Carbon fabric tapes
Carbon tape fabrics are narrow fabrics with a width normally smaller than 300 mm. These tapes can be woven, braided or slitted from materials of larger width. In general there are two types of carbon tape materials: Uni-directional (UD) tapes and Bi-directional (BD) tapes. Uni-directional Carbon Tape is made up of long lengthwise oriented carbon fiber bundles that are held together in weft direction by a thin yarn, mostly E-glass or polyester. A Bi-directional carbon tape has also the lengthwise carbon bundles, but now held together by a thicker carbon yarn. Carbon tape materials are applied to specific places of a product to get reinforcement where and in the direction that is needed. Our carbon fabric tapes are available as bi-directional (BD) tape in 200, 250, 370 and 530 g/m2 in 100% carbon and as uni-directional (UD) tape in 125, 220, 250, 300, 330, 340 and 380 g/m2. Tape width varies from 10, 25, 30, 40, 50, 65, 75, 100 up to 150 mm.
Carbon tape fabric is typically used for tubes and bar wrapping and constructions to finish seams and corners.
Carbon tape materials can be applied for model building, construction parts, sports equipment, boat building and automotive parts.
