Here we are at another Tuesday, and another indestructible stuff post today we are talking about Carbon Fibre.
The element Carbon gives toughness and hardness to diamond, graphene and steel. Now it’s showing its super strength as part of a modern multi-purpose material called Carbon Fibre.
In carbon fibre, tiny woven or twisted strands of carbon are combined with plastics to make a super-strong, tough, light and flexible everyday modern material.
Found in sport gear, such as skis and pole vaults, bicycle frames and baseball bats. Formula 1 racing cars,tool handles, toys and even musical instruments.
Although we have had plastic for a bloody long time its never been strong enough to build reliable flying machines with carbon fibre that changed.
