Many people know that carbon fiber has a quarter of the weight of steel, and 10 times than steel. Of course, it also has the impression of "expensive", but in fact, carbon fiber have cheap , expensive, and also have high quality, and Inferior quality.
In fact, carbon fiber is treated with high temperature to make "carbon fiber molecule" into "filament", and then "silk" is compiled into "cloth". How to prepare carbon fiber wire is an important part of its price and rigidity. You can understand this - the same carbon fiber cloth, different methods of preparation will have different effects, in other words, the rarer the pattern is compiled, it proves that the rigidity is stronger.
The outer surface is mostly made of "twill" carbon fiber cloth and resin glue. The texture of the pattern has obvious layering and 3D effect, but the surface is smooth by hand, but the carbon fiber grain sticker is not too much. The sense of layering, even if , does not have the smooth touch of real carbon fiber. Of course, not all carbon fiber products have a textured surface. Carbon fiber parts made of carbon fiber unidirectional cloth then they don’t have grain, and may be used more in the medical field, just we are rare. In addition, carbon fiber products are only black, and people often mistake color glass fiber or aramid materials for carbon fiber.
Carbon fiber is too "rigid", and aryl fiber is too "flexible". If using two fibers of different properties are woven together, the two fibers are woven together to make them complement each other, and there is Characteristics "just in the middle".
After some understanding of the carbon fiber fabric and the relationship, we will distinguish the true and false carbon fiber, and distinguish the first element of true and false - it must be the price, because the process of manufacturing carbon fiber is complicated, and the material cost of itself is not cheap, so There is definitely no good commodity at a cheap price. If you buy a cheap carbon fiber product, you have a good chance of buying a fake carbon fiber product that is mostly made of sticky paper and carbon fiber paint.
Second .The quality of the carbon fiber can be distinguished by the naked eye. To put it simply, you have to check some subtleties or details. Because the carbon fiber parts are covered, coated with resin, vacuum treated, and baked at high temperatures, any step may affect the carbon fiber pattern. The three-dimensional sense, want to achieve a perfect presentation, this is very much the master's manual ability, especially the details of the carbon fiber corners, the transition can be a good expression of the carbon fiber road clarity and silkiness.
In addition, some brands are “guessed right”. You don’t know enough about carbon fiber products. They often add PU materials to their middle parts to increase the thickness of carbon fiber. The easiest way to distinguish is to look at the bottom of the carbon fiber. If the bottom is not carbon fiber, then it is not a "100%" carbon fiber component. Since carbon fiber must be a common black gray, if you see other colors, it is definitely a fake. Of course, for The product with a very deep set of way can distinguish the carbon fiber content of the product by means of “knocking and knocking”. The sounds of the two are not the same.
After all, you bought it at a high price. After all, the cost price difference between fiberglass and carbon fiber is very large, unless its price is within a reasonable range.
Although the main material of carbon fiber is carbon, the manufacturing process and complicated procedures are the reasons why carbon fiber is expensive. You may ask that not all carbon fiber kits are expensive on the market. Remember the above three methods of identification and enjoy it as soon as possible. The texture of the layer under the glaze.
