The advantages of carbon fiber really boil down to two words = strong, and light. The strength vs. weight characteristics of carbon fiber make it the perfect material to use in applications where the goal is to maximize speed and performance. Unnecessary weight is the enemy of performance – and using carbon fiber in place of aluminum or other alloys is an excellent way to trim the fat.
Carbon fiber composites are five times as strong as steel, twice as rigid, and weighs two-thirds less than steel. No wonder it’s an engineer’s top choice for hoods, spoilers, roof panels, and more!
