It is easy to use Carbon Tow. The simplest application is for wing spars and fuselages. Apply the Tow into place, then wet it out with Fast CA. Rub the carbon into place while the glue sets with a piece of plastic wrapped over your finger.
Another method is to lay the Carbon Tow down, and wet it out with Epoxy. Then squeegee the excess epoxy away and let it cure.
Keep the Carbon Tow stored in the Plastic bag, and don’t let your cats or dogs play with the stuff. Be careful when sanding around the Carbon Tow. You do not want to inhale the carbon dust.
Carbon Tow gives its strength so well because the glue fixes the soft fibers from flexing. The material is very good at not stretching, so when glue fixes the fibers into place on you airframe, the whole unit will resist bending.
