5.7 oz/sq yd, 50" Wide, 0.012" Thick, 12.5 x 12.5 Plain Weave
For lightweight aerodynamic parts, this plain weave carbon fiber is a commonly selected fabric style, delivering uniform strength in both horizontal and vertical directions. In fact, this fabric boasts an ultimate tensile strength of at least 610 KSI—most competitors offer only around 500 KSI.
It wets out quickly and handles easily. Only three layers are typically necessary to produce non-structural pieces.
Some considerations when creating composite parts with the #530:
- To maximize strength properties, use with an epoxy, like our System 2000 Epoxy Resin (#2000).
- During the lay-up process, add each layer at an alternating 45-degree angle to maximize strength properties.
- This fabric is available in thin strip tapes for unique shapes or wrapping applications.
Fibre Glast is committed to ensuring that every roll of fabric we handle is First Quality and manufactured to the highest standards, so that you can expect the same properties and handling characteristics every time you order.
Typical full roll length is 100 yards.
