carbon fibre

In composite laminates, carbon fibre is a high-grade way of increasing the stiffness and strength of the component and of reducing its weight. Equally more and more use is being made of its electrical and heat transfer properties. Carbon fibres are classified into three groups, according to their mechanical properties:

HT – high tenacity

IM – intermediate modulus

HM – high modulus

They are further characterised by the number of filaments (1K= 1000 filaments, 3K, 6K, 12K, 24K etc.), the filament diameter, the precursor and the size applied. Carbon fibres consist of approx. 96 % pure carbon.

Carbon fibre fabrics

Carbon fibre fabrics

Carbon fibre fabrics are characterised, amongst other things, by low weight, high drapability and ease of handling

Carbon fibre rovings

Carbon fibre rovings

Carbon fibre rovings for filament winding, pultrusion, hand lay-up processes or other special applications.

Carbon fibre UD non-crimp fabrics

Carbon fibre UD non-crimp fabrics

The carbon fibres are arranged in a single direction and are held together by a PES support thread.

Carbon fibre non-crimp fabrics

Carbon fibre non-crimp fabrics

Carbon fibre non-crimp fabrics are available in various fibre orientations and numbers of layers.

Hybrid fabrics

Hybrid fabrics

Hybrid fabrics combinate the characteristics of different fibres.
