    Description

    This fabric has a tow size of 12k and is a UNI Directional Fabric.

    Fiber type – Fiber type available is a Hexcel IM2 12k Intermediate Modulus Fiber. This yarn is smaller in size than a standard 12k yarn and visually replicates the look of a standard strength 6k carbon fiber yarn while offering over a 60% increase in tensile strength and reducing the weight in almost half. Pound for pound the IM2 offers a material approximately 2.5 times stronger than a standard carbon fiber yarn.

    This fabric is available in 1″, 2″, 3″, 4″,  6″, 12″, 24″ and 50″ widths.

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

    Our fabrics are 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 clear plastic or Kraft paper over it, making sure to keep the fabric in its first quality condition. We pride ourselves on having one of the best material handling crews possible.
    Resin consumption is provided for the approximate amount of resin by weight 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 depends on the user’s techniques. Vacuum bagging a wet layup will improve the resin content. Too much resin will cause a weaker part, not stronger. The average rule of thumb is around 45% (+/- a couple of percent). To calculate actual resin % in your part, a burn test is used. For example, you have a part weighing 100 grams, and 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.
