favorite source for 4-6oz carbon cloth?
« on: March 29, 2020, 05:08:34 PM »
Where are you all getting it and what is it costing per sq yard?  Looking to buy several yards at once

It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I don't use.

Soller composites generally has the widest selection and the best prices.
Foote 10'4X34", SIC 17.5 V1 hollow and an EPS one in Hood River. Foote 9'0" x 31", L41 8'8", 18' Speedboard, etc. etc.

Thx for the tip on Soller, good carbon prices.

Iím frustrated by the need to order from 2 or 3 places to get all I need. I guess itís good to avoid a monopoly but I end up ordering from at least 2 places to make a board.

Fiberglass Source has been my recent go to for glass and epoxy (their Apex is good and cheap.) I still stop in at Fiberglass Hawaii in Ventura when Iím up there just to buy more local and browse.

Most people that glass a bit wind up with a favorite resin, and it's rarely the same one as other folks. That's one of the reasons you can't get all the stuff in one shot. I can't get Resin Research epoxy at Fiberglass Hawaii. I wind up using other stuff in Maui and it bugs the shit out of me, but I'd pay more for the shipping than the resin.

Yeah, I totally get it.

While Iíve done 2 or 3 boards with that FGH Aluzine resin I really donít love it. I donít understand why they donít have a better formulation. Hit it with Additive F if you hope to get any hot coat done for sure.
