Carbon Fiber is a modern material known for its lightweight and remarkable strength. Like many great things, it was discovered by accident. The synthesis of modern carbon fiber first occurred in 1958. A physicist named Roger Bacon was attempting a thermodynamics experiment with graphite when he accidentally found what appeared to be tiny bits of carbon...

  Compression molding is a standard process used to make stock shape thermoplastic and thermoset materials and parts. Broadly speaking, you put a pre-heated plastic material into an open, heated mold cavity. The mold is then closed by a hydraulic press and compressed. This ensures the content in the mold comes into contact with all...

Up until recently, the only place you would find carbon fiber cars was on the racetrack. Their lightweight but strong bodies allow them to be significantly faster without compromising the safety of the drivers. Now, however, there have been several vehicles developed for the roads that will feature a full carbon car body. Keep reading to learn...
