CFRPs are high-strength and lightweight composite materials that contain a matrix, which is generally a polymer resin, and carbon fiber, a reinforcement material. Epoxy is the most commonly used polymer resin for manufacturing CFRPs. However, other polymers such as polyester, vinyl ester, or nylon are also used as reinforcement matrices. The properties of these plastics depend on the structure of the carbon fiber and that of the binding matrix (resin) material. Silica, rubber, and nanotubes are also used for reinforcement. The reinforcing phase is either in continuous or discontinuous form.
CFRP products offer higher weight saving and thus a better fuel economy than the traditional materials such as steel and aluminum. Vehicle manufacturers are obliged to reduce the average energy consumption of vehicles, and this goal can be met using lightweight products. In addition, increased demands for eco-friendly and low VOCs products in vehicles enhance the need for CFRP products in automotive industry. Aerospace industry has strict performance product requirements for applications in commercial aircrafts, engines, satellites, helicopters, and launchers. Structural material in aircrafts such as panelling interiors are made using CFRP products. Though CFRP products offer such high weight savings, the price of CFRP products is approximately 10 times higher than the price of steel counterparts, which makes it difficult for CFRP products to expand in domestic markets. Only ultra-expensive vehicle manufacturers like Lamborghini use CFRP products for their supercars, which leads to uncertainty in supply of carbon fiber in automotive sector.
