carbon fiber basic facts you must know - cl carbonlife

Carbon Fiber is a polymer and is sometimes known as graphite fiber. It is made of thin, strong crystalline filaments of carbon that is used to strengthen material. It is a very strong material that is also very lightweight. Carbon fiber is five-times stronger than steel and twice as stiff. Though carbon fiber is stronger and stiffer than steel, it is lighter than steel; making it the ideal manufacturing material for many parts. These are just a few reasons why carbon fiber is favored by engineers and designers for manufacturing.

Besides, Carbon fiber can be thinner than a strand of human hair and gets its strength when twisted together like yarn. Then it can be woven together to form cloth and if needed to take a permanent shape, carbon fiber can be laid over a mold and coated in resin or plastic.

On top of being strong, carbon fiber:

Is high in stiffness
Is high in tensile strength
Has a low weight to strength ratio
Is high in chemical resistance
Is temperature tolerant to excessive heat
Has low thermal expansion
Because of this, carbon fiber is very popular in many industries such as aerospace, automotive, military, and recreational applications. Some examples would be Formula One, Ferraris and Lamborghinis, yachts, MotoGP, and even items from luxury brands such as Chanel, Gucci, Montblanc and more.

Almost anything can be made with Carbon Fiber. If you would like to make a carbon fiber backpack, that can be made. If you would like to make a carbon fiber ruler, that can be made. CL CARBONLIFE has made various products in Carbon Fiber including.
