Application Of Carbon Fiber In Aircraft
Ask what the hottest material of the 21st century is, and many people will answer:carbon fiber. Carbon fiber originated in the 1950s, when the United States and the Soviet Union were in the Cold War. In order to solve problems such as the heat resistance of weapons, researchers used many materials for experiments, and finally found that carbon fiber was the most suitable. After so many years of development, carbon fiber has been applied in many fields, including automobile manufacturing, sporting goods industry, and other fields. Today, Xiaobian from Be-cu will tell you about the application of carbon fiber in aircraft.
Speaking of aircraft, the first thing that comes to mind is an airplane. The overall skeleton, tail, engine, brake pads and other components of the aircraft can be manufactured using carbon fiber. The reason why a hydrogen balloon can defy gravity and rise to the sky is because it is less dense than air. The density of an airplane cannot be less than that of air, so it is powered by fuel. The lighter the aircraft, the less power it needs, and the use of carbon fiber can reduce fuel consumption. The speed of the aircraft is very fast, and the air resistance is naturally large. The carbon fiber has high strength, strong tensile ability and low friction. It can remain unchanged and not deformed under high-altitude resistance, which is not affected, and protects the safety of passengers. The moisture-resistant properties of carbon fiber also ensure that it will not corrode as it travels through wet clouds.This article specifically describes the application of carbon fiber in aircraft, if you want to know more about it, you can take a look.
Other aircraft include airships, rockets, gliders, etc. They can also use carbon fiber, and the working principle is similar to that of carbon fiber aircraft. Here in particular, let’s talk about rockets, as aircraft flying into space, they are more sophisticated than airplanes, and the materials used need to be the best, which shows the advantages of carbon fiber.

ISO 9001 certified. BE-CU Prototype Offering CNC machining carbon fiber and other manufacturing services for carbon fiber marterial. Various capabilities include notching, labeling, drilling carbon fiber, grinding, laser cutting carbon fiber, finishing, plating, marking, CNC milling carbon fiber and turning carbon fiber.We stock high quality 3k carbon fiber sheet in a variety of thickness, types and finish. Its a great material used in applications where light weight and strength are needed such as drones. Unlike other workshops, we have no min order and are often filling orders with a single part. We also don’t make you pay for the full sheet and you only get charged for what is used. With a large selection of material, you should find everything you need to make your project come to life. We are also able to handle larger production runs and provide a competitive pricing. If we don’t have the material or finish you require, we are more the willing to look at bringing it in for you.
What Is Carbon Fiber?Carbon fiber is made of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) (or pitch, viscose) and other organic fibers by carbonization (removal of most elements except carbon) by pyrolysis method under inert gas at high temperature above 1,000 °C. Inorganic polymer fibers with a carbon content of more than 90%.
