Carbon Fiber Woven
The carbon fiber woven are made by Carbon Fiber filaments, which together form a flat wick, extend in both the warp and weft directions, thus achieving different finishes such as the Twill or Taffeta. The carbon fiber is a synthetic fiber, which is made from polyacrylonitrile exposed to high temperatures and in the absence of oxygen, which will offer high values of strength by weight and stiffness by weight after oxidation and carbonization. The successive steps of surface treatment and surface gluing improve the adhesion and the handling ability of the fiber. The resulting carbon fiber has properties similar to steel and is as light as wood or plastic. Because of its hardness it has greater resistance to impact than steel. Resistant to traction, great modulus of longitudinal elasticity.
Mainly it is applied for the manufacture of composite materials with thermostable polymers. In the transportation, aeronautics, automotive, and now more commonly in decorative objects and sporting elements such as bicycles, hockey sticks, skis, golf clubs, snowboards, helmets, paddle paddles, etc. Which give lightness and a aesthetic finish to the final product.
