anyone know where i can buy dupont fabrics like nomex? or other aramid based fiber weaves? i'm in california, usa. shipping or local, doesn't matter... just can't find anywhere that isn't ebayhongkong that will sell nomex by the yard. just looking for a reputable company that i know isn't going to sell me some crap knockoff fabric that doesn't work as well... looking for inherent flame-resistance. don't want treated fabrics.

BSCI sells Carbon-X fabric by the yard. It's more fire-proof than Nomex, but it's stretchy which may make it harder to work with depending on what you need it for.

because we build many custom seat inserts for race cars we buy the creafoam seat bead from Pegasus racing they also sell nomex fabric but we tend to get the fabric from OMP racing .
we also have bought it from Pegasus racing but it costs more to buy it from them then OMP if you only buying in small quantities .
