    Twill Weave Veneer

    twill weave carbon fiber veneer Carbon fiber veneer is all about the appearance of the carbon fiber. In a 3k weave, each strand consists of 3000 individual fibers. The fine appearance of these fibers is what gives carbon fiber its unique look. To produce a really beautiful veneer, you need to clearly show the fibers and the texture of the carbon. DragonPlate veneer is the highest quality, most beautiful veneer on the market.

    DragonPlate is manufactured by a proprietary process which produces a veneer with a crystal clear face. The veneer comes off the tool with the carbon fiber embedded in this optically clear surface layer with the fiber structure very clearly visible. We do not need to apply a secondary clear coat.

    Cheaper veneers are manufactured with simpler processes that do not produce this deep clear layer, so the carbon fiber appears flattened or crushed, the fine carbon fiber texture is not as well defined, and the surface is not as reflective. Traditional vacuum bagging processes and autoclaving prepreg simply cannot produce this finish.

    As a result of our thick epoxy surface layer, the DragonPlate carbon fiber veneer laminate measures a full .018" thick compared to other paper-thin (.010") veneers. Unlike these cheaper veneers, DragonPlate can be applied over any color without the background showing through. DragonPlate carbon fiber veneer has a richer, deeper, and more lustrious appearance, and can be easily applied.

    cheaper brand carbon fiber veneerCheap thin twill veneer allows light to pass through. This allows appearance of substrate to show through.

    DragonPlate Veneer is capable of forming to a cylindrical diameter as small as 1 inch! DragonPlate Carbon Fiber Veneer can be easily cut with shears or heavy scissors and can be sanded to produce a smooth edge. Our carbon fiber veneers come ready to install with contact cement; or for quick and easy installation, we optionally offer a veneer with high quality 3M self adhesive backing, already affixed. Simply peel and stick!

    Each carbon fiber sheet is available in standard gloss, scratch resistant matte, and texture finishes on one side, with a texture finish on the other side, creating an ideal bonding surface.
