Carbon fiber tape is ideal for selective reinforcement of carbon fiber fabrications, sleeve winding, lap joining, and repairs of cracks on graphite surfaces. Just like their wider carbon fabric counterparts, these standard modulus tapes offer higher ultimate tensile strength and stiffness-to-weight ratios than any other commonly available reinforcements.
Carbon fabric tapes are referred to as tapes only for their width and appearance—they are not adhesive backed. Their finished edges offer easier handling and a clean, finished appearance. They are ideal for use in auto racing, aerospace, competition marine, and light industrial applications.
To maximize the fiber properties, use with epoxy or vinyl ester resins. Polyester resin is also suitable, and is primarily used in cosmetic applications where higher strength-to-weight ratios are not a factor.
Carbon fiber tape is widely used in various fields like aerospace, auto parts, sports equipment, building reinforcements, decorations, etc.
l Low density with high tensile strength and high modulus
l Extra high temperature resistanceunder non-oxidizing environment
l Excellent electrical and thermal conductivity
l Good fatigue resistance, abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance
l Good electromagnetic shielding and X-ray permeability
l Insoluble and non-swelling in the organic solvent, acid, alkali
