Carbon Fiber Purple Reflections Sheet .022"/.56mm.
This sheet has a 2x2 twill weave pattern, one of the most common weave patterns in many markets. The finished side of the sheet has a classic 2x2 twill, 3K woven carbon fiber appearance and is nearly pinhole-free with a high-gloss finish. The backside of the sheet showcases a matte textured 'peel ply' finish suitable for secondary bonding, if necessary.
Our high strength vacuum infused composite sheets 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 sheet with high-grade mechanical properties and a class-A surface finish.
Our sheets are also available with an all-weather 3M 6035PC adhesive option. This adhesive covers the entire backside of the sheet and has an easy to remove backing. Just peel the backing off and you can adhere the sheet just like a sticker. The 3M adhesive backing for this sheet is an additional $3.00 per square foot and adds 0.005" to the thickness of the sheet. If you would like 3M adhesive on your sheet, please use the dropdown above to add it.
To insure maximum structural integrity and flatness throughout all our sheets, we produce 'balanced' laminates for all sheet thicknesses and sizes. This means that the fiber type, weight, and weave pattern are symmetrical throughout all layers of the composite stack.
Symmetric Laminates: A laminate is symmetric when the plies above and below the mid-plane mirror one another. Symmetrical layups help prevent thermal twisting.
Sheets that are 1.4mm / 1/16’’ or thicker are quasi-isotropic laminates, made with non-woven, no-crimp carbon fiber plies, oriented at 0º/90º/+45º/–45º. Quasi-isotropic ply orientation results in a most uniform distribution of strength, and enhances both torsional and diagonal stiffness.
Cross-plied layup will yield a sheet with a higher structural integrity which many applications may require. Laminate stacking and ply orientation can be adjusted for specific applications; for example, if you require greater sheet strength in a particular direction but want to avoid increasing the weight with additional plies.
The detailed lay-ups and fabric stack list can be requested for each of our sheets. Please specify the sheet model number when inquiring.
Epoxy: All sheets are made with a high-performance epoxy resin that offers excellent mechanical functions, clarity and improved UV stability. An elevated post-cure temperature is applied to increase the mechanical strength of the sheet, resulting in a higher Tg and enhancing the inter-laminar sheer strength.
Our sheets are NOT clear coated or UV Protected. To ensure longevity of the sheet, we highly recommend that you apply a clear coat with a UV Protection to the surfaces of sheets that may be exposed to sunlight such as DURATEC SUNSHIELD
Sheet Size and Thickness
Sheets are available in select sizes starting at a minimum of 12’’x 24’’ and increasing 12” at a time in either/both directions, but not to exceed 48’’x96’’.
Examples: 12"x48", 24"x36", 48"x48", 48"x60", and 36"x96".
Sheets are cut by hand*, which may result in a dimensional tolerance of +/- .125” in either direction. Please note that sheet sizes are nominal and may be supplied over-sized.
For sheets larger than 24’’x 48’’, custom boxing and shipping fees may apply.
*Waterjet Cutting: To have your parts arrive at your door cut to precision, you can request your sheet(s) be waterjet cut prior to shipping and simply provide a dxf/dwg cad file (additional costs apply).
