Dry carbon fabrics are not easy to handle and untie pretty easily once you manipulate them. Therefore, Blackfabric manufactures stabilized fabrics; dry fabrics with a stabilizing veil in one side that fix the fabric providing easy handling and cutting, reducing fabric waste due to fiber detachment and loosed yarns.

The lamination is done with Blackfabric’s inhouse industrial calender. A copolyamide web is laminated into one fabric surface. This process does not damage the fabric because it is done at low temperature due to the copolyamide veil melting temperature being around 100-120ºC. This light veil supposes approximately 2% of the fabric areal weight and does not affect the fabric performance in its future applications.
