Carbon Fiber is a graphite fabric especially
designed for use in laminates which have
requirements for maximum stiffness,
extremely high tensile (3 times that of steel)
and comprehensive (5 times that
strengths, with low weight. Its main function
is local reinforcement to improve the strength
ratio of highly stressed parts.
Carbon fiber is weak in shear strength and
impact resistance and should be shielded
from abrasion with fiberglass or other
materials, such as Kevlar?. This material
is categorized by weight per sq.
is sold by the running yard.
