BARREL AND CAP
The barrel and the cap have been created in Carbon TPT®, an exclusive material with a unique appearance. Its remarkable surface displays extremely regular striations, as Carbon TPT® is composed of multiple layers of parallel filaments obtained by dividing carbon fibres. These layers, with a maximum thickness of 30 microns, are impregnated with matrix then woven on a special machine that modifies the direction of the weft by 45° between layers, creating this distinctive visual effect that is strongly reminiscent of Damascene steel.
Heated to 120°C at a pressure of 6 bars, the Carbon TPT® is then ready to be processed on a CNC machine in Richard Mille’s case factory.
