 Considerations before you buy any Carbon Fibre parts:-

Carbon Fibre Composite or 100% Carbon Fibre?

Decide whether you want Carbon Fibre Composite or 100% Carbon Fibre. Carbon Fibre Composite is the most common product offering out there. This consists of a Carbon Fibre outer shell - 3K in our case combined with a Fibreglass backing. 100% Carbon Fibre parts consist of the same outer shell - 3K Carbon Fibre with a 12K Carbon Fibre backing. Parts look identical and have an identical finish. The 100% Carbon Fibre product is simply stronger and lighter.


We can provide Plain Weave or Twill Weave
. Plain Weave is more common on motorcycles but we can provide either.

Gloss or Matte Finish?

Simple - would you like a shiny finish or a matte finish.
Glossy is the most popular choice for motorcycles.

Manufacturing Process?

There are basically Two types of manufacturing process for these products.

Wet Layup Construction

Wet layup and vacuum bagging methods are an economical choice for relatively low volume parts. Because this method utilizes room temperature resin cure systems, lower cost tooling can be manufactured from virtually any kind of mold material. During wet layup construction, dry woven fabric plies are placed into the mold and impregnated with a liquid resin agent by hand using a combination of squeegees, brushes, and rollers. Each ply of carbon is carefully "wet out" and inspected for entrapped air before the next ply is placed. Once the ply schedule is completed, the part is placed in a bag and placed under vacuum pressure until the part has cured. Vacuum bagging forces the plies of carbon against the tool, eliminating trapped air pockets, and removing excess resin.

Pre-Preg Construction with Autoclave

Pre-preg construction with autoclave, oven, or compression molding methods are reserved for parts and assemblies that require the highest strength to weight ratio achievable. Military aircraft, wind turbines, Formula 1 racecars, and laboratory centrifuge buckets are just a few examples of products that take advantage of pre-preg carbon fibre's strength to weight ratio. In pre-preg construction, woven carbon fibre fabric is pre-impregnated with an epoxy resin system that requires elevated cure temperatures typically above 250 deg F. Because the amount of resin impregnated into the fabric is closely controlled to its optimum amount, pre-preg materials yield components that are lighter than parts manufactured using wet layup techniques. Additionally, because pre-preg does not cure at room temperatures, fabricators have considerable more "open time" to complete the lamination process, assuring that the fibre's orientation is meticulously aligned to optimize the strength of the part. Unlike wet layup techniques, pre-preg remains tacky during the lamination process, allowing each ply to stay firmly in place which assures proper fibre alignment and aids in the preparation for the curing cycle. Curing cycles are achieved with carefully controlled temperature cycles in ovens or autoclaves. Depending on the part size and resin properties, full cure can be achieved in as little as 1 – 2 hours. Tooling for pre preg parts can be manufactured from aluminum, hi temp carbon fibre, or tooling block.

We use this Pre-Preg construction with Autoclave.
