  • CARBON FIBER VENEER...

    Carbon fiber veneer is all about the appearance of the carbon fiber. In a 3k weave, each strand consists of 3000 individual fibers. The fine appearance of these fibers is what gives carbon fiber its unique look. To produce a really beautiful veneer, you need to clearly show the fibers and the texture of the carbon. CarbonMakers veneer is the highest quality, most beautiful veneer on the market.

    Cheaper veneers are manufactured with simpler processes that do not produce this deep clear layer, so the carbon fiber appears flattened or crushed, the fine carbon fiber texture is not as well defined, and the surface is not as reflective. Traditional vacuum bagging processes and autoclaving prepreg simply cannot produce this finish.

Our deep epoxy surface layer develops the full depth and beauty of the carbon fiber structure preserving a 3-D appearance.

    CarbonMakers verneer shows a crystal clear reflection superimposed on the clearly visible texture of the carbon fiber.

    A composite plate (panel) is a plate made out of composite materials (a resin and a reinforcing fiber). The mechanical properties are more detailed than a normal isotropic plate because it has different material properties in different directions. Composite panels are light weight, strong and offer very high stiffness. Most of the products we offer are available same day.

     Carbon Makers offers a wide range of carbon fiber tubes for many different applications. Our tubes are manufactured by us here in the UK, giving us complete control over the characteristics and quality. If you do not see what you need, contact us to discuss manufacturing tubes to your custom specifications. See also our Tube Connector Systems and Kevlar Tubes.

    Roll wrapped prepreg carbon fiber tubes are constructed using multiple wraps of twill and/or unidirectional fabrics. Rolled tubes are ideal for applications that require the highest bending stiffness and lowest weight, such as automation robotics, telescoping poles, idler rollers, and UAV components. Additionally, the longer length versions of these tubes have options for high and ultra high modulus carbon fiber, as well as choices for outer fabrics, such as colored Kevlar fabrics. The standard finish is cello-wrapped gloss, but a smooth sanded finish is also available.

    Braided carbon fiber tubes are comprised of carbon fiber braid and unidirectional fabrics. They offer excellent torsional characteristics, as well as crush strength, and are ideal for high torque applications. These carbon tubes are available in round, rectangular and square and can be axially optimized or made with higher modulus carbon fibers for increased bending stiffness. The standard for these tubes is our proprietary natural surface finish, showing a wet shiny appearance. Many can also be cello-wrapped for a glossier look, or even peel ply texture finish for improved bonding.

    Our large diameter carbon fiber tubes are comprised of rolled bi-directional woven carbon fiber. This tubing is designed for large applications, such as telescope projects or light weight drums. Our carbon fiber large tubes come with a texture finish on both the inside and outside for easy bonding and painting.
