Leading Manufacturer, Supplier & Retailer of BIAS CUT CARBON FIBER FABRIC, S-Glass Cloth, Fiberglass Tape, Braided Fiberglass Tape and Fiberglass Braided Sleeve.
We are providing 2.4 oz. and 2.9 oz. carbon fabrics with a bias cut option. The illustration below will give you a visual on how we do this. The result is a parallelogram. If you order a 1-foot piece, the short side will measure 12 inches and the long side 55 inches. The most critical dimension is the 8.25 inches perpendicular to the 55 inch cut edge. Model aircraft builders typically use this cut on the leading edge of their wings to carry torsion loads. To create a d-box, wrap the bias cut carbon from the top of the spar, around the leading edge to the bottom of the spar. The spar acts to close the d-box. To determine the amount you need to order, measure the distance around the leading edge and divide by 8.25". Round up to the next whole number and order that many feet. For example: If you measure 7" and you are making two wing d-boxes, divide 14" by 8.25" = 1.7 or 2 feet. You will receive a piece 24" on the short side, 55" on the long side and 16.5" perpendicular to the long side. See the diagram below:

Aramid fibers are typically gold in color and require very sharp shears for cutting. Kevlar is DuPont's trade name for aramid. The best applications are where toughness is desired. Aramid is difficult to sand and is adversely affected by UV light so it is often buried under fiberglass or other material. Values shown are based on typical fiber data and should be used as a guide, not a specification. (Kevlar® is a Registered Trademark of Dupont®)
