Volume-Weight Fraction

This tool converts volume fractions to weight fractions (and vice versa) and calculates the overall density of a composite.

Reinforcement Density (g/cm3)
E-Glass 2.56
Carbon 1.75–1.95
Aramid (Kevlar 49) 1.45
Matrix Density (g/cm3)
Epoxy 1.1–1.4
Polyester 1.2–1.5
Polyamide (Nylon 6.6) 1.14
Polypropylene 0.9
PEEK 1.26–1.32
