Maier uses plain weave Toray carbon fiber 3k TOE, 200gsm dry. This is woven by Composite Fabrics of America in Taylorsville, NC. Maier also uses a layer of fiberglass in the middle for impact or damage stability. Maier uses polyester resins & clear gel coat for Marine applications to address the UV stability. NOTE: Maier has made epoxy parts for years. Many will argue that epoxy is the only true quality product. These parts see the daylight and sun year round. Very few products do well in the sunlight “even with” UV stabilizers. Maier has found the down side to epoxy is they don’t work well in the sun and with paints. Everyone says using Polyurethane paints over epoxy are the way to go. These statements are WAY to general and in our experience, not 100% accurate. While many people may wrinkle their noses at the polyester, Maier is rolling with it and believe this is the best material for the application.
Maier makes all of our spoilers the same way. Clear gel coat, carbon fiber, then fiberglass in the middle for some damage toughness, and finally carbon fiber. When the part comes out of the molds, they need to get some refinishing and touch up work done. If there are un-repairable imperfections in the finish, like serious distortions in the carbon weave, we will primer it gray or black and sell it at a discount. In this case the customer will paint it the same color as the car or vinyl wrap it. It is a good quality part with a primer or painted surface to cover up cosmetic imperfections.
