Carbon Fiber Repair kit

Postby live2play » Mon Apr 17, 2017 12:11 am

I'm looking to put together a carbon fiber repair kit, one at home and one for travelling, for a carbon hydrofoil and board.
Just wondering what it should contain?
I assume some carbon cloth, epoxy... anything else?
I'm looking for specifics such as type of epoxy, carbon, etc.

just a question; can you take these "real" two component epoxies on flights?

What repairs are you planning to make? major structural repairs or just dings and scratches?

if its just dings and scratches then super glue, backing soda and sandpaper make for a quick repair.

I think also if you have to ask then the answer is you are not experienced enough to dabble in significant structural repairing.
