Hello

Does anyone know where I can buy carbon from? I’d like to try and make a blade for myself but don’t know where to buy any carbon?

Thanks

sollercomposites.com.

You need something around 200gsm, normally 3K tow.Fiber type is not that important,as long as it is standard modulus.They also have a 12K spread tow fabric that is similar to
the Textreme fabric.Carbon/Kevlar is available also.

Chinese Carbon is usually not much cheaper because they have to buy the carbon tow from
Japanese companies(at least for the high quality stuff),plus the shipping is expensive.Carbon should be
rolled/not folded and is therefore bulky to ship.

I use composite envisions . They sell some smaller quantity on eBay. They have everything from standard carbon , ALC, ZLC and even Textreme.  For epoxy I use Aeropoxy . It’s expensive but last a long time and is the right viscosity to keep the weight down

Great information about website but since you are not speaking English after that, it is hard to understand which items to buy. 

Can you provide link to an exact item on this website that I can order, that would help.
I am looking for a carbon sheet not composite to start with.
So do these sheets are solid sheets of carbon or flexible and get rolled for shipping ?
Thanks 


My experience is the carbon always comes as flexible fiber.  You wouldn't want a solid sheet...blade would be too stiff and hard

Please let me know if I can be of assistance.

Here is a  Taiwanese lead for  actual ALC  fabric:


Just to be clear, Arylate fiber is Vectran.The problem for us small quantity users  is that ALC fabric is of very limited use, so it is not commonly sold by retailers.Sometimes you get lucky and the weaver has a short roll(end of production run),or fabric with small flaws for sale at a bargain price.
