UD Carbon strings on a carrier foil

Post by Cowboy0815 » Sun Nov 24, 2019 4:08 am

Hey folks,

maybe one of you can help me out. I am sourcing for UD carbon strings which are applied on some kind of carrier foil.
I have seen that the guys from Skevik skis use them. At least they did when they started their business. I don't know whether they still do.

Does anybody know where they get that material from? I have asked them by mail but I don't get an answer :-(

Maybe one of you knows the store where to buy them...

Thanks.

This stuff is often called "fused carbon". Here is an Australian shop (with reasonable worldwide shipping on smaller items) that carries a variety of tapes: https://shapers.com.au/non-woven-tapes/ ... ing&page=1

concerning UD carbon reinforcements, what are you putting into boards and skis in general?

For my last board, I purchased 300gm carbon band, 5cm wide that I wanted to put in as V in the tip and tail areas. During lay up, I realized that since the carbon was quite thick, it would probably leave ugly marks through the nylon top sheet, so I didn't use it.

Can somebody give a good advice on what's a good weight to put into boards for V shaped reinforcements?

Thanks!
