  dont' complicate this

Keel strip is a sacrificial structure. Since it has no intrinsic structural value, requirements for good quality laminate are not valid.
Kevlar/Aramid is an awesome material, but money is wasted in using it as a keel strip.

For OP - just do a quick search for keel strip on kayaks, quite a few walkthroughs will come up. Even Sea Kayaker Magazine did a write-up some time ago.

KeelEasy - well, folks opinions will differ, but, based on my personal experiences, you should consider something else. That vinyl tape works really great for heel protection on the inside of the boat, though.
