How to Buy

Our Double A-Side High Strength Carbon Fibre Sheet is available to buy in thicknesses of 0.25mm, 0.5mm, 1mm, 2mm and 3mm. Choose your required thickness at the top of the page.

The sheet is also available in sheet sizes 285mm x 140mm, 285mm x 285mm, 580mm x 285mm and 580mm x 580mm which should also be selected at the top of the page.

Technical Data

Manufacturing Process

These sheets are made in-house in our specially designed platen press.

By manufacturing in-house we can supply the highest quality prepreg carbon fibre sheet available at the best possible price; a combination that has won us ongoing contracts supplying some of the biggest names in technology, engineering and motor-sport.

Laminate Composition

The matrix used is a high performance epoxy resin which offers excellent mechanicals, clarity and improved UV stability. The high temperature cure maximises the mechanical strength properties and results in a Tg (glass transition) of 80°C.

Our Double A-Side High Strength Carbon Fibre Sheet is manufactured from multiple layers of our XPREG XC130 Prepreg Carbon 3K, 210g, 2/2 Twill and our XPREG XC130 Prepreg Carbon Fibre 12K, 450g, 2/2 Twill in the following lay ups:

How to Cut and Shape

This carbon fibre sheet can easily be cut and finished to a high standard using simple workshop tools. Cutting and finishing carbon fibre can also be perfectly safe if you follow some basic safety precautions.

For a comprehensive guide to both safety advice and cutting and finishing techniques watch our Easy Composites video guide to cutting and shaping carbon fibre sheet and carbon fibre parts.

Manufacturing Contracts

If you are an established manufacturing business looking for a reliable supplier of engineering quality carbon fibre sheet please call us to discuss your requirements or arrange to see some samples.

Our production facilities mean we can manufacture prepreg carbon fibre or hybrid composite sheet to just about any specification, often with little or no setup cost:

  • Custom thickness
  • Custom fibre orientation
  • Competitive volume pricing

Regrettably, we are unable to offer custom sheet fabrication for small runs (less than 10sqm). We do not offer a cutting/trimming service.

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?Ask our technical team a question.

It's not possible to give an exact weight because it would depend on many things (how the sheet is supported, what the span in, how the weight it loaded, whether the sheet is a 'free span' (i.e. not bonded/fixed) or bonded or fixed (so you get a 'drum skin' effect). That said, you could be confident that a sheet slid over a hole such that the sheet is supported on all sides would support the weight of an average person quite easily.

I guess you're asking if it can be heated and re-formed (like softening and bending a thermoplastic). If so then no; this is a cured, rigid sheet, its shape cannot be changed other than cutting it. The only way you can shape a prepreg is to buy our Easy Composite's uncured prepreg carbon fibre. You would then need to vacuum bag the prepreg in a mould and cure it in an oven. Because there's quite a few materials and bits of equipment involved in this process and you are interested in curing your own prepregs then we have, under our Easy Composites brand, put together a Prepreg Carbon Fibre Starter Kit which includes everything you would need.

No, the sheets are made up of fibres orientated at the 0 and 90 degree orientations so are not quasi-isoptropic.

The weave pattern of the sheets is a 2/2 twill weave.

These sheets have a maximum service temperature of 100°C.

All the thickness of sheets we sell will accept being bent in small angles over a radius without a problem. The thinner sheets can be bent over a radius by a considerable amount without failure. The sheet will try to return to its original flat shape so for a curved panel, it would need to be bonded or fixed in plate to hold that shape.



Due to the nature of the composite structure, any such bending needs to be over a radius. Trying to create a sharp bend or fold will cause the sheets to fracture and fail around the fold edge.

In double-sided carbon fibre sheet we don't have sheets larger than 580x580mm - this is because of the way the double-sided sheets are manufactured. However, we do now have our new single sided high strength sheets which are also 100% carbon fibre and have the same mechanical properties as the double sided sheet but is available in sheet sizes up to 2m x 1m.

The 0.25mm sheet is made from a single layer of pre-preg carbon fibre. The vast majority of the sheet is a uniform carbon fibre finish, however there is occasionally a small gap in the weave pattern that will allow light to pass through the sheet.
