This panel has a 2×2 twill weave pattern, one of the most common weave patterns in many markets. The finished side of the panel has a classic 2×2 twill, 3K woven carbon fiber appearance and is nearly pinhole-free with a high-gloss finish. The panel’s backside showcases a matte textured ‘peel ply’ finish suitable for secondary bonding, if necessary.
Our high-strength vacuum infused composite panels are manufactured using 100% carbon fiber reinforced with a near-clear epoxy resin matrix. All composite stacks are laid by hand to ensure maximum homogenization of fiber alignment. Stacks are then vacuum infused and cured under pressure greater than 28 inches of mercury. The tool is then elevated to an optimal temperature to produce a near-perfect composite panel with high-grade mechanical properties and a class-A surface finish.
Our panels are also available with an all-weather 3M 6035PC adhesive option. This adhesive covers the entire backside of the panel and has an easy-to-remove backing. Just peel the backing off, and you can adhere the panel just like a sticker. The 3M adhesive backing for this panel is an additional $3.00 per square foot and adds 0.005″ to the thickness of the panel.
Color Disclaimer about Panels:
When Carbon Fiber/Kevlar Fabric is Vacuum Infused to make these panels, the color will darken up from the original color of the Kevlar fabric in dry form. The Blue Kevlar will turn to a Navy Blue color, the Red Kevlar will turn to a Burgundy color, the Orange Kevlar will turn to a Blood Orange color, and the yellow Kevlar (natural color) will turn to a Dijon Yellow color once they are wet out and cured.
