You are selling fancy stickers . That is all they are. Just decorative pieces. Some people like the look, which is fine, because everyone has individual tastes.

But all this discussion about the strength, resin/fiber ratio, etc., just is totally irrelevant at best, or maybe even misleading.

I totally disagree with your claims about "benefits" such as increased strength, heat resistance, sun resistance, etc. etc. You are just confusing the whole issue. Carbon fiber was developed as an ultralight and very strong alternative for steel and other metals in the fabrication of structural elements of high performance vehicles. Please do mix up the benefits of real carbon fiber structures with the decorative stickers that you are marketing.

The stickers just add weight, a layer of glue, and potential fit up problems to a vehicle. There is no functional or performance benefit whatsoever. It is purely cosmetic. When these stickers do eventually fall off, they will leave behind glue residues, and possibly damage to the original finish.

Now if you can make real carbon fiber body parts such as bonnets, doors, trunk lids, etc., that would be an appropriate topic to discuss the performance characteristics of your carbon fiber. And I would be very interested in sourcing some parts from you.

Regards,
Happy to assist you in this sir. We are in a brand new world, more advanced . Try our product, its not sticker sir, its real carbon fiber sheet with adhesive backing. We are manufacturers of advanced composites and this product which you are saying "sticker"is a layer of carbon fiber sheet tested for what I claim, please visit Senko Advanced Components, ????????? ::: Hasepro Corporation. I am not joking, the manufacturer has been a big success in japanese market and american markets and has used this stuff in WRC,
HASE PRO HAS A CAR IN WRC..

If you want to know if this is real carbon fiber, try to burn a piece and see for your self. I will be available on 0 9966660001 for your call on this. Say the world with your own mouth about your findings.

Davis . i believe what he meant was , rather than parts with carbon fibre coated stickers on them, he prefers the the 100% real thing , as the point of carbon fibre ( i.e. lightness) is lost when it is stuck additionally onto the existing trim

Greenhorn,
Yes, you are correct in your interpretation.

Off course the other problem I have is when benefits of real carbon fiber structures are mentioned or mixed with the marketing of carbon fiber stickers. I just feel that it is a bit disingenuous to talk up all the advantages of carbon fiber (when it used in structural parts), and then say the stickers are "real", thereby making the link between the performance of CF structures and cute CF stickers.

Like the way Davis mentions WRC. I can tell you that WRC rally cars do NOT use carbon fiber stickers.

Japanese and American markets have a large demand for real carbon fiber body panels including bonnets, doors, trunk lids, etc. There are a lot of WRXs & EVOs in the U.S. with these parts. In fact it is very common. The CF stickers are popular with kids with low cost rice rockets.

RedMM340, While I agree with you, there are people who prefer visual mods over performance mods. And as long as there is demand.....

No issue over here with visual mods. That is fine.

The problem I have is when people peddling visual mods make consumers think that they are getting a performance mod.

Demand should not be created by spreading misinformation.

Sorry for the silly question but -

What is the difference between carbon fibre sheet and carbon fibre cloth? I saw a few items on ebay and the terminology confused me.

Awaiting enlightenment
