Carbon fiber (CF) is used as a reinforcement material in composites. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) composites, offer a higher strength-to-weight ratio and stiffness-to-weight ratio than many structural materials. Lightweight, high-strength, and high-stiffness composite materials are crucial for the development of an energy efficient transportation industry, enabling vastly improved power generation, new mechanisms for storing and transporting reduced carbon fuels, and enhancing renewable power production.
