Advantages of Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is used for many applications due to it’s unique properties.  The major advantages of carbon fiber over traditional materials like steel, aluminum, wood and plastics include:

  • High stiffness and strength
  • Lightweight
  • Corrosion resistance
  • X-ray transparency
  • Low CTE (Coefficient of Thermal Expansion)
  • Chemical resistivity
  • Thermal and electrical conductivity
