Carbon fibers are fibers about 5–10 micro meters in diameter and composed mostly of carbon atoms. Carbon fibers have several advantages including high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion. These properties have made carbon fiber very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, and motorsports, along with other competition sports. However, they are relatively expensive when compared with similar fibers, such as glass fibers or plastic fibers. Carbon fibers are usually combined with other materials to form a composite. When impregnated with a plastic resin and baked it forms carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (often referred to as carbon fiber) which has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, and is extremely rigid although somewhat brittle. Carbon fibers are also composited with other materials, such as graphite, to form reinforced carbon-carbon composites, which have a very high heat tolerance. Carbon fibers are the strongest fibers currently available to reinforce polymeric matrices. High performance grade carbon fibers display tensile strength exceeding 6 GPa and tensile modulus exceeding 600GPa. Coupled with their low-density (1.8 -2.0 g/cm3), carbon fibers possess the highest specific stiffness and strength, and find extensive use in aerospace grade composites.
