Carbon Tape

The Uni Directional Carbon Tapes Series custom made (purpose built) for surfboard production and have become the industry standard for strengthening the rails and tail area of surfboards, the area’s most affected by high impact and back foot pressure.

The Carbon Hybrid Tapes uses a blend of woven non-crimp 3K Carbon flat-tow twine. This construction ensures a highest strength to flex ratio and doesn’t effect on the natural flex of the board. Moreover, the use of Uni-Directional weave pattern provides a high impact strength and allows for a kinetic flex pattern that will spring the tail back to its natural curve which creates extra drive and speed. The unidirectional tapes consist of a plain weave construction with at least 80% of the fabric weight in the 0° or Warp direction. This is used to add directional stability to structures in one specific direction.

The Uni Carbon Tapes have unique layup up where where the carbon is broken into three sections and is separated by E-Glass. When laminated this create three distinct row of carbon with clear lines in-between, which will show the colour of the foam when wet out. 

Industry Uses:

Tail Rails Manufactures place the Carbon Tapes on the back rail of surfboards to prevent the tails from shattering, strengthening the deck from foot compression and preventing rail cancer.

Bottom of the board The Carbon Tapes are also used on the bottom of the surfboards to create additional spring or pop out of the board. This is know as a kinetic flex, as the board is place under pressure while in transition, during or out of a turn the board springs back to its natural curvature and delivers additional speed.

Full Rail of the board The Carbon Tapes are often used along the full length of the surfboard rail with stringerless surfboards. This is to add additional strength or to replace the strength that a timber stringer would provide, therefore creating a Parabolic Frame. The Parabolic Frame helps prevents the board from twisting which increases the liveliness/responsiveness, this also creates a parabolic flex pattern that allows to board to deliver more drive, speed and power.

Lay-ups: The Carbon Tapes are used during the lamination process. The tapes are place on the foam before the cloth is laminated. Most manufactures mark the area they wish to place the Carbon Tapes, and brush a small amount of resin on the foam (to prevent to the Carbon Tapes from moving). The Carbon Tapes are then placed on the resin (making sure the resin has soaked through) and then continue to lay the cloth over the board and laminate as normal. 

Resin Compatibility: 

Shapers Unidirectional Carbon Tapes are compatible with both Epoxy and Polyester Resin.
