210g Plain Weave 3k Carbon Fibre Cloth

Special ProFinish stabilised version of our best-selling carbon fibre fabric. ProFinish is a light binder sprayed onto the fabric during manaufacture meaning that it won't fray or distort when handled and cut, perfect for precise join-lines and avoiding weave distortion on flat panels .

The fabric itself is our premium quality 210gsm 2x2 twill 3k carbon fibre cloth suitable for cosmetic and structural applications.

1m wide, sold by the linear metre.

Carbon Fibre Cloth Fabric 3k Plain Weave 200gsm.

Plain weave carbon fibre fabric is the 2nd most commonly used type of carbon cloth. Instead of having the distinctive diagonal pattern of 2/2 twill, plain weave is woven over-one-under-one leaving it with a simple grid pattern appearance.

Plain weave might be selected over 2/2 twill for cosmetic reasons (matching fabric already used on a vehicle for example) or because its tighter weave makes it easier to handle without distorting it. If you need the fabric to 'drape' very easily into and over curved shapes then you might want to consider 2/2 twill instead which is better suited to such shapes.

This plain weave carbon fibre 3k cloth is suitable for use in wet-lay, vacuum bagging and resin infusion manufacture as well as for use as a single surface layer where parts are being made to look like carbon fibre (skinning).

When using only carbon fibre reinforcement in a part you should expect to use several layers of this fabric in each part. None-structural components like body panels and covers will typically require 3-6 layers of a carbon fibre cloth of this weight.

How to Buy

This 200g plain weave carbon fibre roll is 1m (39") wide and the fabric is sold by the linear metre. The unit price shown is for 1 linear metre but volume discounts automatically apply for larger quantities of fabric.

Please purchase the number of linear metres you require. When purchasing multiple metres the fabric will be supplied in one continuous length on a roll.

This cloth is available in 1m and 1.25m roll widths. Please select the desired roll width from the drop down box.

For wet-lay lamination you will use approximately the same weight of resin as the weight of the fabric. For example, with a 200gsm cloth, for 1 square metre you will have 200g of fabric and thus will need 200g of resin to wet it out, plus a small amount of wastage for the brush and mixing pot.

'3k' is the filament count or tow size. It simply means that each 'bunch' of carbon fibres that this cloth is woven from is made up of 3000 individual carbon filaments. Bigger counts (6k, 12k etc.) means chunkier 'bunches' of carbon so chunkier fabrics.

Thickness of any reinforcement is dependent on consoldation (how much it's 'squashed down'. For this reason we generally give out thickness figures for when the reiforcement is consoldated under vacuum (1bar); this seems like the most useful figure. For example, a 90gsm carbon, a single layer, compressed under vacuum, would be about 0.1mm thick. For a 200gsm carbon a single layer would be about 0.25mm thick. This is the number you see listed under 'thickness' in the specification table.

Well, this depends entirely on what reinforcement you're laminating, speficically how thick and heavy it is. If you're laminating 5mm of carbon fibre you'll use a lot more resin that if you're laminating just 1mm of it. Fortunately though there a really quick rule to get a good estimate - simply add up the total weight of your reinforcement and you'll probably need the same weight in resin. This means that if you're laminating 5 layers of 200g carbon (so a total of 1000g of carbon) then you'll want about 1000g (i.e. 1kg) of Epoxy Resin. If it was 2 layers of 450g glass then you'd need about 900g per square metre.

The carbon fabric itself will survive many hundreds of degrees and is not the limiting factor for almost all applications. The limiting factor will be the heat distortion temperature of the resin system you plan to laminate this fabric with.



An engine rocker/cam cover may easily be exposed to hot oils at around 120°C as well as heat from the exhaust which would be dependent on the engine configuration and level of tune. As such we would recommend considering using a higher temperature resin system such as our Very High Temperature Epoxy Laminating Resin which, with an appropriate post-cure, can be used up to 180°C.



An alternative option would be to consider making the part with an out of autoclave pre-preg carbon fibre where typically the resin systems can achieve a HDT up to 120°C.

For very critical applications, such as aerospace, even dry carbon fabrics will be 'lifed' due to very gradual degradation of the sizing on the fibres, however in practice, for most applications, the degradation is minimal and most users would consider dry fabrics to not have a shelf life when stored appropriately.

All Carbon fibres are naturally charcoal black in colour.

I'm afraid that 1.5m is our widest cloth. Much wider than 1.5m would be very difficult to handle and so is very rarely woven. Don't forget that you can turn the cloth through 90° so that the 'length' of the roll becomes your 'width' i.e. if you had a part that was 2m wide and 1.2m long you could purchase 2 linear metres of 1.25m wide cloth.

A full roll of this fabric is typically 100m, a unit on the website is for 1m, whatever quantity you order up to 100m will be supplied as a continuous roll.
