Incredibly light 90gsm plain weave carbon fibre fabric for specialist applications such as aerospace, radio controlled models (particularly planes and helicopters), UAVs and similar.

This 90gsm fabric is less than half the weight of a typical 200gsm carbon fabric meaning it can be used for much lighter precision lamination including wing and fuselage skins on radio controlled models and other air vehicles.

Not only is the fabric very light but it also has a much closer (smaller) weave pitch making it much better suited for very small or detailed work such as cases for electronic devices (iPods, iPhones, PDAs etc.) or in carbon fibre jewellery making.

This specialist fabric is currently supplied to several major defence R&D contractors and professional model making companies.

Typical Uses

This fabric is suitable for use in wet-lay, vacuum bagging and resin infusion manufacture. For maximum performance it should be used with a suitable epoxy resin system.

Units of Sale

Our 90g plain weave cloth is available to buy in small rolls at 150x1000mm and 300x1000mm or by the linear metre. Choose the roll width you require from the drop-down list at the top of the page.

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.

Yes, it would be very easy to do this. Almost too easy - this dry lightweight fabric is quite delicate; you could cut it using a craft knife or even conventional scissors.

No, the carbon would be supplied as 2 separate mini rolls of material.
