The Benefits of Carbon Fiber Car Parts Carbon fiber offers several benefits when used in automobile parts but these composites were not initially designed for this purpose. They were originally designed for aircraft applications according to CNET. Weight The Oak Ridge National Laboratory ORNL says that carbon-fiber composites can reduce a cars weight by up to 60 percent. The governments Fuel Economy website says that reducing a vehicles weight by just 100 pounds will increase your fuel economy by about two percent. Carbon fiber also benefits race car drivers as the weight of a vehicle affects the acceleration and overall speed of the car. Repair Costs Carbon fiber does not corrode or rust like steel. Therefore carbon-fiber parts can reduce or eliminate the need to replace rusted vehicle parts which is a problem that becomes more likely as the car ages. Rust can also spread over time so carbon-fiber parts can limit the damage caused by this problem. Safety Although more expensive carbon fiber is stiffer than steel and five times stronger. Carbon fiber can also have a higher energy-absorption rate than steel and can increase safety in a collision according to the ORNL.Reference from http://www.ehow.com/facts_6816516_benefits-carbon-fiber- car-parts.html EXPRESSAEROKITS 16541 Gothard St 206 Huntington Beach CA 92647 USA PH :888 411-0750
