General Information

What is a composite?

Composite materials, often shortened to composites, are engineered or naturally occurring materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties. These properties remain separate and distinct at the macroscopic or microscopic scale within the finished structure.

What are the composites we REALLY care about?

Generally Dear and Delicate ones: Carbon Fibre, Kevlar, Aramid and Fibreglass

Where do you find composites?

Modern passenger vehicles, money clips, aircraft, the coolest bicycles (and some others), golf clubs, ATV body parts, motorcycles, sail and surf boards, boats, kitchens/architecturally modern homes and businesses and MANY MORE.

Fun Facts

Carbo-Lift is:

  • An opaque gel, tenacious, does not off gas, actions can be halted immediately by use of water
  • Sensitive to temperature and prefers warm weather 24 degrees C + (although it will work down to 2 degrees C, if you have all the time in the world!).

What materials have been tested and are effective with Carbo-Lift?

  • Carbon fibre, Kevlar, s-glass, fibre glass, Titanium, Aluminum, Steel, and plastic automotive bumpers.
  • Carbo-Lift especially likes to show off its skills when metals and carbon fibre are joined together and the finish needs to be safely and easily removed with minimal supervision without disturbing the adhesives.

What are some industry applications?

  • Bicycle frames and parts, composite hulls for canoes and rowing skulls, surf/sail boards, car fenders, carbon fibre tuning parts for cars and motorcycles, aircraft, hobbyists.
  • Replacing methylene chloride in your dip tank for metal parts – helping to make your work environment safer
  • Use to safely remove finishes from fragile work pieces and hard to reach areas.

Does CarboLift react with metal?

Yes – we have had some experiences with CarboLift reacting to magnesium. It is important to remove all metal components before lifting.

Using CarboLift on a repaired composite surface..

We do not guarantee results when using CarboLift on a repair. The reason being the resin is often very different (low quality) from the production resin the manufactures use to make the product. If you have any questions or concerns please email me at Chris@paintlifting.com
