Carbon fiber products have technically been around for more than 150 years. Experiments with their predecessors happened as far back as the mid-1800s. Unfortunately, interest in carbon fiber materials waned shortly after that. However, some breakthroughs happened in the 1950s and 1970s. This caused manufacturers to suddenly become interested in the material again. After that,...
