Weight: 120 g/m² ( about 20 g/m )
Width: 120 mm
Flax and carbon fiber threads, both in the longitudinal direction, alternately woven with a polyester thread.
Construction 51% carbon and 49% flax
The fusion tape brings the best of two worlds: the very high stiffness of carbon and the light weight and damping of flax. Also both fibers have a very good compatibility, since they have similar thermal expansion coefficient and failure strain.
Price per meter.
In consultation with the manufacturer, the following has emerged:
The flax fiber swells slightly through the resin and thus absorbs more resin.
For pneumatic presses with 5 – 6 bar, it pushes the superfluous resin out again.
In the case of vacuum presses, attention must be paid to the resin quantity which is applied.
Apply the fibers on a flat plate and spread the resin well with a roll.
Apply approx. 390 g / m² of resin mixture to the UD flat (300 g / m²).
For flax biax (350 g / m²) apply approx. 490 g / m² resin mixture.
Apply approx. 160 g / m² of resin mixture to FD UD (120 g / m²).
