About this deal

Given the potentially safety critical nature of repairing a bike frame, it's important to point out that whilst the materials in the kit might be appropriate for a bike frame repair, it would be the responsibility of the person doing the repair to assess the suitability of such a repair and to carry it our it competently. When using higher tow numbers, the efficient infusion of resin is harder and leads to a greater chance of voids within the composite. Now that the frame was patched and painted, all that was left was to put the components back on and go ride!

With a very high strength-to-weight ratio, it delivers a high degree of rigidity and versatility in the repair of damaged structures. I. E it was a massive fall and hit a huge rock or they were cleaning it one day and just found the mark and stopped using it? Versatility: Some carbon fiber repair kits are designed for specific applications, such as aerospace or automotive repairs. The kit includes all of the necessary materials and equipment to repair a carbon fibre fishing pole.With yours, as long as the evidence of a crack is gone, I’d just laminate in a couple of layers of ‘sample’ fabric and sand smooth. Wrap at least twice round, maybe 3 times round, so that when it is slid inside the broken tube it will be a snug fit. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I picked up a 4" Framing Nail that went through both the Inner and Outer Wall of one of my Carbon Wheels.

The Peel-Ply is used when the finished repair needs to have a fine textured surface finish (ideal for bonding to) it is used as the last layer on the repair and is torn off after the resin has cured. People all over use this kit on car hoods, custom gauges, marine applications, RC parts, automotive trim, and more! Please be aware that some navigational and safety products may be dated, and as such a full refund may in some cases not be possible. Instructions: The repair kit will come with detailed instructions that guide you through the repair process. This can introduce more defects than would be seen with such techniques – or with prepreg – in the form of higher porosity levels and greater resin requirements.In some of the videos I watch they say to use a small piece of carbon fiber over the crack and lay a bigger piece of top of it but I think I want to lay like 5 or 6 layers around the whole thing and make them all roughly the same size. Using some of the abrasive paper (120 grit) ‘key-up’ the inside of the broken pole so that the surface is clean and scuffed ready for the repair to be applied. Requiring only competent practical skills and a couple of hours of your time to repair your broken or fractured fishing pole or rod so that it is as strong as it was before the damage occurred. So you’ve got a broken carbon fibre bike and now you want to repair it well this is the kit for you! This carbon Fibre repair kit is suitable for carbon fibre repairs and small mouldings projects, mouldings .

Providing the damage is not too extensive, such as in your case, and you understand and follow the process properly then there is no reason why you can't use this kit to repair a small area of damage on a carbon bike frame. Damage causes a slight reduction in load-carrying ability or a slight loss of carbon fibre laminate, then a replacement or repair may be more appropriate.

Matrix cracking is believed to occur as a result of low- and medium-energy impact in a direction parallel to the fibre arrangement. I don’t think that warrants a full wrap of carbon around the tube as it looks pretty superficial to me. The instructions from my kit said curing time would be 8 hours at 70 degrees (F), but I left it for 24 hours, just to be on the safe side.

It is ideally suited for carbon fibre repairs such as Car bodywork, fishing poles kayak and canoe race craft. Combining carbon fibre cloth and epoxy resin, it is used to create high-quality composite structures and is an excellent repair system. My advice would be to take your time, read (and reread) instructions, and watch videos on YouTube for tips on technique. Clean up any resin that has dribbled through to the outside of the repaired pole using abrasive paper. KIT INCLUDES: 2x2 Twill 3K Carbon Fiber Cloth (you choose the size) and Clear Epoxy Resin and Epoxy Hardener.Any excess resin is going to have to be sanded away later, so it’s in your best interest to keep it neat.
