Our Lightest Weight Unidirectional Fabric
This unidirectional fabric is made from a standard modulus fiber making it suitable for a wide array of projects—while still boasting a tensile strength of over 700 KSI—six times stronger than steel! It is our lightest variety of unidirectional carbon fabrics—perfect for precision layups. It is non-woven, so there is no crimping of the fibers and less than 3% of polyester binder is used on one side to allow for the highest possible density of carbon fibers.
The 4.0 oz/sq yd is commonly chosen as a reinforcement for precision parts, like UAV's, model airplanes, model boats, or other recreational parts.
- Unidirectional fabrics add strength in just one direction
- • Never-twisted Standard Modulus fiber with a tensile modulus of at least 33.0 MSI and tensile strength of over 700 KSI.
- Flawless, outward surface after curing
- 12" wide fabric lays up seamlessly side-by-side
- Wets out quickly and easily with epoxy resin
- Fatigue resistance for durable strength
- Ideal for precision and light weight parts for drones, UAV's, model planes, model boats, hiking sticks, pressure vessels, and model aerospace projects.
- If your application calls for higher strength properties, consider our 4.3 oz #2596 Unidirectional IM Fabric.
- To maximize strength properties, use with an epoxy, like our System 2000 Epoxy Resin (#2000).
