Advantages of Carbon Fibre
Carbon fibre reinforced composites have numerous highly appealing properties that could be included in the design of cutting-edge materials and systems. Two of the most common uses of carbon fibre have been in applications where high strength to weight and stiffness to weight usually are advisable.
Superior toughness can be accomplished when joined with many other materials. Certain applications additionally make use of carbon fibre's electrical conductivity, in addition to high thermal conductivity.
Finally, additionally to the basic mechanical characteristics, carbon fibre produces a distinctive and pleasant surface finish.
