Selecting materials for wrapping/covering existing parts in carbon fiber just got easier with our pre-made kits. You can also use these kits to produce parts entirely from carbon fiber as well. These kits include all of the materials you need to cover your parts except for the Reinforcement Fabric. This allows you the option to select fabrics different than those that are offered in our other Part Wrapping Kits. We do recommend that you choose a fabric in the 5oz – 9oz weight range because these fabrics offer the most conformability to your parts. You will receive the materials listed below with the kit. We have 3 different kit sizes available to fit your needs.
Please note the Composite Reinforcement Fabric is NOT INCLUDED but can be purchased separately in the Composite Fabrics category of our site.

This resin uses a 2:1 hardener. Mixing 2 parts epoxy to 1 part hardener will give you the appropriate final mixture.
The 2:1 hardener has a pot life of 35-40 minutes at 80° F, set time of 5-6 hours and a drying time of 24-48 hours. This epoxy is NON-blushing.
This is considered to be a slow hardener, Our 3:1 and 4:1 hardener epoxies will cure much faster. However this 2:1 hardener will provide you with the maximum working time possible and should not be used in temps under 70° F unless a very long curing time is needed. Slow hardener should be used at temperatures above 80° F for optimal overnight curing.
