Carbon Fiber

Introduction

Carbon fiber is an extremely strong, stiff and lightweight material, superior in strength to conventional metal materials. It is technically known as a fiber containing at least 95% carbon atoms bonded together. It consists of very thin strands of carbon, even thinner than human hair. The strands can be twisted together, like yarn. The yarns can be woven together like cloth, which is used to make composite parts. When used with a bonding polymer, like a stiff resin or plastic, the strength-to-weight ratio (as well as stiffness-to-weight ratio) of carbon fiber is much higher than either steel or aluminum.

Properties of Carbon Fiber:

  • High stiffness
  • High tensile strength
  • Lightweight
  • High chemical resistance
  • High temperature tolerance
  • Low thermal expansion
