ITALIANO

UNBLENDED #1

CARBON

RAL# 1028

This is our second frame in carbon. The first was a prototype, not sold to the the market and served to test bed to arrive at the Unblended. The whole frame is made in Italy, from the original designs for the moulds to produce the frame sections, to the actual assembly work. We have our own particular stratification of the carbon fibre layers to produce the sections, we use a sandwich of Toray T800 3k plain e T800 UD. The joint wrapping required experimentation and tests to arrive at the design we use now. The carbon we use for the wrapping is Toray T700 HM 3K prepreg.

To make an Unblended frame the production starts with the frame sections being formed in the moulds and being cured. Once the order arrives we start cutting and mitering the frame sections to the required size, these are placed into a jig and glued and then wrapped with carbon fibre – more info here. This way of building allows us to personalise the geometry based on the client. The frame takes about 2 days to make from start to finish and requires multiple visits to the oven for curing and at various stages. Once the frame is ready for painting it is sanded by hand to remove the surface gloss.
