From checkerboard to honeycomb, our Patterned Carbon Fabrics grab attention and make no compromise when it comes to champion strength- and stiffness-to-weight ratios. The patterned weave of these fabrics does not work against the ultimate strength properties of these fabrics. In fact, these First Quality patterned fabrics are as strong if not stronger than conventional weave styles. Patterned weaves feature more "floats," or areas where yarn being woven in one direction floats on top of yarn being woven in another direction. This makes for less bending in the yarn, further supporting the inherent superior strengths of the carbon fibers themselves. Use an epoxy resin system with carbon fabrics to fully realize their strength properties.
