Carbon Fibre

QUADCARBON manufactures carbon fibre of the following types:

QCC15P: weight: 136 g/m2, thickness: 0.15 mm. This is a specialized material for structures and parts where the strength/weight ratio is a critical design factor.

QCC3P: weight: 300g/m2, thickness: 0,3 mm. Highly used in the manufacture of parts due to its easy-handling and stability.

QCC35UD: weight: 200g/m2, thickness: 0.35 mm. An unidirectional fabric that guarantees an efficient design.

QCC3T22: weight: 300 g/m2, thickness: 0.3 mm. Twill fabric is a material that is perfectly adaptable to all corners and edges, providing high resistance where needed.

Kevlar® 29

QUADCARBON manufactures Kevlar® fabric of the following types:

QCK37P: weight: 267 g/m2. This type of Kevlar® fabric is mostly used in the manufacture of parts due to its easy-handling and stability.

QCK2P: weight: 209 g/m2. When protection combined with low weight is required, this high density Kevlar® is the most appropriate.

QCK25P: weight: 185 g/m2. This Kevlar® woven fabric is the lightest of all types, due to its low density.

QCK4P: weight: 461 g/m2. This heavy-duty Kevlar® is extensively used in the production of bulletproof vests.

Fibreglass and Special Fibres

QUADCARBON manufactures fibreglass and special fibres of the following types:
Fiberglass:

QCMAT 600: MAT fibreglass that weighs 600 grams per square meter, ideal for rugged work.

QCGV24P-C: fibreglass fabric that weighs 260 grams per square meter.

QCGV15P: the lightest commercial fibreglass, that weighs 180 grams per square meter.

Special Fibres:

QCCK3P: this fibre combines the extraordinary properties of Kevlar® with the low weight and the high strength of carbon fibres.
