Structural carbon fiber is used in a variety of industries, which includes aerospace, engineering, product manufacturing, and construction. Over the years, structural carbon fiber has undergone a significant amount of research and development in order to create a variety of parts, products, and structures.
A Brief Overview of High-Performance Carbon Fibers
Carbon fibers were initially created using a rayon precursor. These were the first carbon fibers that were demonstrated to provide a peak performance. PAN-based carbon fibers are currently used because they provide both strength and stiffness. In terms of strength, these fibers can withstand as much as 1,000 KSI, which increases their demand for a variety of purposes that require both strength and stiffness.
It’s also important to note that carbon fiber composites are stronger than steel. Recent data shows that these fiber composites are about ten times as strong as their steel counterparts. Another benefit is th
