Carbon fiber material K value


K represents the number of carbon fiber monofilaments per share. K is actually the English abbreviation of thousand. 1K carbon fiber filament contains 1,000 monofilaments. Similarly, 3K is 3,000. Because the production process is very troublesome. The size of K is related to resistance. The larger the K number, the smaller the resistance. If it is used for heating, the smaller the resistance. The heating wire of the same length will generate more heat and power. If it is used for reinforcement, the larger the K number, the higher the strength.

Carbon fiber

As for 1k is more expensive than 3k because of the manual problem, the 1k process will be more complicated than 3k~

But 3k is the most cost-effective carbon fiber

Another point is that the grid sizes of 1k and 3k are different. The picture above is 1k plain weave size

The picture below shows 3k twill.
