This fabric is made from Hexcel IM8 Intermediate Modulus Yarn – This fabric has a width of 50″, tow size of 6k and is woven in a 2×2 Twill weave. This 6k IM7 Carbon Yarn is a smaller looking yarn vs a normal 6k Carbon yarn. Due to the size of the fiber, this 6k fabric gives the appearance of a 3k. This material has a very unique visual appearance. Thickness .009″. This fabric is great for structural buildup and will yield a much stiffer product than a standard modulus 205 gsm fabric.
First Quality Remnants:
First Quality Fabric Remnant Rolls are short rolls of fabric, which have no defects in them. These remnant rolls are either left over fabric from the end of a roll, or sections of fabric which were cut at the wrong length for a specific order. So instead of discarding the short roll, we package it up and sell it as a First Quality Remnant Roll. These First Quality Remnant Rolls are sold at 20% off of the retail price of that fabric.
Second Quality Remnants:
Second Quality Fabric Remnant Rolls are short rolls of fabric, which have a defect in the woven fabric in them. These remnant rolls are cut out of the standard fabrics we sell, but from sections of the rolls that have some defects in them. These defects make them not good to use if you want to make cosmetic parts, which have perfect woven fabric in them, but can be used as the inner layers of your parts, or if you are making small parts and can cut around the defects. These Second Quality Remnant Rolls are sold at 25% off of the retail price of that fabric.
All remnant rolls are rounded DOWN to the nearest ½ yard. So a remnant listed as 0.5 yards may actually be between 18” and 35” in length and a remnant listed at 2.0 yards may actually be between 72” and 89” in length.
