Frequently Asked Questions: Carbon Fiber Fabric

What is carbon fiber fabric?

Carbon fiber fabric is just like other fabrics except it uses carbon fibers instead of cotton, nylon, polyester, etc. The weave is coarser than fabrics used for clothing is more like a heavy canvas. Carbon fiber fabric needs to be laminated with a matrix (i.e. epoxy resin) to form a rigid structure.

Why are there different weaves of carbon fiber fabric?

Carbon fiber comes in different weaves optimized for different uses. For example, the standard twill weave is a good all-purpose fabric. Unidirectional fabric is good for adding strength and stiffness in one direction. Plain weave is good for delicate layups and some patterns are just designed for a unique look!

How do I make parts with carbon fiber fabric?

Since carbon fiber fabric is soft and pliable just like other fabrics it needs a binder to make it rigid. This binder is known as the matrix or resin. Epoxy and vinyl ester resins are the most common materials used. The carbon fiber fabric is formed into the desired shape then the resin is added and cured.

What’s the difference between carbon fiber fabric and prepreg?

Prepreg is a version of carbon fiber that already has a tacky resin impregnated into it. Both carbon fiber fabric and prepreg can be cut and formed into all sort of shapes. Unlike carbon fiber fabric which can be made at room temperature, prepreg requires elevated temperatures and pressure to cure properly.
