Kevlar/epoxy systems are known for their mechanical properties which are superior to those obtained in many other composites. However, they have not found wide use in flexural applications as Kevlar fibres tend to buckle in compression during bending, which reduces their strength considerably. One possible method of arresting the fibre buckling in compression is to modify the surface of the compression face by means of coatings which would improve the resistance to premature compressive failure.
