300g +/-45 Biaxial 3k Carbon Fibre Cloth

300gsm +/-45° biaxial carbon fibre reinforcement using high strength TR50S fibre. A non-crimp multiaxial like this is frequently used in combination with conventional woven fabric reinforcement to conveniently add fibres - and therefore strength - aligned at +45° and -45°, creating a laminate with more equal strength in all directions.

Available in 540mm and 1270mm (1.27m), sold by the linear metre.

Carbon fibre biaxial, ±45° fibre orientation, stitched (none crimp) carbon fibre. 300gsm material made from high strength Zoltec PX35 50K carbon fibre.

This plus minus 45° carbon biax is perfect for a huge range of composite reinforcement applications ranging from use in general carbon fibre part manufacture (carbon fibre vehicle panels, seats, marine structures) to carbon fibre moulds (for high temperature use, such as prepreg moulds) through to flat sheet production where it can be used internally, in between layers of woven carbon fibre, to create an improved sheet with quasi-isotropic fibre orientation.

Typical Uses

This biaxial cloth is a very versatile reinforcement and has a multitude of uses including:

  • Reinforcement in carbon fibre vehicle panels
  • Reinforcement in moulded carbon fibre parts, such as seats
  • Internal/backing layers for carbon fibre sheets (adds quasi-isotropic strength)
  • Reinforcement for carbon fibre moulds (for prepreg or high temperature moulds)
  • Reinforcement in sporting equipment eg. skis, snow boards etc.

Units of Sale

This fabric is available in roll widths of 1270mm (50") and 540mm (21") wide and the fabric is sold by the linear metre. The unit price shown is for 1 linear metre, volume discounts automatically apply for larger quantities of fabric. Please select the desired roll width from the drop down box.

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.

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 yarn is made from polyester and is white in colour. When the fabric is wetted-out with resin this yarn will go more translucent but it certainly won't go invisible. However, generally speaking, we don't consider biaxials to be cosmetic reinforcements and so it is also possible that the yarn appearance may differ on some stock; if it's important to you, I'd suggest checking with us at the time of ordering, just to make sure.
