Carbon fibers are a versatile product, with a plethora of applications in a wide array of industries. The remarkable strength, tensibility, heat and corrosion resistance properties of carbon fibers make it a durable and lightweight component for aerospace engineering to replace metal parts, resulting in astounding fuel saving. The same principles apply to the defense industry and wind energy sectors as well. At the same time, the industry of high-performance automobiles, such as Formula-1 racecars, has already introduced carbon fiber to their manufacture, and the developments in recycled carbon fiber will broaden the horizons for the automotive industry in general, in the manufacture of braking components and more. Sports and recreation have already initiated the use of carbon fiber in their manufacturing processes, for the creation of stronger, lighter and more efficient protective gear and more.
Carbon fibers will surely be at the forefront of all industries in the years to come, and Innovative Recycling will lead with the production of reliable and cost-effective recycled carbon fibers.
