Transcript of Carbon Fiber

Carbon Fiber
Why we chose carbon fiber?
We wanted to be original.
We heard about it but never really knew what it was.
It's very versatile in the manufacturing industry.
There is a large amount of background information, along with many advances in its field.
The reason why we have carbon fiber today.
There is a long history behind Carbon fiber.
How it's made and uses
The raw material used to make carbon fiber is known as the precursor, about 90% of carbon fiber produced are made from polyacrylonitrile [PAN]
The process for making carbon fiber is both chemical and mechanical.
There are many uses of carbon fiber in Vehicles
Its not only used in cars but also in planes and boats
Fibers are very strong, stiff, and light.
Sleek looking
Pros and Cons
Fun Facts
The next generation of carbon-fiber composites could reduce passenger car weight by 50 percent and improve fuel efficiency by about 35 percent without compromising performance or safety -- an advancement that would save more than $5,000 in fuel over the life of the car at today’s gasoline prices
The 42,000-square foot facility at the Energy Department’s Carbon Fiber Technology Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory features a 390-foot-long processing line that is capable of producing up to 25 tons of carbon fiber a year -- that is enough carbon fiber to cover the length of almost 138,889 football fields.
Carbon Fiber is believed to be a huge impact on the manufacturing of many different materials or products in the future.
