6K, 5HS Satin Weave Carbon Fiber Fabric

Quick-build, No-flex Parts–Twice the Fiber Density

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.

Features

  • This material builds quickly to form lightweight structures with virtually no flex.
  • With twice the fiber density of the 3K types, this fabric is ideal for structural applications
  • Works well with complex shapes
  • Unmatched strength to weight ratio
  • 50" width suits most projects
  • Fatigue resistance for durable strength

Tips

  • 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 strength properties, use with an epoxy, like our System 2000 Epoxy Resin (#2000).

I've tried alot of different carbon fibers in a very short amount of time but none of them yeilded such high strength parts like this stuff while still being really conformable to complex shapes during hand layups. Fabric builds depth and strength with minimal layers as well as being easy to use. The finished products have the best aesthetics thanks to that weave. My personal favorite to work with. :)

6K, 5HS Weave Carbon Fiber Fabric

This fabric is sold by the linear yard, either as a prepackaged quantity or by continuous yardage.

Prepacks
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.
