Carbon Fiber Material

Hi all,
I'm looking to use the following carbon fiber in a frame build, anyone see any problems?

http://www.fibermax.eu/shop/product_...roducts_id=685

It states its stitched as opposed to woven? Will this make any difference on bike frame?

Regards

TB

TB, you need to request a lot more info from them. Find out what bonds with it, curing temperatures, etc. Stitched or weaved will not have as much effect as it's basically the same thing

I will be using a foam core to wrap the carbon around. Then use heat-shrink tape to compress the layers. Other than the heat gun I wont be using heat to cure. With that in mind what questions should I be asking them?

When you say "What it bonds with" is that the resin to be used? Sorry if thats a silly question I'm hunting for all info but its taking me time to learn everything.

Many Thanks

TB
