How to produce carbon fiber?
Three methods to create parts in carbon fiber
- Wet draping. In wet layup, the fiber is cut out and placed in the mould, then coated with resin by brush, roller or spray gun. …
- Prepreg lamination…
- Resin Transfer Molding (RTM)
Carbon fiber. Carbon fiber consists of extremely fine fibers, about five to ten micrometers in diameter, and is composed primarily of carbon atoms. These are aggregated into microscopic crystals that are aligned more or less parallel to the long axis of the fiber.
An alternative is to replace the damaged part. Bike shop prices for a new carbon fork are around 350 euros and frames around 1500 euros. Even a small part, like the seatpost, can cost 200 euros.
A crack in the carbon fiber fabric can lead to frame failure, resulting in the gear lever anchors breaking or the saddle or chain stay being destroyed.
