Expedition Kevlar Laminate

A strong, lightweight laminate for wilderness trippers who demand tremendous strength and durability.

Swift Expedition Kevlar canoes are built with an exterior coating of clear marine gel coat with layers of Kevlar fabric, Basalt cloth derived from volcanic rock, and high modulus polypropylene Innegra fiber. These layers and pieces sandwich a durable foam core and rib system, creating a long lasting laminate capable of greater elongation and elasticity without failure than any other composite laminate. Fused together with a high impact, flexible Epoxy Vinylester resin system that contains an Ultraviolet Ray (UV) inhibitor.

The Expedition Kevlar laminate is available in clear coat or with interior and exterior gel coat.
