Fibre: Tenax® IMS65 24k / 830 tex
IM carbon fibres (Intermediate modulus) are specifically suited for lightweight applications. In comparison with standard carbon fibres, as for example Tenax® HTS40 or Torayca® T300, this fibre provides approx. 20 % increased tensile modulus and ca. 50 % increased tensile strength at an increased elongation at break.
Width: 60 cm
Length: 310 cm
Surface weight (g/m²): 27.5 / 27.5
Construction: +/- 45°
Motor sports, marine construction, sports equipment and model construction. This biaxial NCF has 2 unidirectional plies laid at an angle of ± 45° which are bonded with an epoxy-compatible binder to each other. Drapability is improved compared to conventional NCF with plastic-scrim. Due to marginal ondulation there is a better utilisation of the fibre´s properties. Particular advantage: torsional layers could be done without offcut.
Calculated data for hand laminates with 35 volume percent fibres:
Resin consumption: 66 g/m², laminate thickness: 0.090 mm, laminate weight: 121 g/m²
Versions with Tenax® IMS65 for very robust and with Tenax® UMS40 for very stiff parts are available.
R&G is the official distributor of CARBOWEAVE spread tow fabrics. We are very pleased to now offer our customers the second generation of ultra lightweight carbon fibre NCFs, which show a difference in quality through their appearance quite clearly. The fibre distribution is much more homogenous, thus the fabric itself does not incorporate clusters of fibres or holes. The fibre orientation –this is the even more important criteria– is absolutely straight and virtually free of undulation. Furthermore an improved surface quality is achieved in comparison to its predecessing material.
