What is carbon fiber
Carbon fiber, otherwise referred to as graphite fiber or carbon graphite, is a material that is comprised of, you guessed it, fiber made from carbon. It is easily malleable and once bound together with resin, able to be shaped for multiple purposes. The result is a strong and lightweight composite material which is considered potentially the strongest material in existence.
What are the benefits?
Carbon fiber boasts a host of benefits, the most remarkable are its uncontended strength and durability. The fact that it is both stronger and lighter than aluminium and steel makes it one of today’s most functional and sought after materials. These attributes make carbon fiber a very attractive material for the making of cars, bicycles and other modes of transportation, but at a very costly price point. While it may not be feasible for you to replace all metal components in your car with carbon fiber, there are ways you can incorporate the material into your car’s design without breaking the bank.
