Current Inc. manufactures carbon fiber sheet, tubing, rod, and molded parts. Our carbon fiber combines great strength with lightweight, making the material ideal for motorsports, aircraft, and marine equipment.
Carbon fiber is available in five different weaves to meet your every need.
- Plain Weave:
Fibers are interlocked in an alternating pattern over and under each other. Plain weave fabrics have good stability and are ideally suited for flat panels and minimal contour radii.
- Satin Weave:
Satin weaves are typically available in four, five, or eight harness satin. The satin weaves do not intersect at every tow. Instead the tows will float over several intersections and interlock under one. Satin weaves are easily draped to conform to difficult parts.
- Twill Weave:
Twills are available in 2x2, 3x3, and 4x4 twill weaves. The “twill line” or diagonal rib characterizes the weave. Each tow warp end floats over two or more picks. Twills are very pliable and have excellent drape while maintaining stability.
- Basket Weave:
A variation of the plain weaves, the multiple warp ends fill tows of yarn and are woven together while being alternately interlocked over and under each other to make heavy fabrics.
