Carbon Fiber Tapes are narrow widths of woven fabric woven from 3K fibers with a strong selvage edge. This prevents fraying and unraveling of fabric at the edges. The narrow widths eliminate the cutting of wider carbon fiber fabrics down to size and increases accuracy and productivity. The tightly woven tapes offer uniformity and are highly drapable. They are suitable for use in wet layup, vacuum bagging and resin infusion manufacturing.
These tapes have been treated to be compatible with most thermosetting resins and to provide optimum adhesion between the fiber surface and the resin. Carbon Fiber Tapes exhibit the same properties as woven carbon fiber fabrics and, though the term “tape” implies it, they do not have an adhesive backing.
