FullSix carbon fiber Monocoque Tail sections are structural components used in professional racing to reduce weight. A replacement for stock aluminum subframes, Fullsix monocoque tail sections utilize its' proprietary Autoclave Composite Monocoque (ACM) technology to achieve a 75% weight reduction! A FullSix carbon fiber monocoque tail section weighs only 1.6 kg (3.5 lbs) compared to 7.0 kg (15.4 lbs) for a stock aluminum subframe.
About the Product
Fullsix by CDT is the lightest, strongest, most flexible and most beautiful carbon fiber available and is manufactured with the same raw materials, production processes and even personnel as MotoGP, World Superbike, Ducati Factory and Formula 1 bodywork.
FullSix Carbon Fiber begins with pre-pregnated carbon fiber ("pre-preg carbon") which is carbon fiber fabric that is saturated with epoxy resin and must be carefully stored in sub-zero temperatures. Pre-preg carbon is stronger, lighter and more consistent than non-pre-preg carbon fabric (which has resin applied during the production process). To create bodywork, the pre-preg carbon is vacuum-bagged, autoclaved and clear-coated. The vacuum-bagging process uses suction to make the pre-preg carbon conform exactly to the shape of a part mould. The moulded part is placed in an autoclave (think of it as an industrial strength pressure cooker) and subjected to carefully calibrated heat and pressure to cure the part. The end result is a perfectly shaped carbon fiber part that uses an absolutely minimal amount of epoxy resin yet is superior to any other carbon fiber piece.
Finally, the part needs to be given a perfect finish. The part is magnetized, sprayed with clear-coat powder pellets and baked in oven. This causes the powder pellets to melt and penetrate the carbon fiber, allowing for a deep, smooth, pit-free, super-shiny finish. This kind of clear-coating process is used for parts like fine jewelry.
The bottom line: FullSix Carbon Fiber is the best quality carbon fiber on the market for motorcycle fairings.
