Materials we use

Once you see what carbon fiber can do for your business, there’ll be no turning back.

The main advantage of fiber composite material is that its properties are superior to those of its constituent components, being stronger, more efficient, and durable.

To create top-quality composite carbon products, we use mostly these materials

Dry and Prepreg carbon fiber

Carbon fiber is an ultra-light, strong and prestigious material, the fibers of which measure only about 5-10 micrometers in diameter and are mostly composed of carbon atoms. It has a high degree of stiffness and tensile strength and is temperature and chemical resistant.

We mostly use plain and twill weave. Plain weave is less pliable but holds together well when cut. Twill weave, on the other hand, runs straighter for greater lengths and so is more pliable and stronger than plain weave. Depending on the customer’s specifications and demand, we use other weaves, too.

Carbon fiber composites are one of the most popular composites because they have many unique properties including extreme strength, lightness, original and prestigious design. They are driving innovation in various markets from aerospace to healthcare, military, competitive sports, and racing cars, motorbikes, and bicycles.

PREPREG CARBON FIBER

For production of Carbonin products we mostly use prepreg carbon fiber fabric that is pre-impregnated with a resin. This results in a more even resin distribution, giving increased strength and durability. What’s more, there are no issues with pinholes in the finished material.

The weights we most frequently work with are: 160, 200, 245, 380, 420, 600 gsm. Depending on the customer’s specifications, we can deal with other weights, too.

DRY CARBON FIBER

For working with dry carbon fiber, we use epoxy resin because it has the highest ultimate strength and the lightest weight of the resins used in composites.

The carbon fiber weights we most frequently work with are: 160, 200, 245, 380, 420, 600 gsm. Depending on the customer’s specification, we can deal with other weights, too.

After the manufacture process, the carbon fiber parts are polished to a shiny finish without the need for any extra varnishing. Twill and plain weave patterns offer a unique look that can be achieved only with carbon fiber.

Glass Fiber

Glass fiber is a very popular fiber used in composites because it’s lightweight, moderately tensile and has compressive strength. And, just as important, it’s not as expensive as carbon fiber and is easy to work with, too.

We use it in our avio fiber products. The name avio comes from aviation as the same production technology is widely used for covering the open structures on aircrafts. It’s a great alternative to classic fiberglass products.

Avio fiber products are more price affordable than carbon fiber products, yet stronger, lighter, and much more flexible than classic fiberglass products on the market. Additionally, they fit perfectly and don’t break or crack easily.

Fiberglass - Avio Fiber

The reason for that is high quality synthetic fiber with a tighter fiber density in combination with epoxy resin. Though avio fiber products are still not as strong and light as carbon fiber products, they are the best-known alternative. To ensure optimal strength and flexibility, all Carbonin avio fiber products are reinforced with carbon fiber at the edges and places of fitment (where the parts are fitted using bolts).

 

The weights we most frequently work with are: 160, 200, 245, 380, 420, 600 gsm. Depending on the customer’s specifications, we can deal with other weights, too.

All our avio fiber parts come in a white gel coat that offers a smooth and easy finish, enabling us to easily upgrade and personalize the final look with spray paint and/or decals designs.

Carbon Kevlar

Carbon Kevlar

Kevlar’s main advantages are higher impact and abrasion resistance than carbon fiber and low compressive strength. But it’s difficult to cut or machine, therefore we use it for reinforcement of carbon fiber parts where extra protection is needed, like frame protection, swingarms, engine covers, and more.

Sustainable Materials

From the first Carbonin products onwards, our vision has always been to produce lighter and stronger composite products that fit perfectly and cause the lowest possible environmental impact through their manufacture.

Currently, we are exploring ways to incorporate eco-friendly fiber composite materials into our products and potentially transition to products made 100% from natural fiber composites in the future.

We are looking for a sustainable, light, rigid, strong, vibration-absorbing natural composite that will meet environmental and end-customer requirements while achieving the business goals of our partners.

Currently, our research and prototype team is working on projects testing two different natural fiber materials. We plan to have the first products developed and produced in the next few months.

Do not hesitate to contact us for support in your research and development process.

We’re happy to share our knowledge and expertise and work with you to develop an environmentally friendly and business-successful application of sustainable fiber composite materials.
