6K, 5HS Weave Carbon Fiber Fabric
Quick-build, No-flex Parts–Twice the Fiber Density
10.9 oz/sq yd, 50" Wide, 0.024" Thick, 6K, 5HS Weave Construction
With twice the fiber density of 3K fabric selections, the 5-Harness Satin Weave builds quickly to form lightweight structural applications that feature virtually no flex. Its unique satin weave features carbon fibers bundled and woven repeatedly to float over four bundles, then under one. As a result, the fabric is flatter and more easily draped over the most complex shapes, especially compared to plain or satin weaves.
Because of its unique satin weave, one side of the fabric will look different than the other. Fabricators will usually invert half the plies when looking to produce a symmetrical laminate.
To maximize fabric properties, use with an epoxy resin, like our #2000 system, or a vinyl ester, although polyesters will bond to the fabric.
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.

This fabric is sold by the linear yard, either as a prepackaged quantity or by continuous yardage.
This fabric is available in pre-cut lengths that measure one yard (#660-A, roll), three yards (#660-B, roll), and five yards (#660-C, roll). Each is packaged and sold separately. For your convenience, these "prepacks" can be purchased in any combination. However, if the length for any one fabric totals 10 yards or more, we suggest you purchase it in continuous, "cut to length" yardage.
Continuous, "Cut to Length" Yardage
If you know in advance that you intend to purchase 10 yards or more of any one fabric, it should be ordered in continuous, "cut to length" yardage. In this case, fabric will be cut once according to the total yardage ordered, and customers receive a price-per-yard discount as compared to prepacks.
Quantity discounts continue to deepen as the yardage increases for any one cut of one fabric.
