Carbon fibers are usually combined with other materials to form a composite. When combined with resin and wound or molded it forms carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (often referred to as carbon fiber) which has a very high strength-to-weight ratio.
Carbon fibers are very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports, along with other competition sports.
Woven carbon fabrics are avaialble as both a Twill and a Plain weave.
They are generally used when only a light carbon laminate is required for the performance of the panel or the cosmetics of the carbon structure require a high quality finish.
Like all carbon fabrics they offer:
- high stiffness
- high tensile strength
- low weight
- high chemical resistance
- high temperature tolerance
- low thermal expansion
Carbon Plain 200g/m2- 1250mm wide
Carbon Twill 200gm/m2 -1250mm wide
Carbon Unidirectional fibre , 100% of the fibres running in the 0 direction.
Carbon unidirectional fibres have all the unique properties of carborn fibre: high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance
low thermal expansion.

Carbon Double Bias
Carborn Fibre double bias fabrics are stitched together a with a 45/45 fibre orientation.
Typical uses are the laminating and support of complex composite shapes requiring high strength and low weight.
