250g Carbon Glass Plain Weave Stabilised (1250mm)

We sourced a large quantity of this great value carbon/glass hybrid cloth. At around half the price of an equivalent 100% carbon fibre cloth, this hybrid can be used in place of glass cloth, producing a noticeably stiffer laminate, or in place of carbon cloth, significantly reducing the component cost for only a small reduction in performance.

This listing is for the stabilised version of this cloth, which allows this cloth to be handled and cut without distortion or fraying, ideal for butt-joints and neat seams.

1.25m wide, sold by the linear meter. Available only while stocks last.

Incredible Value Surplus Stock

We sourced a large quantity of this great value carbon/glass hybrid cloth which was surplus stock at a major UK weaver.

At around half the price of an equivalent 100% carbon fibre cloth, this hybrid can be used in place of glass cloth, producing a noticeably stiffer laminate, or in place of carbon cloth, significantly reducing the component cost for only a small reduction in performance.

This low cost carbon fibre reinforcement is intended for use in non-visual applications, backing layers, mould making and general use. It is not suitable for critical cosmetic applications, aerospace use or other uses where a CoC or fibre certificates are required.

Stabilised Version

This listing is for the stabilised version of our 250g carbon/glass hybrid fabric. The stabilising binder makes the material easier to handle and cut without distorting or fraying, but does make it less inclined to ‘drape’ over compound surfaces.

Fibre Specification

This fabric is woven from virgin, high strength 3k carbon fibre tow and woven glass tow. However, we are unable to disclose the specific manufacturer and fibre type for commercial reasons. If your application requires full traceability; our standard 210g 2x2 carbon fibre cloth comes with this as standard.

If you need the highest quality

Remember that if you do need the highest standard of carbon fibre reinforcement, all other fabrics sold on our website are woven to the most exacting standards with full quality inspection, fibre certification and batch traceability. Follow this link for our high quality Carbon Fibre 2/2 Twill 3k 210g.

How to Buy

This fabric is 1.25m (49") 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.

When purchasing by the linear metre, especially in longer lengths, we will sometimes join the fabric (maximum of one join) to avoid waste. This is not done for other carbon fabrics but applies to this fabric because of the very low price.

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.

You can purchase a sample of our glass cloth here.

The manufacturer has not been able to provide any specific CTE data for the woven glass.  However, e-glass, which is what this fabric is made from, has a nominal CTE of 5.4 µm/m-°C for temperatures between -30 and 250°C.

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.

You can purchase a sample of our fabrics here.

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.

The 'weft' fibre (across the roll) is glass and the 'warp' (down length of roll) is carbon fibre. 

Yes that is correct, the weft fibre is Glass and the warp is carbon fibre. Thus in the warp direction (along the roll length), the stiffness is primarily down to the carbon fibre. The fibreglass (as with most fibres) has negligible stiffness across the fibres compared to down their length.
