About this deal

My advice would be to take your time, read (and reread) instructions, and watch videos on YouTube for tips on technique. The kit includes a high performance epoxy resin and special ultra-smooth high strength 1k carbon fibre cloth for the repair, as well as abrasive papers and polishing compound to produce a professional finish. 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. Update NRW has just sent us this revised version of their original statement: We know our visitor centres are a much-loved resource among locals and visitors from further afield and.

g., UV radiation, moisture ingression, erosion) as well as instances when the mechanical properties of the composite are exceeded. For a 'typical' repair you would often us a piece of cloth about 150mm wide and 150mm long which means you can get about 6 repairs out of the piece of fabric included.

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. However, it is important to be familiar with the material and the repair process before attempting to fix anything. I picked up a really cheap carbon Giant Anthem Advanced X with a crack in the frame that I really bought for the parts but wanted to see if I could repair it myself. Providing the damage is not too extensive, such as in your case, and you understand and follow the process properly then there is no reason why you can't use this kit to repair a small area of damage on a carbon bike frame. The original ‘crack’ just looks superficial to me (like a paint chip in a metal frame) , if it was my frame i would just ride it as usual without attempting any kind of repair or giving it a second thought.

Right now it looks like you’ve sanded about 6 layers of paint and just a couple of layers or carbon. So, I sanded through 2-3 layers of carbon to create a ‘trough’ then shrink wrapped in 1 x UD and 1 x 90gsm 2k weave then sanded them flush. It is ideally suited for carbon fibre repairs such as Car bodywork, fishing poles kayak and canoe race craft. The instructions from my kit said curing time would be 8 hours at 70 degrees (F), but I left it for 24 hours, just to be on the safe side. Conversely, high-energy impact across a large area can lead to damage inside the structure, in spite of there being no external damage.Everything about the kit is carefully thought-out to make 'on location' repairs as easy as possible with the quality of the materials ensuring the repair will probably be stronger than the undamaged part. It’s a clear cloat with tiny beads of colored glass in it that are supposed to shine brightly in direct sunlight. All materials are supplied in high quality, re-sealable containers and shipped in protective packaging. Damage is negligible in terms of the structural implications, then a cosmetic repair with an appropriate epoxy repair resin can be made.
