Not sure what to do? We can guide you through our range of products and help you select the most suitable composite materials for your project. Here you can review different techniques for handling composite materials and prepare your order regarding your selected working technology.


Hand lay-up

Classic technology for hand lamination of carbon fiber fabrics and epoxy resin.

Hand lay-up

Before you start make sure that the temperature in your workshop is above 20°C, because the resin needs room temperature in order to be cured.

Required tools - brush, nitrile gloves and mask.

Hand lay-up is a classic technology for carbon manufacturing of simple shapes, where you can use a physical detail as a positive mould for manufacturing of a carbon fiber copy. You don't need vacuum pump or any vacuum consumables for this technology, but you need a bit of hand treatment afterwards.

Step 1:

You need to prepare your detail for the release agent. Clean the surface with degreaser or acetone - it depends if the detail is made from plastic, metal or other material. When the detail is clean you are ready to apply release agent - in most cases you should use standard PVA release agent. It is for single use, so when it is dry it will stick to the carbon detail. It is water solublе, so when the part is ready you can wash it with water.

Carbon fiber skinning

Classic technology for carbon fiber wrapping of details.

Carbon fiber skinning

Before you start make sure that the temperature in your workshop is above 20°C, because the resin needs room temperature in order to be cured.

Required tools - brush, nitrile gloves and mask.

Carbon fiber skinning is the perfect method for wrapping details with carbon fabric. Perfect cosmetic finish without the need of moulds and tools.

Step 1:

You need to prepare and clean the surface with degreaser or acetone - it depends if the detail is made from plastic, metal or other material. When the detail is clean you are ready to apply the first layer of resin. It depends if you want to use Basecoat - it is special epoxy mixture, which is precolored in black and has delayed hardening of ca.2 hours. This delay will allow you to cover the entire surface with the Basecoat and lay the carbon fabric easily onto the surface.

Composite mould manufacturing

Classic mould for manufacturing of composite parts and details

Composite mould manufacturing

In order to manufacture your own product from carbon fiber or fiberglass you need first to have a proper mould (negative) from a real model (positive). 

Required tools - brush, nitrile gloves and mask.

Combine fiberglass weavers and mats with polyester resin and gelcoat is the most common mould to start with.

Step 1:

You need to prepare a physical model (part) for the mould. It can be 3D printed, CNC cut or hand made from different materials. Start with cleaning and degreasing the model. Beware if the model is made from soft foam (styrofoam) - don't apply agressive chemicals onto it. If the surface is not smooth and even you should make it perfect before everything else. The better the model is - the better the mould would be.
