The Real Difference Between Fiberglass And Carbon Fiber Panels

Manufacturers regularly face serious dilemmas when it comes to choosing the best materials for their projects or products. Metals are reliable and fairly affordable, but they’re quite dense and add a lot of weight and volume to the final product or component. Moreover, some tend to expand or contract when exposed to heat and cold, […]

Why Custom Carbon Fiber Parts Are The Future Of FPV Drones

Humans have always dreamed of flying. This recurrent vision is what motivated the Wright brothers to pursue their ambition of building a machine that was lighter than air, kicking off the aerospace industry we know today. However, these achievements have not stopped us from wanting to experience the exhilarating physical arousal linked to heights and […]

Everything You Need to Know About Carbon Fiber Cutting

Carbon fiber is easily one of the most impressive materials on the market today. In more recent years, it has exploded in popularity, as it can be used as an especially practical and effective material in a vast number of industries, including: Aerospace Aircraft (airplanes, helicopters, jet planes, etc.) Race cars and automobiles Drones or […]

The Role Carbon Fiber Plays in Modern Aviation

In the last century, humans have invented and implemented improvements in countless fields. One field that has drastically grown since its humble beginnings is aviation, specifically human flight. The very first powered aircraft took flight on December 17, 1903. Wilbur and Orville Wright, also known as the Wright Brothers, created an aircraft that took off […]

What Is Carbon Fiber Skinning?

The benefits of carbon fiber products cannot be overstated. This space-age composite qualitatively exceeds the properties and uses of other highly respected materials, such as aluminum and titanium, in terms of structural strength and lightweightness. Unfortunately, carbon fiber is sometimes difficult to come by, and is not a cheap material so its uses are often […]

What Makes Molded Carbon Fiber Parts So Special?

I´ve been into carbon fiber ever since I was a kid. I remember watching the Beyond 2000 show (yes, the one that promised we would have flying cars by the year 2000), and being amazed at the things that could be crafted with carbon fiber. It was still a mysterious material for most of us, […]

Is Carbon Fiber UV Stable? What You Need to Know

One of the most common questions surrounding carbon fiber sheets, panels, and other products is “is carbon fiber UV stable?” The answer is not quite so simple as a “yes” or “no” and requires a little bit of insight into how carbon fiber suppliers make their products, as well as what threats UV poses. Here’s […]

Best Cutting Tools for Carbon Fiber

At Protech Composites, we make carbon fiber sheets that can be cut with a wide range of standard tools and don’t necessarily need specialized tools for cutting, shaping, and working. Other carbon fiber manufacturing companies might offer differing advice on what you can use to cut carbon fiber sheets or panels (given thickness, weave, the […]

The Past, the Present, and the Future of Carbon Fiber

Thinking of the most durable, reliable, and versatile material almost instantly alludes to one particular kind: carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is both a strong and lightweight polymer used in a wide range of applications, from aerospace and aircraft to the manufacturing of toys, golf clubs, and knife handles.
