All materials are supplied in high quality, re-sealable containers and shipped in protective packaging. I will be attempting to lay carbon fiber on the inside of the tube if its possible to get in there from the headtube opening to make it extra strong. KIT INCLUDES: 2x2 Twill 3K Carbon Fiber Cloth (you choose the size) and Clear Epoxy Resin and Epoxy Hardener.

Matrix cracking is believed to occur as a result of low- and medium-energy impact in a direction parallel to the fibre arrangement.Since I had to completely disassemble my bike to do the repair, I decided to take the opportunity to repaint the frame as well. However, many kits are versatile enough to be used on a variety of surfaces, including bikes, sporting equipment, and more. This guide is intended to be a helpful resource for someone considering repairing their carbon frame at home. The kit includes a high performance epoxy resin and special ultra-smooth high strength 1k carbon fibre cloth for the repair, as well as abrasive papers and polishing compound to produce a professional finish. If the ‘crack’ has gone, I probably wouldn’t even worry about a repair considering the minimal material you’ve removed as it might just have been paint damage.

In such instances, cracks may occur which involve both fibre and matrix damage as well as delamination, resulting from impact, but also excessive loading . My advice would be to take your time, read (and reread) instructions, and watch videos on YouTube for tips on technique. We would recommend measuring the actual temperature with an infra-red thermometer or similar to be sure how hot it actually gets. Right now it looks like you’ve sanded about 6 layers of paint and just a couple of layers or carbon.If the damage leads to a decrease in the load-carrying ability of the part, then users are presented with a choice: to repair or replace that part. The Rapid Repair Resin used in this starter kit has modest UV resistance but like many epoxy resins it would potentially be discoloured slightly by long-term exposure to UV light.

Everything about the kit is carefully thought-out to make 'on location' repairs as easy as possible with the quality of the materials ensuring the repair will probably be stronger than the undamaged part. My question is, are the home repair kits with woven carbon fabric safe and effective for the patient and diligent?It wasn’t broken all the way round so even with the bulk of the cracked fibres sanded out it still had enough stability to stay in shape during repair. Here’s my frame repair thread from 5 years ago, still going strong… I link it every time this topic comes up now. I made templates from paper before cutting the sheet of carbon, which allowed me to find the perfect size and shape.
