// What is carbon fiber?
Originally created in 1958 by Dr. Roger Bacon, carbon fiber is a polymer composed mostly of carbon atoms linked in long chains. It is a lightweight and very strong material that is found in all types of products including airplanes, racecars, and golf clubs. Very long strings of carbon fiber are twisted into yarns, then woven into matrix-patterned weaves. When these weaves of carbon fiber are combined with plastic resins (such as epoxy), a composite material called Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) is created. CFRP is lighter than aluminum and stronger than steel, and makes for the perfect composite for use in race cars when minimizing weight and maximizing strength are of utmost importance.
