makers use Kevlar as the inside layer, where after vacuum bagging or infusion, the sides of many Kevlar fibers are right there at the surface of the layup. If Kevlar in a resin matrix actually absorbed water, don't you imagine those manufacturers would paint the insides of their boats?
Maybe they know something about what Kevlar does, and doesn't, do.
I guess a policeman or soldier caught wearing Kevlar armor in a tropical rainstorm would be really screwed, no?
What about the sailing industry? Kevlar sails? Rain-soaked, would they turn a sailboat over?
Aren't suburban myths wonderful One or two in every garage.
