Repairability of Carbon Fibre Parts
CFRC does offer some repairability, but the application, as well as the vehicle maker’s recommendations, must be followed. When CFRC is moulded into shape, the mixture of the resins and carbon are considered the primary bond. It is within this state that the part will be the strongest. All repairs to CFRC are considered secondary bonds, meaning the integrity of the repair depends on the adhesive properties of the repair resins or adhesives. The application of the part is probably the most important consideration. CFRC parts made for structural purposes are generally replaced when damaged. There is no way to guarantee that the repaired part will have the same strength as the original part.
