Answer

Wash layer will come out to approximately .010" thick depending on the process you're using. This is accurate for vacuum / resin infusion, but if you're doing wet layup it will come out a little thicker. I use to work in the racing industry using all preinpregnated material. That also came out to about .010" per layer. Majority of the time we did 4 layers - 5 layers, with an extra 2 - 3 layers in spots that may take more damage or mounting locations. Hope this helps

Answer

Yes, you do not need to thicken the epoxy to get it to set. I would brush on a thin coat to the surface you are applying it to then to the back side of the cloth and put it in place. Then you just need to make sure you don't have any air bubbles under the cloth. Just keep brushing until you work them all out and wait for it to set to appreciate your work...

Answer

yes you can. More fill coats will be needed. And you will need to clear coat it for UV protection.

Answer

Absolutely!! I use this this cloth to make tubing and lay ups from fin to fin on high power rockets I fly as a hobby. The thin laminating epoxy is what you want for this.

Answered on 05/27/2014 by DENNIS WATKINS

Answer

Hi Bob, Yes, I used a 30 minute epoxy thinned with about 20% MEK. You could use alcohol, lacquer thinner, etc - just about everything will thin epoxy without losing any strength. The thinner will evaporate off leaving the epoxy. This makes for a very, very strong bond when the CF is completely wetted out. Regards,

Answer

West system works great. Only use enough to coat the fiber.

Answered on 10/03/2011 by JASON HAUPTMAN

Answer

We used the West System epoxy. That is the 105 Resin, and the 205 hardener. We used size B of both. Works great. Nice and light. Be careful, it can get hot while curing, especially if you mix it in a container, that can get REALLY hot because its all in one place.

Answer

I have a Seawind 24 catamaran and wanted to replace the side deck panels that are 4' * 10' and were aluminum and too low. I used end grain balsa with the carbon fiber weave on both sides of the end grain balsa and then ran three lateral stringers of 2" * 1" underneath, epoxied on using West System 205. The result are two exceptionally light, rigid platforms that have easily held the weight of 4 adults a 3' chop at 12-14 speed, so well above strength. I painted the underside but used the Kiwi textured deck paint on top in light blue and its really good. I did vacuum bag the decks as I laid them up. Recommend this. Alan

Answer Question

Question

I have enough cf for the job, but need to juggle the pieces to cover the whole area. If I have to join pieces of carbon fiber, what guidelines would you use to decide where to make the cuts? How much overlap? And what do you do with the tough greenish thread that holds the edges of the 2" tape in place?

Asked on 07/07/2014 by Susan Ball

Top Answer

Hi Tom. thanks for the info. Am only using a single layer of 5.7 oz carbon twill with a layer of s-glass over it. Weight is the issue. This is going over Divinycell, with fiberglass underneath the composite. All the videos seem to use a single sheet, and I wondered how cut edges would look cosmetically, and if the carbonfiber strength would be compromised. If so, the direction and position of those cuts would be an issue worth investigating. I'm building a flight case with some curves.

Answer

A lot of this depends on the application. I'm guessing that you're not laying this up in a mold, but if so, put the cuts in the first layer where they'll look the best. Regardless, try to put your joined areas in different spots on subsequent layers. A 1" overlap should be plenty. The threads on the tape just stay in it. I hope this was helpful. Good luck!

Question

How thick is this cloth and is it suitable as a work table-top protector?

Asked on 07/01/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

This would not be a good choice as a tabletop protector unless you plan to epoxy it in place. Carbon fiber is designed to be used with an epoxy resin (think fiberglass) to provide a tough membrane. As a stand alone material, the loose twill strands would not hold their uniformity, and would provide no more protection than a tablecloth. If your looking for a work table protector, use a sheet of 2-sided melamine in 1/2 or 3/4" thickness. Durable, reversible, and disposable.

Answered on 07/01/2013 by JASON FRANTZ

Answer

Material is .012" thick. As far as the table top protection... this depends more on the epoxy for protection than the carbon fiber. It would certainly work if properly applied and would look great.

How thick is this material? Will it conform to a mold with corners that have a .063" radius?

Asked on 05/05/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I used this on a fairly flat surface with a nice gentle curve. I do not think it will conform to corners that tight. For what I used it for it was perfect, I got the stiffness I needed and it was easy to work with.

It measures 0.009 inches thick with my digital calipers. It is flexible enough to conform to a 0.063" radius.

Good day. I'm planning to build my own fishing boat, about 50' ft length and made of carbon fiber. A trimaran type of fishing boat. My question is what type of carbon fiber should I use for the hull? outrigger? and some other part. Thank you very much...

50 foot really! Wow, I would ask this question to the north west school of wooden boats you can look it up on the Internet. They would know all the engineering of what type and tensile strength carbon fiber and fiberglass you would need.with that size of boat I wouldn't trust information from anyone but professionals Sirius professionals.

Question

How thick is this material? Will it conform to a mold with inside corners that have a .063" radius?

Asked on 05/06/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I find that this carbon fiber fabric is similar in thickness to 7-8 ounce fiberglass, but not as nimble. Being the weave is wider then 1/16th inch, you would need to set it on the bias for an inside radius like that, unless you have the means to press it into shape (a vacuum bag would be perfect). Hope this helps.
