PROPERTIES OF CFRP COMPOSITES
Composite materials, reinforced with carbon fiber, are different than other FRP composites using traditional materials such as fiberglass or aramid fiber. The properties of CFRP composites that are advantageous include:
A traditional fiberglass reinforced composite using continuous glass fiber with a fiber of 70% glass (weight of glass / total weight), will commonly have a density of 0.065 pounds per cubic inch.
Meanwhile, a CFRP composite, with the same 70% fiber weight, might typically have a density of 0.055 pounds per cubic inch.
Not only are carbon fiber composites lighter weight, but CFRP composites are much stronger and stiffer per unit of weight. This is true when comparing carbon fiber composites to glass fiber, but even more so when compared to metals.
