dying this fabric might be hit-and-miss.

Kevlar protective textiles can be machine washed using regular domestic or commercial detergents, ideally at 50-60°C. Normal detergents have a negligible effect on the strength of the product.

You must NOT use chlorine based bleaches as they will significantly damage the strength of the fabric.

We do NOT recommend washing the 'Kevlar Protective Patch' material.
