Description

In terms of the structural integrity of a repair to bike frame tube (like a seat stay) the key principle is to add as much carbon to the damaged area as has been compromised by the damage. Versatility: Some carbon fiber repair kits are designed for specific applications, such as aerospace or automotive repairs. We include CARBON TAPE ( 220g/Sq M ) - This is 100mm wide and 50cm Length - as this is tape, you get much more stability without the weave becoming mis-aligned.

The dual syringe Gorilla epoxy seems good, - I just pulled the tape off a small patch I did with Gorilla and carbon cloth on some old carbon S-Works cranks I wore holes in from shoe rub. Full instructions are included with the kit to enable you to easily and quickly make a very strong repair.So, I sanded through 2-3 layers of carbon to create a ‘trough’ then shrink wrapped in 1 x UD and 1 x 90gsm 2k weave then sanded them flush. According to this DIY carbon fiber repair kit we stumbled across, cracks and abrasions in your frame are quick and easy repairs to do at home. Water may collect at interior voids, leading to the softening of the epoxy resin, swelling, deformation and eventual failure. Components are selected and included for ease of use wherever you are – be it a day at the race track, a dinghy, canoe or yacht races and in most cases, the full repair will probably be stronger than the original structure.

Wrap the good pole (the one that will go inside the broken one) with some of the shrink-tape, overlapping as you go. It works almost as a sticker: mix the content, spread it all over the patch and apply over the damaged carbon surface. I started at the top edge of the patch and gently pressed it down onto the base coat of epoxy, careful not to create any bubbles or ridges in the fabric.

In such instances, resultant cracks do not adversely affect the residual strength or stiffness of the composite, but can expose the material to environmental factors (e. Come join the discussion about bike parts, components, deals, performance, modifications, classifieds, trails, troubleshooting, maintenance, and more! Therefore, just mix according to the stated mix ratio and if you need more time (for a large repair) then you would need to potentially mix up multiple smaller batches. I looked at other carbon fiber repair kits like this one from Predator Cycling, and realized I needed shrink release tape — a highly-specialized type of tape used in composites. Any excess resin is going to have to be sanded away later, so it’s in your best interest to keep it neat.

Of course, this would be more for smaller repairs (or things like side puller reinforcements) and less for larger repairs. But we just put a long blog post out about how even just a paint touchup is long and labor-intensive. It turns out that I should have paid more attention to what was in the kit, as it was missing a crucial piece needed for the type of repair I was doing. Beyond the examples listed, other damage types may result from more general erosion of the composite as a result of moisture ingress, UV damage, abrasion and heat damage.

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. Bring the two halves of the pole or rod together if necessary and secure them for the duration of the repair.
