ABOUT CARBON FIBER
Luxury looks and modern versatility created with a light-weight, ultra-strong material—this is carbon fiber! Carbon fiber is a predominant manufacturing material used across industries for a variety of products—from fashion clothing for brands like Chanel and Gucci to Lamborghini vehicles, NASA equipment, and beyond. It’s undoubtedly earned a reputation of many qualities, and one that’s backed by its next-generation microscopic crystalline composition.
At the core of carbon fiber, and it’s praised properties, is its unique structure: carbon atoms bonded together in crystals that are aligned parallel to the long axis of fiber. Mimicking that of yarn, these fibers are made up of thousands of extremely thin carbon strands that are interwoven together. This unique composition and production largely contributes to what makes carbon fiber so indispensable—its properties!
From versatility and lightweight to durability, energy absorption, and sleek appearance, carbon fiber offers numerous manufacturing benefits and is ideal for a variety of applications. Five times stronger than steel, carbon fiber renders formidable strength. Combine that with its low weight and luxe appearance, and you have a material that’s suitable for virtually anything; cars, yachts, clothes, parts & accessories, sports equipment, knives, phone cases, wallets, watches—you name it and it can be made from carbon fiber!
Much like Southwest Composite Works, carbon fiber brings game-changing ability to everyday products—and we’re ready to help you bring your ideas to life with the unique application of carbon fiber! Reach out to us today to discover the ways this superlative material can enhance your abilities.
