The Latest News & Updates



Our Customer Projects page shows things folks have done using some of our materials. If you have built a boat, a race car, a model airplane, anything at all that might be of interest, and you would like to show it off, please send a short description of the project and a photo. We would like to include a few words about you, the builder, at minimum who you are and where you live. If you have a personal web page describing your project we would include a link to that. For our business customers we will highlight one product of your choice and provide a link to your web page for more information on this or other products. How about someone offering something new for us to post?


Corrections & Additions


Graphite Fabrics

We have a good supply of style 94901-50" graphite, the 5.7 oz plain weave, and a good supply style 94933-50" graphite, the 6.2 oz twill weave. We also have 94905-50" Kevlar/graphite hybrid in stock. All of these styles are BGF first-quality fabrics. Please check the Graphite page for additional information.

Graphite materials have been in tight supply due to heavy military demand. Availability is variable but seems to be improving. It is our intention to keep our regular customers supplied to the extent possible.

We have style 1016-1.5" unidirectional tape also listed on the Graphite page. Once current stock is depleted the price is expected to increase. We are out of the 1016-3" uni graphite at this time.


Kevlar® Fabrics

The Kevlar aerospace seconds that we have traditionally carried have been very scarce. We have style 285-50" Kevlar with minor weaving flaw, due to the slightly wavy leno edge, we have not seen flaws in the middle of the fabric. We also have style 120-38" Kevlar seconds with minor weaving flaws. We have first quality style 500 Kevlar in 50" and 58" widths, style 281-50" Kevlar, and style 220-54" Kevlar. Please see pricing on our Kevlar page.


S-Glass Seconds

We have Style 6781-50" S-glass seconds with minor weaving flaws listed at the bottom of our Fiberglass page. We have not seen any of these minor flaws circled with blue marks as in the past. We also have first quality 6781-50" S-glass. We have 6781-38" in first quality fabric made with T-glass that tests 10-20% stronger than the S-glass. We have style 6580-61" first quality S-glass. The 6781 is made with a “direct-sized” yarn that does not require heat cleaning and finishing after weaving.


Mold Construction

We get occasional inquiries from people wanting to have a mold constructed. If you are in that line of work we will be happy to refer these people to you. It would be good to have several such sources in different regions of the country. Let us know if you are interested.


Canoeing River Guides

In addition to Randy Carter’s Canoeing White Water River Guide, which we have had for some time, we now have four of the five volumes of Burmeister’s Appalachian Waters river guides.



Please contact us for more information on anything on these web pages. Let us know if you find any broken links or other errors or have difficulties of any kind using the site. We have designed a site with minimal graphics so it will download quickly for those out in the boonies at the end of a long copper wire but we also want it to be user friendly.   Suggestions Welcome!
