Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic Production Cost Analysis 2020
Carbon fibre reinforced plastic, which is also known as CFRP or CRP, is an example of a sturdy, light, and expensive composite material or fibre-reinforced plastic. It is widely used in several applications in aerospace and automotive fields, as well as in sailboats, and notably in modern bicycles and motorcycles. It is also prevalent in small consumer goods as well, like laptop computers, tripods, fishing rods, paintball equipment, racquet sports frames, stringed instrument bodies, classical guitar strings, and drum shells.
The characteristics of the final carbon fibre reinforced plastic product can also be altered by the type of additives introduced to the binding matrix (resin).The most common additive often used is silica.Carbon fibre reinforced plastic are made up of composite materials. The composite involves two parts: a matrix and a reinforcement. In carbon fibre reinforced plastic, the reinforcement is carbon fibre, which provides the core strength to the product. The matrix is usually a polymer resin, like epoxy, that generally just helps in binding the reinforcements together. Reinforcement gives carbon fibre reinforced plastic the strength and rigidity, measured by stress and elastic modulus, respectively.
Unlike isotropic materials including steel and aluminium, carbon fibre reinforced plastic has directional strength properties. The properties of CFRP depend on the layouts of the carbon fibre as well as the proportion of the carbon fibres relative to the polymer. Also, composite materials, reinforced with carbon fibre, are different than other FRP composites using conventional materials such as fibreglass or aramid fibre.
