  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.

  • Colored carbon fiber

    Options for adding color have been around for decades, but new products are hoping to up the ante and open new markets.

  • Market Outlook: Surplus in carbon fiber's future?

    Participants at CW’s Carbon Fiber 2012 Conference see one coming as early as 2016.
