Due to their unique properties, carbon fiber plates are used in numerous applications over traditional materials such as aluminum, steel and titanium.
High strength and stiffness with low weight
Excellent fatigue resistance
Dimensional stability: Low to Zero CTE (Coefficient of Thermal Expansion)
Carbon Fiber Plate Designs
0°/ 90° (balanced)
This is the most common layup for carbon fiber plates, suitable for most applications. Balanced, 0°/90° plates offer excellent strength and stiffness in the axial and transverse directions. Our 0°/90° plates are evenly distributed, unidirectional carbon fiber prepreg, in the 0°, 90° orientation.
Quasi-isotropic plates are designed for loading in multiple directions. This layup is ideal for torsional or off-axis loading. Our quasi plates are evenly distributed, unidirectional carbon fiber prepreg, in the 0°, 90°, +/-45° orientation.
