This chopped carbon fibre tow is made from 100% virgin carbon fibre tow, cut (or chopped) to consistent length of 12mm. This specification of chopped tow is ideal for use in cosmetic projects such as our Forged Carbon River Table and other resin casting projects. Often the look seen with this type of chopped tow is referred to as forged carbon fibre. You can see this fibre in use on our Forged Carbon Fibre River Table. The forged carbon look can also be great in a range of other casting projects.

Being a virgin material made from new, consistent feed-stock, the material is extremely consistent and does not have the irregularities or inclusions characteristic of recycled chopped tow. For those wishing to create a cosmetic 'forged carbon' appearance, this consistency could be regarded an advantage or disadvantage, depending on the type of forged carbon appearance you want to create.

Units of sale

This chopped tow carbon fibre it is sold by weight and is available in 150g, 750g and 1.5kg pack sizes. Please choose the pack size you require from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.

Processing

Chopped tow carbon fibre is compatible with all common resin systems including epoxy, vinylester and polyester.

River Tables: Chopped tow carbon can be used in river tables and intricate detail around wood to create the unique forged carbon effect.

Resin Casting: Chopped tow carbon fibre can be used in resin casting in both silicone and plastic moulds intricate details as the small fibres wet out easily and get into the fine gaps that may otherwise bridge and become resin rich or voids.

Surface coating: Chopped tow carbon fibre can be used to make worktops and other surfaces albeit often it is quicker and easier to back fill it into a mould to get a smooth finish straight away once cured. This is similar to how we did it on our river table albeit on a larger scale.

Suitable Applications

As a high performance, environmentally friendly recycled material chopped tow carbon fibre is suitable for a wide range of application including:

  • Cosmetic feature castings
  • River tables
  • Cosmetic Surface coating
  • Casting resin reinforcement

Safety

This product is made up of chopped strands and particles that are small and will become airborne when the material is scooped, moved or mixed. Always wear protective gloves and a dust mask when handling this product in its raw state.
