Material of the Day: Carbon FiberBy Bader alawadhi
Carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites are what seems to be the future of cars. With it having many advantages compared to steel it would make cars lighter and therefore faster, safer due to it's strength and also more fuel efficient.
Why Carbon Fiber? 1) Each thread of Carbon is thinner than a human hair. 2) Five times as strong as steel. 3) Weights two thirds less than steel.
