Carbon Fiber

High Quality Carbon Fiber

We stock high quality 3K carbon fiber sheets in a variety of thickness, types and finishes. It’s a great material used in applications where light weight and strength are needed, such as drones, RC car parts, racing simulators, and much more. The material is made up of unidirectional carbon fiber layers with a weave layer in the surface to provide the pattern.

We are able to handle everything from one-offs to larger production runs and provide competitive pricing. If we don’t have the material or finish you require, we are more than willing to look at bringing it in for you.

Stocked Material Options

Regular or Quasi layup

The material layup is the direction of the inner layers. Our Regular layup sheets have the layers at 0 and 90 degrees. We also offer a Quasi layup which will have some center layers in the sheet rotated to 45 degrees. This will remove some layers from the 0 and 90, but it will add layers in the 45 and 135 degree direction.

Plain weave or twill weave

The weave type is the pattern which is on the surface of the sheet. This pattern is on the top and bottom only and are cosmetic. There is no difference between the two for strength.

Foam Core Carbon Fiber

Foam core carbon fiber is a great material when you want to reduce weight and strength isn’t as important. This material has a outside layer of CF sandwiched over a dense foam core. Currently we have stock in 2.0mm, 3.0mm, 4.0mm, 5.0mm, and 6.0mm. The CF thickness on the outside is dependent on the overall thickness of the material.
