Material as per aviation standards
Setting (Thr./cm): 4 x 4
Width: 100 cm
Basic weight 160 g/m² + 10-15 g/m² EP binder
Standard reinforcement fabric for modelling, motorsports, marine construction, and sporting equipment.
The fabric is coated on one side with an EP-Binder, backside is smooth.
The EP binder prevents slippage, so cut pieces do not loose threads. Heat (pressure mould) can be used to preform the fabric before impregnation with resin. Specifically for carbon designs in automotive engineering. Even an iron on the surface (eg during coating of surfaces) is possible. The fabric will be formed only and has additionally to be impregnated with resin.
If the fabric is processed during normal hand laminating without melting the binder, please make sure that the smooth side is placed on the later visible side of the mould. Otherwise too many small air bubbles will form because the fabric does not lie flat due to the "droplets" of the EP binder.
