Carbon Fiber: Lightweight, Strong and Looks Great!

Posted by David on

Carbon fiber, sometimes known as graphite fiber, is a strong, stiff, lightweight material that has the potential to replace steel and is popularly used in specialized, high-performance products including aircraft, vehicles and sporting equipment. The properties of a carbon fiber part are close to that of steel, and the weight is close to that of plastic. Thus the strength to weight ratio (as well as stiffness to weight ratio) of a carbon fiber part is much higher than either steel or plastic.

Carbon Fiber is made of carbon crystals aligned in a long axis. These honeycomb shaped crystals organize themselves in long flattened ribbons. This crystal alignment makes the ribbon strong in the long axis. In addition to carbon fiber's high strength to weight ratio, it also possesses excellent rigidity, resistance to heat, fire, corrosion and fatigue.
