Default Best way to Glue Carbon Fiber to Carbon Fiber!

I wonder what should be the best way to glue CF to CF?

I will try Loctite 9462 Hysol, but I'm not sure if it will give a strong bond..

Any ideas?

Is the cf already cured in an epoxy matrix or are they loose fibers? In either case, the hysol is an excellent choice, but if you are gluing laminants together be sure to take some sandpaper up and down the grain where you will be gluing to rough it up a bit.
