    Description

    Spread tow fabrics, sometimes referred to as Flat Tow increase the performance of your parts while enhancing the appearance. Spread tow fabrics will yield a smoother surface finish, and lighter composite parts (in upwards of 20% weight savings compared to standard woven fabrics). The fibers lay flat in the spread tow fabrics which removes the small areas in between the strands in the weave where excess resin can accumulate. It is a very small amount, however every time a carbon strand is woven over and under a perpendicular strand, it creates a bridge where just a tiny bit more resin can accumulate. In one yard of a standard 50″ 3k Plain weave carbon fabric there are approx 23,400 places where the weave bridges, In a plain weave spread tow fabric (25mm tape size) that amount is reduced to about 1800 places. That is over a 90% reduction in places where excess resin can accumulate. Now you can see why you are able to achieve parts with a 20% weight savings and the true potential of these materials. That is why NASCAR and F-1 Teams use these fabrics.

    This fabric is made from Toray T700 12k fiber

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

    First Quality Remnants:

    First Quality Fabric Remnant Rolls are short rolls of fabric, which have no defects in them. These remnant rolls are either leftover fabric from the end of a roll or sections of fabric 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 may have some defects in them.  These defects make them not good to use if you want to make cosmetic parts, which have a 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 as 2.0 yards may actually be between 72” and 89” in length.
