What Is Carbon Composite?

Leave a Comment

Composite is a carefully fabricated blend of two or more different materials. Carbon composite is a great example of a high-performing composite material. The structural makeup of the composite makes it incredibly stiff, strong, and lightweight. As a result, manufacturers can safely use carbon composite in industries such as automotive design, aerospace, and defense.

Learn more about the applications of carbon composite, its unique benefits, and how this innovative material is making waves in major industries.

Applications of Carbon Composites

Tex Tech partners with organizations across major industries to create innovative new products powered by carbon composite. Carbon composite solutions are highly sought after in the following industries:

Aerospace and Defense

Aerospace applications require lightweight components that can withstand extreme conditions. Using carbon composite in rockets, spacecraft, and aircraft makes final assemblies lighter, stronger, and more efficient. Our Thermax® line of carbon composite products offer additional thermal protection for components used in aerospace assemblies.


Cars with lighter components run more efficiently. Lightweight carbon composite components can increase fuel efficiency and performance without compromising safety. Additionally, these parts can be designed to withstand high temperature exposures.

High-Performance Materials

Manufacturers rely on high-performance materials for the production of racing car parts, medical implants, sporting goods, and more. Our materials can be designed to meet your specific requirements.

Protective Apparel

Carbon composite can also shield wearers and even save lives when used in apparel, firefighter face masks, and other safety gear. Our CarbonX products are designed to protect the wearer against threats encountered when performing your missions.

Advantages of Using Tex Tech Carbon Composites

Carbon composite boasts superior properties. Carbon composite uses high-strength carbon fibers embedded in a resin matrix to create products that are stronger, stiffer, and more resilient than ever before. By using carbon composite, you can enjoy its numerous advantages:

  • Versatile Design. The lighter weight of our materials allows for more intricate and complex part designs for standalone parts or larger assemblies.
  • Enhanced Durability. Carbon composite isn’t just stronger than its base materials. This composite is also more resistant to heat, chemicals, corrosion, and fatigue.
  • Exceptional Stiffness. A resin matrix and web of carbon fibers lend carbon composite its strength and stiffness. It is less vulnerable to deforming, bending, or breaking, even in heavy construction applications.
  • Greater Strength. A higher strength-to-weight ratio means your parts can carry more load with less material. Carbon composites combine the lightness of aluminum with the strength of stainless steel.
