What Are Carbon Fiber & Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics?
Carbon fiber is a fiber consisting mainly of carbon.
It is characterized by having a specific gravity of 1.8 to 2.2, making it light yet also strong and tough.
Carbon fiber is generally used in a carbon fiber reinforced plastic, with a resin or similar as the matrix.

Performance of carbon fiber & carbon fiber reinforced plastics
The most characteristic properties of carbon fiber are lightness, high strength, and high elastic modulus.
Carbon fiber manufacturing process
Mitsubishi Chemical manufactures carbon fiber using polyacrylonitrile and coal pitch as the principal raw materials.
Carbon fiber products come in a variety of forms, from tow (Continuous fiber), through intermediate materials, to molded products.
There are various molding methods (processing methods), depending on the shapes and characteristics of the final product.
