This tool calculates the individual cured ply thickness in a laminate, given: the areal weight of the reinforcement fibres (g/m2); the density of those fibres (g/cm3); and the weight fraction and density of the matrix resin. The tool does not take into consideration any content of voids in the ply/laminate.
A second calculator is provided to convert volume fraction of fibres to weight fraction of resin – this uses the same weight and density data entered into the ply-thickness calculator.

*While we've tried to make it as accurate as possible, this tool is provided as-is and it is the user's responsibility to check the suitability of any calculated data.
