Carbon Fiber Strip

Carbon fiber strips are thin strips made of unidirectional carbon fiber that are very strong and flexible. Carbon fibers made of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) polymer are oriented along the axis of the strip. Epoxies can be combined with carbon nanotubes to increase strength and stiffness. Because these strips are pultruded, the fiber to resin ratio is higher and the fibers are very straight, adding strength and stiffness. These strips are very flexible and elastic without plastic deformation.

How are carbon fiber strips used?

Carbon fiber strips can be used in truss structures or as local stiffeners or stiffeners. They can be epoxy-bonded to carbon, plywood, or aluminum panels to provide structural strength and rigidity. Carbon fiber strips make it easy to create small, lightweight carbon structures.

The benefits of carbon fiber strips

Carbon fiber strips are easy to assemble into lightweight carbon fiber structures because the flat surface facilitates epoxy bonding. Because they are very straight, they can be easily glued to flat surfaces, along cylindrical surfaces or edges. The carbon fiber strips are also very flexible, so they can be bent into tight radii, providing a strong elastic structural element.

Use carbon fiber strips

Carbon fiber strips should also be handled with care. The carbon fiber strips don’t flex permanently and can snap if bent or bent too far. Any surface should be very clean and oil-free for bonding. Sharp edges can be smoothed with fine sandpaper.
