Hi,I really like your new chair...How many carbon-layers did you use? And how much g/m2?Is it stiff and durable enough?Cheers Peer
Hi peerFor this chair I used just the materials that i still had in my house. So just a quik check it out job.. ;-)I used plain weave carbon 180 gram. 6 layers. I also laminated some leftover strips of carbon in the "bent"of the chair to give it extra strenght. The chair is for sure strong and stiff enoug. (till now i dind't sand or so, because first it's to cold outside, and epoxy takes some time to come to it's max strenght.)If I would make it right from start I would take: 200/230 twill weave carbon. nice optical, and easier to bend. (you could make it full carbon, as i did.. but you also could ad some extra normal glass in the middle to give it some extra thickness. the chair I made is half so thin as an original)7/8 layers is strong enough and will last for ever. As outside layer I would use a layer of normal fiberglass, twill weave. This would be a perfect sanding layer.After the sanding, a clear resin coat.. let it harden for a while, after that go for that sanding/polishing..Succes, keep us informedtalk soon,david
Thanks a lot for your detailed answer!Peer
