Anyone have pics of a carbon fiber vinyl interior?
could you post a link to the heater elements... i can't seem to find them
i have used Morbern and have been very happy with it
All vinyl testing for Baja Marine was done by Sea Ray, and I better not post any documents owned by them. The test boats at Baja never lasted more than a year, but the carbon vinyls we used held up well, and passed the SR testing.
Here are some stadards, and terms to look for in testing of vinyl products:
• ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials)standards: See table 1
• AATCC (American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists) standard: 147-1998(99)
• SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) standard: J855-1994
• Federal standards: 191-5304, 191-5651.1, 191-5874
• CFFA (Chemical fabrics and Films Association): Standard Test Methods, Glossary of terms for the Chemical Fabrics and Film Industry
• CIE ( International Commission on Illumination) : S001/ ISO IS 10526 Colorimetric illuminants, S002/ISO IS 10527 Colorimetric observers
Abrasion - Measurement of the ability of the chemical coating to resist surface wear when rubbed against another (abradent) surface.
Adhesion – A measure of the force required to separate a chemical coating from the base substrate.
Bacterial Resistance – A determination of Bacteriostatic activity of chemical coated fabrics.
Blocking – Unintentional adhesion between plastic films, or between a film, and another surface.
Colorfastness to light – A determination of the resistance of chemical coated fabrics to exposure to laboratory simulated sunlight.
Color variation - Total amount of color change (listed as E in tables 2 and 3) between master and sample being tested. (DE=[(L)2+(A)2+(B)2 ] in the CIELab system)
Crocking – A measure of resistance to transfer of color from a chemical coating to another surface (usually a fabric) by rubbing action.
Fabric – Refers to the textile material used to enhance the physicals of the composite formed by the coating/lamination of the plastics to the textile. The fabric usually is in a woven, knitted, or non-woven construction. Woven fabrics consist of fabric formed on a loom with two separate yarns (warp and filling) that are at right angles to each other. The two yarns go over and under each other in a designated pattern. Knitted Fabrics are formed by a single, or multiple yarns, making interlocking loops. Non woven fabrics are formed by laying a continuos web of random spaced fibers to form a uniform batting. The fibers are then bonded to form a fabric by chemical adhesion, thermal or chemical processes.
Flex - A determination of the change in surface appearance of a chemical coated fabric when subjected to multiple flexing.
Low Temperature Resistance – The measurement of the ability of a chemical coated fabric to withstand cracking at low temperature.
Mildew Resistance – A determination of the ability of a chemical coated fabric to resist fungal growth.
Tear Strength – A measurement of the force required to continue or propagate a tear in a coated fabric.
Tensile strength – A measurement of the force required to break a coated fabric.
Volatility – A measurement of Volatile weight loss of a chemical coated fabric when subjected to an elevated temperature.
I was looking for a whole interior pic done in the carbon vinyl. Mine is going to be yellow just cant decide what to do.
They were on the front page, but moved for some reason. If you click the original link and sort by price/highest, they pop right up. There are also smaller elements for $79. I personally think it would be sweet to install 8 of these in two rows of four right across the sunpad. I could sleep like a baby under the stars with a toasty back and a light blanket!
