Carbon fiber is now the most important inorganic fiber of high-performance, which is determined by its material property, production technology, and market application. In 1972, a fishing rod made of carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRT) was developed and the succeeding development of CFRT moved on to the structural materials of aerospace vehicles.
The main application of carbon fiber is the reinforcement of resin material. The excellent performance of CFRT has a large potential and is practically used in the following fields.
In this series of articles, we will choose some of the applications involving CFRT and have a brief discussion.
