This tightly woven dry plain weave cloth (checkerboard pattern) uses Toray's T300 fiber and is often used in specialty applications but also seen in the aerospace and automotive industry. This prepreg is woven using 1K filament in the warp and fill directions yielding a very robust and stiff product. Since this is a "1k" material, you must be careful to not rely on this as a "bulking up" material as its ply thickness is only 0.006" thick!
Not only does this material provide a great cosmetic but also serves very well as structural support for composite structures and designs.
This prepreg is sold in ~4 Sqft. units. Common conversion for 4 Sqft. of material is 13.75" long x 42.19" wide. If you order more than one unit the material will be provided in continuous format.
