All Z parts are built off of molds built by Fulcrum to SPL’s design criteria. All molds were custom made, not copied from other parts. The molds have a glossy gelcoat finish to provide smooth parts. The parts themselves do not have gelcoat to save on weight, and those unsightly cracks we’ve all seen on cheap parts.
Two layers of raw carbon fabric go into the mold first. The first layer is a 3k twill weave, followed by a thicker structural angled-weave that is custom made for Fulcrum. Key areas then get a foam-like core to create bulk and thickness while minimizing weight. This core is followed by two more layers of carbon.
These 4 carbon layers form the part. They then vacuum bag the part to at least 22 inches of vacuum, then vacuum infuse their resin. They use super slow epoxy, which requires a 12 hour bake in the oven to cure (the resin is typically liquid for at least 4 hours). This slow cure allows plenty of time for the vacuum (which is maintained throughout the cure) to pull out excess epoxy to achieve an ideal fiber to resin ratio and ultra light parts. Typically, they pull back out 30-35% of the resin they infuse with.
The resulting finish is slightly matte, and is often referred to as ‘dry carbon’. With some effort, the parts can be painted with an automotive clear-coat to achieve the brilliant luster that carbon fiber is capable of, and far superior to gel coat. This comes at a weight penalty, but is recommended for street cars, as the raw carbon has no UV stabilizers. Alternatively, the parts can easily be painted with any automotive grade primer and color-matched to your body color. With either coating method, they highly recommend scuffing the parts with 400 grit paper, and a heavy wash in lacquer thinner to remove any residual mold release.
