Carbinge is a continuous hinge made of woven carbon fiber in cured resin. The hinge pin can be steel or other material depending on intended use.
Carbinge is the new standard in hinges with unique advantages such as strength and strength to weight ratio, durability, ease of application, corrosion resistance, esthetics, and more.
We recommend Carbinge for virtually any continuous hinge needed in aero and marine applications or other structures including mobile homes, furniture, cabinets, etc. They are ideal for trim tab fasteners, upper/lower cowl attachments, and other similar aircraft applications.
Carbinge can be trimmed easily with any carbide blade (after removing the steel pin) and can be shaped and/or smoothed with a file or with sandpaper.
The following steps are the recommended procedure for attaching Carbinge to any composite surface:
