So what is Texalium, and how is it different than carbon fiber? Texalium was developed by a company based out of California named Hexcel.
It's a fiberglass-based fabric that has a proprietary finish and a thin coating of aluminum on the surface.
The aluminum coating is 99.99% pure and approximately 200 angstroms in thickness (One angstrom is one ten-billionth of a meter).
This coating produces the highly reflective surface.
Texalium fabrics are woven in 2/2 twill, and standard roll lengths are 100 yards.
