I worked with Sophie and was able to customize as I wished. Product was delivered and we had a small issue that Sophie was able to fix quickly and easily. She is attentive and worked with me through the process. Requested the wheel to be heated and it worked as well! The quality is factory finish, the real deal.

Latest company news about WHY IS CARBON FIBER USED IN CARS?


As we all know, carbon fiber is often used in cars. Steering wheels, mirror covers, car spoilers, car gear shift knobs and so on all have a lot of people keen to modify them into carbon fiber. Why is that? Why is carbon fiber used in cars?


This is because carbon fibre reduces the weight of cars while providing enough strength to withstand the rigours of racing. You'll notice that the supercars and supercars of the world, in addition to increasing engine output and improving aerodynamic design, are also very focused on reducing weight - which is what carbon fiber does well in cars. Carbon fiber is five times lighter than steel and less dense than aluminum, one of the lightest metals. In a competition between two otherwise identical cars, a car with carbon fiber parts might have an advantage over a model with traditional material parts, because reducing weight maximizes the use of its powertrain.


So what is carbon fiber? Carbon fiber refers to the carbon content of more than 90% of the high strength and high modulus fiber. High temperature resistance in all chemical fiber first. Using acrylic fiber and viscose fiber as raw materials, through high temperature oxidation carbonization. It is an excellent material for manufacturing aerospace and other high-tech equipment.


Carbon fiber is mainly composed of carbon elements, has the characteristics of high temperature resistance, friction resistance, thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance, the shape is fibrous, soft, can be processed into a variety of fabrics, because its graphite microcrystalline structure along the fiber axis preferred orientation, so along the fiber axis has a high strength and modulus. Carbon fiber has a low density and therefore a high specific strength and modulus. The main use of carbon fiber is as a reinforcement material with resins, metals, ceramics and carbon composite, manufacturing advanced composite materials. The specific strength and modulus of carbon fiber reinforced epoxy resin composites are the highest among existing engineering materials.


Carbon fiber is only 5 micrometers in diameter, equivalent to 10 to 12 times the size of a human hair, but more than four times the strength of aluminum alloy.
