Differences in carbon fiber textures
1. Plain weave carbon fiber
The weaving method of plain weave carbon fiber is to weave the longitudinal and transverse carbon fibers cross each other. Since the longitudinal and transverse fibers are evenly and tightly woven, the "lightweight and high-strength" properties of carbon fiber can be maximized.
Although plain weave carbon fiber may seem ordinary, it is most suitable for high-speed motorcycles.
2. Aya weave carbon fiber
Aya-woven carbon fiber is weaved by jumping one grid vertically and horizontally. Because this weaving method has fewer intersections in the vertical and horizontal directions, the strength will be weaker than that of plain-woven carbon fiber, but its The characteristic is that it can present an oblique three-dimensional sense; generally speaking, the most popular design among the decorative parts must be the Aya-woven carbon fiber.
3. Open fiber carbon fiber
Fiber opening refers to opening the fibers and flattening each fiber that was originally entangled in the already quite thin crossed carbon fiber cloth to make a thinner carbon fiber.
The thinner the thickness, the more layers of carbon fiber can be overlapped. Because these thinner carbon fibers are stacked together, the weight itself does not increase, but it increases the strength.
4. Kevlar fiber
Synthetic carbon fiber that weaves aramid fiber (Kevlar fiber) into carbon fiber, yellow aramid fiber (Kevlar fiber) can be seen from the grain, this material is also used for military purposes such as bulletproof vests, it is a fairly strong Tough material, its toughness is generally used in production, and it is often used on covers such as crankcase covers (the photo is a carbon fiber cover made by Battle Factory.)
In addition, since aramid fiber (Kevlar fiber) is lighter in weight than carbon fiber, it can make light and strong products, but the cost is also high.
Although they are all "carbon fiber", the suitable materials are different according to different uses. Is it to be lightweight? Or for decoration? Or do you want to protect spare parts? If you want to paint and process it later, it may be a good option to use glass fiber directly, but sometimes you can directly see a little bit of the texture of the material itself, which is also another fashion expression. You might as well try it. Choose a material suitable for your car according to your own use and the degree of styling.
