This process allows Ilmberger Carbon to manufacture parts to the same level as those supplied to top-level teams in Formula 1 and MotoGP. Each gloss accessory carries a superior clear lacquer coating which provides outstanding depth and finish, alongside exceptional resistance against aging, weathering and UV radiation. Matt parts are further specially buffed to remove the shine, yet retain the same protection. This unique process allows all street parts to be supplied with ABE/TUV approval - this does not extend to racing parts. Ilmberger Carbon parts are market-leading aftermarket carbon products ready to fit to your motorcycle!
Precision manufacturing techniques ensure a stunning visual finish, reduced weight, increased strength and exceptional fit! How are Ilmberger Carbon parts made?Ilmberger carbon parts are produced in the autoclave from Prepreg carbon weave. The carbon fibre is processed dry and usually laid in fully milled aluminium moulds, then packed in vacuum bags. In the next step, the parts are kept under constant vacuum within the bag and exposed to additional external pressure while being baked in the autoclave for several hours. In addition, the temperature is raised or lowered several times, depending on which fibres are being treated.
Following the heating process, the parts are de-moulded and milled and sharpened in the water jet cutter or the 5 axle milling machine. Then, in the final step, the practically finished carbon parts are covered with a clear plastic coating. Prepreg weave is a pre-impregnated carbon weave that has been treated with binding agents before processing.
Are Ilmberger carbon parts pre-drilled? Ilmberger supply ready-to-assemble carbon parts that are not only pre-drilled but ready to fit.
And at Ilmberger Carbonparts we make sure its a perfect fit. What advantages do autoclave carbon parts have? Autoclave parts are much more stable than the so-called wet laminate parts.
They can be varnished easily on account of their sealed surfaces, during precision processing there are no excess components present, such as, for example, excess resin, making the parts significantly lighter than standard carbon parts which are not autoclave baked. Is it legally permissible to fit carbon parts to street vehicles?
Non-UK customers may need to register in the vehicle registration documentation or could obtain an Ilmberger ABE (general operating licence). Is the weight difference noticeable when compared to the plastic parts on a motorcycle? Depending on the amount used and the model of motorcycle in question, it is possible to reduce the overall weight by a number of kilos, and the perceptible difference should not be underestimated.The number of kilos on can reduce automobile weight by is often in the 2-digit range. Which weight advantages does autoclave carbon offer when compared to GRP/GFK?
As well as the excellent optics the carbon possesses, cladding made from carbon is much more stable in the event of a crash than GRP/GFK, they do not suffer from wear and tear as much as GFK parts, and they do not break as easily as GFK parts, thereby assuring better protection for the underlying components. Are the parts supplied painted, or with decals? All Ilmberger parts are manufactured as plain carbon fibre. Some pictures shown may include OEM decals, or custom paint. This is only for part illustration purposes.What is the difference between regular gloss or matt road parts and racing parts? Ilmberger manufacture regular "road" parts which are finished to the highest possible standards. They also offer a "race" range - these parts are cheaper for track bikes, but do not meet the same standard of finish as the road parts.
Race parts do not have UV protection or as many layers of lacquer, and many are supplied without additional styling cut-outs (EG bellypans). Race parts are NOT TUV approved. In most cases, Ilmberger supply there parts as a direct replacement. These usually reuse the original fittings.
However, there are instances where original fittings cannot be reused; Ilmberger will provide these parts. Will these match my Ducati Performance Carbon?All Ilmberger Carbonparts come in matt finish for Ducati models - such as the original Ducati Performance Carbonparts do. They are a perfect match!
