Carbon fiber composite materials, also known as carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP), are composite materials made of carbon fibers and resin (mainly epoxy resin).
As light, strong, and hard materials, they are used in wide range of applications such as sporting goods, industrial, aircraft and automobile components. By selecting suitable resin, it is possible to add features like heat resistance, impact resistance, and flame retardant, and thus provide superior characteristics not found in conventional metals and ceramics to enable a reduction in the weight of parts, give freer design.
