Our skinning starter kit is the perfect entry into the world of cosmetic composites. The process involves laying a single skin of carbon fibre cloth over the prepared surface of your chosen part which could be made from a variety of materials such as plastic or wood. Following this and the build up of subsequent layers of our DIY SK76 Epoxy resin you are left with a part that whilst not made from carbon, does have a carbon fibre appearance and can be polished to high gloss to give great results.

As a process skinning is considered purely a cosmetic procedure and whilst it may add some additonal strength to a component it should only be selected for giving your parts that genuine carbon fibre look without the large price tag, not to add strength. The process has been used with great results for many automotive, motorcycle and hobby and leisure parts and has a wide range of potential applications.

Our starter kits are suitable for first time users or experienced users looking to complete a small project. The materials used within these are proffesional quality and are used inside many composites businesses. We are proud that our carbon fibre cloths and resins are UK made unlike many competitors.

Instructions
Please read our online guide to skinning a component for full instructons to help you on your way with the project. These can be downloaded from our website and kept by your side through out the process. Skinning as a process can yield great results if the correct process is followed allowing parts to have a genuine carbon fibre look. Please read thoroughly the instructions before commencing your project.
