Carbon Fiber

Extraordinary Strength-to-Weight Ratios

istock carbon.jpg

Carbon fiber has the highest stiffness-to-weight ratio of any advanced fiber with moduli ranging from 33 msi (230 GPa) to 85 msi (588 GPa). PAN-based carbon fibers have a low specific gravity (1.8 gm/cm2) and excellent tensile and compressive strengths.


With both Vinyl Ester (VE) and epoxy sizings and a wide variety of woven, stitched, and braided styles readily available, carbon enhances the performance of almost any product by saving weight and improving stiffness.


Properly designed carbon can be a cost-effective alternative to traditional materials.

We can help source more specialty and hard-to-find reinforcement fabrics not featured in our commonly stocked list such as Aramid/Carbon hybrids, uncommon stitch or weave constructions, Intermediate Modulus, & High Modulus input fiber fabrics. Please inquire with details of your needs and we would be happy to assist.

The featured materials are what Core Composites commonly distributes. We are happy to potentially assist in finding a different product or to point you in the right direction based on your needs and our ability to accommodate.
