Carbon Fiber Properties – an overview

Carbon fiber reinforced plastic, referred to as CFRP, is an advanced material much stronger than steel. It's widely used in aviation, space, medical, and other high-end product industries. This article discusses the main physical and mechanical properties of CFRP.

Carbon fiber reinforced plastic, referred to as CFRP, the main physical and mechanical properties are as follows:

Stronger than steel

Lighter than aluminum, but harder than titanium

Therefore, using CFRP can improve the reliability of automobiles and aircraft and, at the same time, significantly reduce their overall weight, increase the load, reduce energy consumption, and reduce exhaust gas emissions. Because of its significant advantages, it is becoming increasingly widely used, and the demand for its efficient processing is also increasing. Due to high strength, hardness, and wear resistance, carbon fiber materials are also difficult to process. Therefore, higher requirements are put forward for processing equipment, significantly cutting tools.
