CARBON COMPOSITE MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT
MATERIAL DETERMINES THE PRODUCT QUALITY LEVEL
for carbon bicycle components There are many crucial elements we must keep in minds: carbon fiber Tensile strength, Tensile Modulus TOW, FAW and the epoxy system. Tensile strength is breaking strength.Tensile modulus is the term used to describe the stiffness.
TOW refers to the number of carbon filaments packed together on one spool. It’s also the primary component of the UN-DIRECTIONAL (UD) sheets of fabric. FAW refers to the fiber’s areal weight.
Along with the specific epoxy resins, these systems establish approximately 50% of the product’s quality and price.
Other 50% are determined by the design of the structure layout schedule, lay-up schedule and manufacturing methods
What is the most appropriate material to use for various products?
What is the best way to select the Tensile strength, Tensile Modulus TOW, FAW, and Our focus is PROPER This is a highly technological and professional concept. Every product has its own functions and uses.
Therefore, we require different materials to get the best results , and also the correct manufacturing costs.
Based on years of research and testing We have decided to select carbon fiber with 4800-5500Mpa strength, 220-300Gpa modulus as well as 12k TOW, from carbon fiber makers such as Toray, Japan.
We have also developed the epoxy system we have developed as well as an FAW systems to prepare our prepregs. Both are also the most important aspects of our products.
