Question

Is this carbon fiber apealing as far as looks???

Asked on 10/28/2011 by asdf asdf

Top Answer

yes it looks good but needs to be protected from UV light. The epoxy will trun a yellow color and start to break down after being in sun light to long.

Answer

Provided care is take laying up the cloth with resin it look very good. Best practice is to poor resin on as opposed to brushing, and then use conventional fiberglass mat lay up roller, lightly, to avoid stretching the cloth and to aide air removal from resin and cloth. Vacuum bag air evacuation even better.

Question

how wide and thick is this specific product?

Asked on 12/22/2011 by Jacob Riederer

Top Answer

Hi Jacob . Don't remember the exact width and weight but seems like it was about 2 ft or so. the weight has worked real good. I put it on the bottom of my strip built kayak because on the rivers here they take a beating where all the rocks are. It has been about 2 years and nothing has gone through the bottom just a bunch of scratches on the surface. Hope this helps a little. James

The CF is 50" wide , it is thin but 3 times as strong as E glass, very light ,strong, and stiff; uses a whole lot less epoxy than glass, great stuff..

Hi Jacob, I have use this, it is about as thick as 3 or 4 sheets of paper. JAson

Answer

It is .011 thick and come 50" wide.

Answered on 12/22/2011 by PATRICK DOUGAL

Answer

Width is a function of how much you buy. I needed only a small amount, so I bought a single square yard. It was as advertised: a full square yard. Thickness was about half what a comparable amount of fiberglass material. It's been super strong, very lightweight and relatively easy to work with (actually easier to apply to a form than fiberglass typically is.) This was my first time working with CF, but I've been very happy with the results.

Answer

if you're referring to electrical resistance, 3k plain weave CF typically has an in-plane resistivity of 0.020 ohm-cm, or 0.00787 ohm-inches. Again, this is in the plane of the fabric and keep in mind that the resistivity along 0/90 will be different than at 45 degrees. If you want a higher resistivity look to mat instead of woven. Thermal resistivity is trickier because it depends on the resin. Adding graphite powder to the resin will greatly increase thermal conduction. If you really want to get technical, here's a master's thesis on thermal conductivity in composites from a MAE student at WVU: http://wvuscholar.wvu.edu:8881//exlibris/dtl/d3_1/apache_media/L2V4bGlicmlzL2R0bC9kM18xL2FwYWNoZV9tZWRpYS8yMDk0Nw==.pdf

Question

I want to build a foot brace. I have made one from fibreglass but need to have the stiffness and strength in a thinner material so can be worn inside shoe. Suggestion?

Asked on 06/02/2012 by Don Rifffle

Top Answer

CF is great as it's light and stiff and uses very little resin; epoxy on my case as I used it building new amas(pontoons) on my sailboat . IMO it should be excellent material for your foot brace.. Ron

Answer

I do cars and use carbon fiber. Unfortunately it is easy to burr with scissors which probably wouldn't matter to you. However, TAPE is by far the easiest to work with. Since Jamestown does not offer 4" wide carbon fiber, I would get the minimum order of Kevlar Tape 4" and crisscross it for a total of four layers. If you don't have enough stiffness. add lengthwise until you do. Use epoxy. Carbon fiber will do but you'll end up with "splinters". Roger

Question

Hi, I have some small rust areas on a vintage car that I've cut out and want to fix with epoxy and carbon fiber cloth/tape. I don't need a wide piece, tape 2"-3" would be preferred. Do you have anything (carbon fiber) I could use other than this fabric?..thanks

Asked on 05/28/2015 by Frank Perry

Top Answer

It looks like Jamestown has West system carbon fiber tape up to 3 inch width: (< a href=&quot;http://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=1443&familyName=WEST+System+Carbon+Fiber+Tape.&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;>http://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=1443&familyName=WEST+System+Carbon+Fiber+Tape.< /a> However, since your weight savings will not be significant on a metal auto panel, I would use fiberglass. It is cheaper and should provide equivalent strength.

Question

Is this cloth water proof, and if it is can you tell me were to get some that isn't water proof?

Asked on 01/06/2014 by Michael Nicholson

Top Answer

The carbon fiber cloth is a loose weave of flat ribbon like threads of carbon fiber in a weave pattern (kind of like an old lawn chair). Somewhat like fiberglass cloth. The water proof question confuses me somewhat. In its raw state there are air gaps that fluid or air could pass through. But in use a resin in applied making the cloth rigid and strong and very water proof once the resin cures. It can be applied in layers along with fiberglass cloth for different appearance and strength characteristics.

Question

I'm repairing my carbon fiber kayak. A section of seam where the combing attaches to the deck is split. I have to go around a 90 degree bend. I want to match the dark fiber of the combing, but am concerned that carbon fiber may not be flexible enough to make the corner. Are my concerns valid? If so, do you have another product that would work better and still retain the dark color of the carbon weave?

Asked on 07/23/2013 by Rob Zich

Top Answer

CF should be fine, it wets-out nicely and is more pliable than fiberglass around tight radius areas.

can i use this to make a jetski hull? If not, what? I am looking to shed some weight on my pwc or parts of it. thanks, Dan

Asked on 04/08/2012 by DAN MURDOCK

Top Answer

I used this matrieal to build Kayak braces and rudder assembly. I used West Systems epoxy. It would have to be layered up or used in combination with fiberglass clorth to obtain the desired thickness and strenght. By substituing carbon fiber for fiberglass a lot of weight can be saved but but the same can't be said for money. Hope this helps.
