18What kind of temperature can carbon parts withstand?

Carbon fiber itself can withstand up to 2000 degrees, but, unfortunately, the resin can only withstand >120 degrees.

In separate cases, we manufacture parts of a higher temperature resin that can withstand up to 238 degrees.

19What is infusion?
Modern technologies of manufacturing composite materials involve the use of technologies of closed-molding technologies using vacuum. Vacuum technology used for fiberglass and carbon laminates. Parts made by the method of closed molding, are more durable and of high quality, compared to open molding. One such method of manufacturing a composite material infusion, in which the future layers of the laminate are laid in a dry matrix, impregnation of resin occurs after reaching a vacuum (air pumping). This achieves the perfect ratio of resin and carbon and, as a consequence, high-quality, lightweight and durable parts. Equally important is that infusion is a very clean process. There is no need for brushes, rollers. Resin is not poured or sprayed. The pattern of the carbon fiber does not suffer and the part is beautiful. The employee does not stain his clothes and hands. There is no need for a respirator, as there are no harmful fumes coming out of resin. The infusion process is much cleaner, safer and offers a more positive working environment.
20What is carbon fiber?

To put it simply, it is a synthetic fiber that was heated to such a temperature that it completely charred. Very think threads form a fiber which is then woven into a fabric.

Carbon fiber - a composite material, consisting of graphite fiber (carbon fiber) as a reinforcing substance in the polymer matrix. Carbon fibers in this combination can withstand tensile pressure, and the polymer binder makes the product resilient to compression. The most advanced materials, both natural and manmade, are composite. The combination of material properties provide the opportunity to use its strength, compensating for its weaknesses with the strong properties of the second material. The simplest example of a composite material is asphalt. The idea of the composite, a man learned from the nature, because the trees are also an example of a composite material - cellulose fibers in a matrix of a natural polymer lignin. Another example, reinforced concrete structures - steel rods in the concrete. We are surrounded by a variety of composite materials that we do not have any doubts for, because of its characteristics.

21Technical features and benefits of carbon.

Despite the apparent flexibility and fragility, carbon fiber in its technical indicators will give a form to many metals:

1. It is not subjected to corrosion,

2. Can withstand temperature up to 2000 degrees,

3. The level of tensile strength is 1800 MPa.

Thus, carbon fiber can be rightfully called a high strength material that is able to become a raw material for various products, including vehicle parts.

22The scope of carbon

Due to the high aerodynamic characteristics, resistance to deformation, low weight, carbon fiber parts are used in the following areas:

• Sports: the production of equipment;

• Aviation: production of components for aircraft;

• Capital construction;

• Medicine: the production of prostheses, elements of overalls;

• Space: manufacturing parts of missile framework;

• The production of household appliances: cases for mobile phones, laptops, appliances, household use;

• Automotive: crankcase protection, interior and exterior trim (bumpers, door handles, spoilers, etc.) of the couchbuilder, the production of racing cars.

23Is carbon fiber better than metal?

Yes, in most small structural parts. Carbon fiber reinforced composites have superior mechanical properties. In those cases, where lower weight in strength parts is critical, carbon fiber is easily superior alternative to metal. That is why, lightweight aircraft and Formula 1 (where only productivity is taken into account) makes extensive use of carbon fiber composite materials.

The tensile strength of the carbon fiber is four times higher than the best steels. And at the same time, its weight is about a quarter of the mass of steel. Carbon fiber is also superior to steel for its fatigue properties.

24Why does not carbon fiber part weight the fourth of the weight of a steel part?
Carbon fiber is a fibrous material. Many thousands of fiber are woven into the fabric. Fabric and fiber have a tensile strength only. You can climb on a thin rope, but it can not withstand its own weight during compression. Therefore, the carbon fibers are oriented in several directions to evenly use the tensile strength. Fiber must be held by a rigid matrix - resin component of a composite material. At high mechanical pressure carbon must weight about half the weight of a steel equivalent, while it will be much lighter than aluminum or titanium parts.
25Does carbon fiber have any other advantages over metal?

Yes. There are a lot of them. Metals are isotropic. This means that, for example, a sheet of aluminum has the same tensile strength in all directions. Carbon can be designed as non-isotropic. For example, using the orientation of the fibers in the product, carbon pipe can resist extension, but can be susceptible to lateral pressure. This property is used when designing bicycle frames. And it is impossible to achieve with metal.

Carbon fibre gives much more freedom in choosing the shape of the product, which can be adapted to mechanical or aerodynamic needs. The shape of metal products is limited by the possibilities of bends and compounds. Carbon composite can be formed into a complex, but integral, one-piece product, allowing the pressure to freely distribute throughout the area. Metal products have compounds that are place for accumulation of pressure, which leads to destruction. Carbon is superior to metals, because of its fatigue and pressure damping.

26Are all carbon fibers the same?
Not really, as it is for everything, here is important quality control. All harnassed Carbon Microsystem carbon fabric is made of fiber from American manufacturer ASKACA, the leader in terms of production and quality of carbon fibers. All materials have certificates of quality and can be used in both aviation and shipbuilding.
27The advantages of using carbon fiber parts for your car

Unique design. Carbon fiber parts are often used not only to improve the performance, but also to create a stylish and original solution. Its surface is decorated with a black and grey checkerboard pattern with a 3D effect.

Weight reduction. Due to its light weight, it is popular among sports car fans. Such parts are several times lighter than steel counterparts, which can significantly reduce the weight of a sports car and thus increases its power without increasing the power of the engine.

28Fiberglass

Fiberglass is one of the most common materials in the tuning industry and small-scale production. The production of fiberglass does not require complicated and expensive equipment. Our experience allows to produce parts of the highest quality. Fiberglass as a material used almost on all stages of production - from manufacturing technological equipment to the production of master models and finished parts. Fiberglass parts can be hinged and also playing the role of the power frame. Projects of our studio, fiberglass is used widely, up to the production of a fiberglass monocoque.

Material, widely used in units and small batch production. Has high strength level and relatively low density. Consists of a glass filler and a synthetic polymer binder. The filler is mainly glass fiber in the form of threads, bundles (rovings), fabrics, mats or chopped fibers. Binders - polyester, phenolic-formaldehyde, epoxy, silicone resins, polyimides, aliphatic polyamides, polycarbonates, etc. Fiberglass products have a range of utilization from -50C to +1300C.

Fiberglass does not conduct electricity and has a high atmosphere, water and chemical resistance. The mechanical properties of parts made from fiberglass are determined primarily by the characteristics of the filler and the strength of the connection of it with a binder. Fiberglass has the greatest strength and stiffness, containing oriented continuous fibers. Changing the orientation of the fibers, it is possible to vary the mechanical properties of parts made from fiberglass. Fiber orientation may be unidirectional and cross-sectional; in the first case, the fibers are arranged mutually parallel, and in the second - at a predetermined angle to each other, constant or variable according to the product. Fiberglass products with the oriented arrangement of fibers are produced by the methods of winding, the multilayer calculations or merging with subsequent autoclave, vacuum or contact by molding or by pressing, from press materials - pressing and casting.

The most common method of producing parts that are made from fiberglass – method of contact forming.

29Manufacturing of parts by the method of contact forming.

On the equipment (matrix) prepared in a certain way, a protective-decorative layer - gelcoat - is applied. The method of applying gelcoat - with a brush or sprayer. The gelcoat forms the outer surface of the future product made from fiberglass. Gelcoats have a wide palette of colors, so product made from fiberglass can be in practically any color (from the RAL catalogue). In addition, the gelcoat protects the fiberglass product from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiations, chemically active environments.

With this method we produce only parts from fiberglass and exclusively from imported environmentally friendly materials. Chemical processes in the product are completely terminated within one month, without any odor and harmful fumes.
