3K, Plain Weave Carbon Fiber Fabric


big beam Hi I’m Steve from Fibre Glast today I’d like to show you one of our
most popular carbon fiber products the 3K Plain Weave Fabric available on
Fibre Glast dot com carbon fiber is used as a
reinforcement in the composite lamination industry fabricators select carbon fiber as
opposed the fiberglass or Kevlar for its superior strength and stiffness to
weight ratio graphite fibers made up of 95 percent carbon are at the heart that this strength in
fact they have the highest ultimate tensile strength in the FRP
industry tensile strength is the force required to pull both ends of any
length until it breaks it’s measured in kilopounds per square
inch or KSI the fibers in our 530 boast an ultimate
tensile strength of at least 610 KSI most competitors offer only around 500 just another reason to depend on the
Fibre Glast First Quality commitment to ensure that every roll we handle is
manufactured to the highest standards as a result you can expect the same
properties and handling characteristics every time you order from us carbon
fiber also boasts the highest compressive strength the capacity to withstand loads that
compress and flexural or bend strength in the industry like all of our carbon fiber
reinforcements the number 530 will only realize all of these strength properties when used with a resin this step is necessary and selecting the
right resin for your project is crucial to achieve maximum strength to weight
ratios use an epoxy like the System 2000 epoxy resin also available on Fibre Glast dot com
when combined they will produce a hard laminate part
number 530 is a 3K fabric where bundles of 3,000
individual carbon filaments are woven together in this plain weave bundles are woven
one to one allowing uniform strength in both
horizontal and vertical directions to maximize the strength and stiffness
of a lamination fabricators often choose to position
multiple alternating layers at 45-degree angles one on top of the
other while the 530 is popular for a variety
of applications particularly for lightweight aerodynamic
parts keep in mind that any plain weave fabric will not conform to shapes as
well as a twill or satin fabric style for smaller
applications or use with winding lap joining or
repairs consider our 3K plain weave carbon fiber tape
available in various widths thanks for watching Fibre Glast on YouTube learn more details about our number 530 or check out our complete carbon fiber
