Carbon fibre reinforced polymers are advanced composite materials used in a wide range of applications, from aerospace to automotive to sports equipment. When bound with plastic polymer resin, carbon fibre creates a composite material that is extremely strong, durable and lightweight and can be found in many forms, including fabrics, tubes and tows.
For use in manufacturing your own carbon fibre products, we stock a range of high quality carbon fibre fabrics. Fabrics are available in a number of different weave patterns (such as plain weave, twill weave, harness weave etc.) weights (such as 200g, 400g etc.)
Lightweight 3k carbon fibre fabric including the very popular 200g weight ideal for visible surface layers and as backing layers on lighter laminates.
Heavier weight woven 12k carbon fibre fabrics such as 450g and 650g, commonly used as backing layers in thicker laminates.
High Strength Carbon Fibre Sheet or Carbon Fibre Plate is manufactured using 100% carbon fibre reinforcement and epoxy resin matrix, cured under pressure at elevated temperature to produce a carbon fibre sheet with engineering-grade mechanical properties and a class-A surface finish
BEYOND MATERIALS™ carbon fibre starter kits are the perfect way to experiment with new materials, processes and equipment without the hours of research needed to know what combination of products is right for a certain process. Everything you need to make your own carbon fibre parts including dry carbon fibre fabric, top quality epoxy system, release agent, gloves, pots and stirrers.
