Key Properties of Carbon Prepreg:

Carbon prepreg is known for its outstanding properties, making it a preferred choice in various industries:

  • High Strength-to-Weight Ratio: Carbon prepreg offers excellent tensile strength and stiffness while being exceptionally lightweight, making it ideal for weight-critical applications.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Carbon fibers do not corrode, enhancing the durability and lifespan of structures and components.
  • Temperature Resistance: Carbon prepreg can withstand high temperatures, making it suitable for use in aerospace and automotive components exposed to extreme conditions.
  • Low Thermal Expansion: Its low coefficient of thermal expansion minimizes dimensional changes due to temperature fluctuations.
  • Design Flexibility: Carbon prepreg is highly moldable, allowing for complex shapes and designs.
