Before for you decide to purchase after market carbon fiber replacement parts you should be aware of how carbon fiber is manufactured and some of the benefits of having them on your ride.
Carbon fiber is a material made up of thin strands composed mostly of carbon atoms. These strands are bonded together into microscopic crystals in a process called Crystal Alignment. Basically Crystal alignment is bonding the crystals parallel to the long axis of the fiber. This process makes the fiber incredibly strong in relation to its size. From this point, several thousand fibers are twisted together to form yarn. This yarn can be used by itself or woven into fabric. There are many different weave patterns and carbon fiber can be combined with a plastic resin and wound or molded to provide high strength to weight ratio material. Carbon fiber density is lower than the density of steel making it an ideal material in applications requiring low weight, such as automobile aftermarket replacement parts.
Ninety percent of carbon fiber is made from polyacrylonitrile or PAN (a resinous, fibrous or rubbery organic polymer) and the remaining ten percent is made from rayon or petroleum pitch.
The process for manufacturing carbon fiber is part chemical and part mechanical and each manufacturer has their own secret recipe, but the process is relatively the same. The first step in the process is Spinning, where the material is spun into fibers. The second step is Stabilizing, where the fibers are chemically altered to convert their linear atomic bonding to a more thermally stable ladder bond. The third step is Carbonizing, where the fibers are heated to anywhere between 1830 and 5500 degrees in a furnace filled with a gas that does not contain oxygen. The fourth step is Treating the Surface, where the surface is slightly oxidized to give the fibers better bonding properties. The fifth step is Sizing, where the fibers are coated to protect them from damage during the winding or weaving process.
Carbon fiber re-enforced composite materials are found in aircraft and spacecraft parts, racing car bodies, golf club shafts, bicycle frames, fishing rods and in various automotive after market parts. Carbon fiber is lightweight and incredibly strong.
