NOTE: This fabric is stiff and will be very difficult to bend around complex shapes or hard corners. This fabric is best used for flat plates and elongated curves. There is a possibility of color variation on these materials.
Hypetex® is a 245gsm twill carbon that has good pliability for forming complex contours and it is better at maintaining its fabric stability and less potential stress
This is a fabric sample that’s available in a 4″x4″ size.
Outstanding visual quality for cosmetic parts.
Excellent fiber alignment and flat weft yarn insertion.
Ideal for prepreg and infusion processes.
The carbon fiber industry is set for an injection of color following the official launch of Hypetex, the world’s first colored carbon fiber brand.
Hypetex® coloring technologies are optimized for either thermoset or
thermoplastic matrix systems, and are mechanically characterized to aid structural optimization. All our materials are quality assured to the highest industry standards.
Hypetex® technologies use water based resins and nano pigments that puts color onto the composite at the point of production, removing the need for expensive paints or coatings. The result is a colorful premium aesthetic part straight from the mold, reducing post processing costs and offering a more environmentally friendly coloring solution.
After seven years of research and development, leading engineers from the world of Formula 1 have created a colored carbon fiber composite that is light, bright, bold and strong, making it an ideal material for use in a number of industries from motoring and motor sport to cycling and design.
We supply a wide spectrum of visually stunning colored advanced technical materials which offer the additional benefits of reduced part finishing time, costs and the extra weight of paint systems.

How We Sell - Fabrics
Our fabrics are sold by the linear yard, with the exception of our samples which are a single 4"x4" (or 5"x7") piece. 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.
