The unidirectional carbon fibre reinforced plastic laminates are available in widths of 50, 75, 100, 120 and 150 mm and in thicknesses of 1-4 mm. They are available in three stiffnesses/strengths.

The laminates are made by combining standard, intermediate and high modulus carbon fibre grades with high performance epoxy resin using the pultrusion process.

CST Composites says typical applications for the strips are reinforcing members for wind turbine blades, building/bridge reinforcement, and marine structure stiffening.

The profiles can be supplied with roughened peel-ply finish giving excellent adhesion and minimal substrate preparation required prior to bonding. They are ready to use when combined with a suitable high strength adhesive.

CST Composites, based in Australia, manufactures filament wound carbon fibre and pultruded sections for the marine and Industrial markets.
