3K, Plain Weave Carbon Fiber Fabric

3K, Plain Weave Carbon Fiber Fabric
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.

Carbon Fiber Tape
5.7 oz/sq yd, Various Widths, 0.012" Thick, 3K Plain Weave


Carbon fiber tape is ideal for selective reinforcement of carbon fiber fabrications, sleeve winding, lap joining, and repairs of cracks on graphite surfaces. Just like their wider carbon fabric counterparts, these standard modulus tapes offer higher ultimate tensile strength and stiffness-to-weight ratios than any other commonly available reinforcements.

Carbon fabric tapes are referred to as tapes only for their width and appearance—they are not adhesive backed. Their finished edges offer easier handling and a clean, finished appearance. They are ideal for use in auto racing, aerospace, competition marine, and light industrial applications.

To maximize the fiber properties, use with epoxy or vinyl ester resins. Polyester resin is also suitable, and is primarily used in cosmetic applications where higher strength-to-weight ratios are not a factor.
EC Cutter
Cut quickly and safely 

Give your hands a break and take the strain out of cutting. These electric shears make quick work of prepreg and dry fiberglass and carbon fiber fabrics. With these scissors you can cut straight lines or curves at the push of a button and the unique blade configuration cuts fabric with ease but can't cut your fingers. You can use your EC Cutter on most fabrics and vacuum bagging films. They are versatile enough to cut anything from thick stitched fiberglass to 1K Carbon Fiber, precise enough to use with thin bagging films and peel plys, and can handle most things in between.

The rechargeable battery provides hours of use between charges and eliminates the need for awkward or restrictive power cords. Ships complete with two sets of blades, rechargeable battery, battery charger, AC adapter, and transformer.

EC Cutters are NOT recommended for use with Kevlar® fabrics or during a wet layup.
