Twill weave carbon fiber cloth is likely the most recognizable carbon fiber weave in the industry. It is used in many cosmetic and decorative applications, but also has great functionality. It has both formability and stability. As the 2x2 name implies, each tow will pass over 2 tows then under two tows.
Carbon fiber is preferred as it has the highest tensile strength of all reinforcing materials. The dry 3K 2x2 Twill Weave Fabric gives the classic carbon fiber look and conforms to complex parts better than plain weave.
It boasts a combined strength and stiffness-to-weight that is unmatched in the composites industry. In fact, when looking at strength to weight comparisons, carbon fiber outperforms most traditional building materials.
Carbon fiber can be found everywhere from auto racing to aerospace. Its unmatched strength and weight, along with its modern cosmetics, have made it a widespread favorite in today's composite industry. Highly desirable for modern composite parts in the aerospace, auto, marine, and sporting goods industries.
This is a first quality commercial grade 3K carbon fiber fabric and is made in the USA. 3K means each tow/bundle is constructed of 3000 filaments. The bundles are woven together to form the fabric, which makes it a strong, yet lightweight material.

When purchasing multiple yards of the same fabric you will receive one continuous length of that material. It will be rolled, covered in plastic, and shipped in a cardboard tube to keep the fabric in its first quality condition.
