About this deal

Select another section of pole that fits comfortably inside the broken pole, possibly not the next pole down ensuring that there is at least a 0.

Completely stripping the frame of all components — including hardware like the derailleur hanger — made it easier to work on. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.If you're using the kit to make a cosmetic repair then it would be necessary to protect the resin by painting over it using either a clear or pigmented UV resistant paint. In some of the videos I watch they say to use a small piece of carbon fiber over the crack and lay a bigger piece of top of it but I think I want to lay like 5 or 6 layers around the whole thing and make them all roughly the same size.

Full instructions are included with the kit to enable you to easily and quickly make a very strong repair. If the damage leads to a decrease in the load-carrying ability of the part, then users are presented with a choice: to repair or replace that part. Before I rolled out the fabric for cutting, I cleaned my workbench, put away any unnecessary tools, and laid down a large, clean piece of cardboard. My question is, are the home repair kits with woven carbon fabric safe and effective for the patient and diligent? Clean up any resin that has dribbled through to the outside of the repaired pole using abrasive paper.I started at the top edge of the patch and gently pressed it down onto the base coat of epoxy, careful not to create any bubbles or ridges in the fabric.

Disclaimer : these carbon fibre repair kits should only be used as a superficial or temporary fix and should not be considered a long-term solution. The resin system has also been updated to EL2, please be aware that the mix ratio has now changed to 100:30 as displayed on the bottle. Versatility: Some carbon fiber repair kits are designed for specific applications, such as aerospace or automotive repairs.Given the potentially safety critical nature of repairing a bike frame, it's important to point out that whilst the materials in the kit might be appropriate for a bike frame repair, it would be the responsibility of the person doing the repair to assess the suitability of such a repair and to carry it our it competently. CONTENTS - This kit includes a 4 oz bottle of Epoxy, a 4 oz bottle of Hardener, and a 36" x 6" Carbon Fiber Cloth.

A tutorial video is included on this page and full printable instructions, including jig plans, are available in the downloads section.Ideally, the repaired area should match the mechanical and thermal properties of the original structure. Carbon fibre is a highly adaptive repair material suitable for the repair of existing carbon fibre structures. Bring the two halves of the pole or rod together if necessary and secure them for the duration of the repair.
