Plain Weave Carbon Fiber Fabric/Cloth 3k 5.8oz/197gsm HEXCEL 282 PRIMETEX. This fabric has a special process applied to it that spreads out the fibers to create a fabric with over 99% fiber coverage, thus eliminating nearly all gaps in the weave of the fabric. Not only is this is one of the nicest looking materials we offer, but this Primetex finish also makes a more even part with minimal excess resin deposits. This fabric is perfect for manufacturing parts and also is the same style of fabric used in the high dollar OEM carbon fiber parts. This material gives the best cosmetic appearance available while remaining easily drapeable. Material is woven here in the USA to ensure high quality standards. Fabric is produced by Hexcel.

Primetex Technology Information

To harden the raw fabric into a usable form, you will need the appropriate resin or epoxy for your project.

How we sell

This roll is available in 50" (127cm)  and 60" (152.4cm) widths and the fabric is sold by the linear yard. The unit price displayed is for 1 linear yard, all volume discounts will be automatically applied when selecting larger quantities of fabric when added to your shopping cart, as indicated in the table above with quantity discount ranges for units purchased.

Please purchase the number of linear yards that you require. When purchasing multiple yards of the same fabric you will receive one continuous length of that material. We carefully take that material and roll it onto a cardboard core and wrap over with clear plastic or Kraft paper, making sure to keep the fabric in its first quality condition. We pride ourselves as having one of the best material handing crews possible. We have most of our material available for purchase in sample swatch books per fabric category.

Resin Consumption @ 45% Resin to Fabric by Weight 4.74opsy / 159.47gsm

The resin consumption provided is for the approximate amount of resin by weight, contained in the final part after processing by vacuum infusion. This does not account for the resin used in the flow lines and consumables such as flow media or breather cloth. Wet-layup by hand will also have a higher resin consumption in the final part and is dependent upon users techniques. Vacuum bagging a wet layup will improve the resin content. Too much resin will cause a weaker part, NOT stronger. Average rule of thumb is around 45% (+/- a couple percent). To calculate actual resin % in your part a burn test is used. For example you have a part weighing 100 grams, you would burn off the resin which would leave the fiber behind. You should have 55 grams of fiber left when your process is working correctly. Due to the variables in processing it is hard to give an accurate amount of resin needed to purchase for making your part. However you will have waste no matter what method is used. A suggested ratio is about 1-1.5lbs of resin per lb of fabric purchased.
