Carbon tapes are ideal for those smaller jobs like tube winding, lap joining, making CF angle and repairing cracks in composite surfaces. CF tapes are woven in a method to prevent fraying on the edges, the tow is looped back to ensure that that the tape holds in place at all times.

How much epoxy resin will I need?
To completely wet out 1m² (1m x 1m) of carbon fiber cloth you will require about 230 to 270g (230-270ml) of mixed epoxy resin. E.g. If you were to make a carbon fiber sheet 1m² with a thickness of 1mm to 1.25mm you would use three layers of 200g carbon fiber and a total of 690 to 810g of resin. Please note this is only a rough guide and the volume of resin used is totally dependant on the techniques used (vacuum bagging, wet lay-up, press set, etc).
