Aerospace Carbon Fiber Market – In-Depth Insights & Analysis | IMR

Carbon fiber is made up of carbon atoms and has a diameter of 5-10 micrometers. Nearly 90% of carbon fiber is made from polyacrylonitrile (PAN). The rest is made of rayon or petroleum pitch. Organic polymers having long chains of molecules bound by carbon atoms provide great stiffness, tensile strength, low weight, chemical resistance, high-temperature tolerance, and minimal thermal expansion in the fiber. Carbon fiber has grown increasingly popular in aerospace, military, motorsports, and other areas as a result of these qualities. Aerospace is a constantly changing and innovating industry.
