This veil mat is a thin ply of continuous strand fibers that are looped randomly throughout the roll of the material. It is held together with a light binder and is the consistency of tissue paper—it is not intended for structural use.
Carbon Fiber Veil is ideally suited for several applications:
- Place it in a mold directly behind the surface coat to minimize the print-through of the heavier reinforcing cloths applied later. It will permit surface sanding of finished parts without compromising the reinforcing fabric below.
- Use it with sandwich cores. Place veil mat directly over the core to optimize bond-line thickness. In this case, it's also effective at keeping excess resin from draining into cells of honeycomb cores when a vacuum is not being used.
- Use for applications where corrosion-resistant barriers are required. The non-woven construction of the graphite veil allows a resin-rich surface that increases chemical stability and reduces the risk of micro-cracks forming in the composite surface.
- Carbon veils can also be used for grounding a composite structure, minimizing the build-up of static electricity that could prove dangerous when in contact with explosive liquids and gases.
Carbon Fiber Veil is compatible with polyester, vinyl ester, and epoxy resins. 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 125 yards.
