Our PREMIUM 3k carbon fibre sheet and plate is manufactured using only genuine 100% 3k 2×2 twill carbon fibre fabric layers the whole way through the thickness. The carbon fibre is infused with a Lloyd’s Approved epoxy resin creating a high stiffness, high strength, light weight and aesthetically pleasing material.
Monolithic PREMIUM 3k carbon fibre sheet and plates offer excellent mechanical performance and machinability over STANDARD 12k and INDUSTRIAL 48k. Utilise PREMIUM 3k carbon fibre sheet when your application demands the highest possible mechanical performance and best machining characteristics. If your application requires an excellent balance between cost and performance then consider our STANDARD 12k range which maintains good mechanical performance and machinability at a much reduced cost where you can also select a 3k face sheet option.
The sheet possess a mirror like gloss finish on one side and a texture/matt finish on the other to enable optimum bonding. The gloss side of all our carbon fibre sheets are covered in a removable protective film that will help prevent marking/scratching and maintain the glossy surface finish when you’re cutting and finishing the sheet for your application.

Quality & Performance Guarantee
All our PREMIUM 3k carbon fibre sheet, plate and panel products are manufactured with Lloyd’s approved epoxy systems under strict controls with complete record of temperature and pressure throughout the entire manufacturing cycle.
All PREMIUM 3k carbon fibre sheets and plates have a glass transition temperature of 90oC i.e. maximum use temperature, where if higher temperature is required please shop for our HI-Temp range.
All of our structural carbon fibre sheets have been tested for mechanical strength and stiffness in accordance with British (BS EN ISO) and American (ASTM) standards.
Cutting, Shaping & Finishing
Carbon fibre laminates can be cut with CNC routers, waterjet and manual methods with appropriate cutting tools. We recommend carbide tools, abrasive type cutters, or diamond coated tools. Our carbon fibre sheets are easily edge sanded by hand or belt sanders allowing you to trim close and sand to final dimensions for a smooth and clean edge.
