Moulding Carbon Fiber Sheet
What are carbon fiber plates?
Carbon fiber plates are made by stacking layers of unidirectional or woven carbon fiber prepreg (pre-impregnated with resin) in different orientations and curing them under heat and pressure. The resulting plate has a glossy or matte surface finish depending on the manufacturing method. The orientation of the carbon fiber layers determines the mechanical properties of the plate. For example, a balanced 0°/90° plate has equal strength and stiffness in the axial and transverse directions, while a quasi-isotropic 0°/90°/+45°/-45° plate has improved performance in torsional or off-axis loading.
Carbon fiber plates can be designed and manufactured in various thicknesses, sizes, and shapes to meet specific requirements. They can also be machined, drilled, cut, or bonded to other materials to create complex structures.

What are the benefits of carbon fiber plates?
Carbon fiber plates have many benefits over traditional materials like aluminum and steel. Here are some of them:
– High strength: Carbon fiber plates have a high strength-to-weight ratio, meaning they can withstand high loads with minimal weight. For example, a 0.125 inch thick carbon fiber plate has a tensile strength of 670 ksi (4620 MPa), while a 0.125 inch thick aluminum plate has a tensile strength of 40 ksi (276 MPa).
– Low weight: Carbon fiber plates are much lighter than aluminum and steel plates of the same size and thickness. For example, a 12 x 12 inch carbon fiber plate with a thickness of 0.125 inch weighs only 1.2 lbs (0.54 kg), while an aluminum plate of the same size and thickness weighs 3 lbs (1.36 kg) and a steel plate weighs 10 lbs (4.54 kg).
– Excellent fatigue resistance: Carbon fiber plates have a high resistance to cyclic loading and stress corrosion cracking, meaning they can endure repeated loading without losing their strength or integrity.
– Dimensional stability: Carbon fiber plates have a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), meaning they do not expand or contract significantly with temperature changes. This makes them ideal for applications that require precise alignment and fit.
– X-ray transparency: Carbon fiber plates are transparent to x-rays and other electromagnetic waves, meaning they do not interfere with imaging or scanning devices. This makes them suitable for medical and aerospace applications.

How to choose the right carbon fiber plate for your project?
Choosing the right carbon fiber plate for your project depends on several factors such as:
– Design requirements: You need to consider the dimensions (length, width,thickness), shape (flat or curved), surface finish (glossy or matte), andlaminate design (orientation of carbon fiber layers) of your desired plate.
– Mechanical properties: You need to evaluate the strength, stiffness, toughness,and fatigue resistance of the carbon fiber plate according to the load and stress conditions of your application. Different types of carbon fiber (such as standard, high modulus, or ultra-high modulus) have different mechanical properties and costs.
– Thermal properties: You need to consider the thermal expansion, conductivity, and stability of the carbon fiber plate under different temperatures and environments. Carbon fiber has a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), which means it does not expand or contract much when heated or cooled. It also has a high thermal conductivity, which means it can dissipate heat quickly. However, carbon fiber can degrade when exposed to high temperatures or flames.
– Electrical properties: You need to be aware of the electrical conductivity and shielding of the carbon fiber plate. Carbon fiber is a good conductor of electricity, which means it can interfere with electromagnetic signals or cause short circuits if not properly insulated. On the other hand, carbon fiber can also act as an effective shield against electromagnetic interference (EMI) or radio frequency interference (RFI) if designed properly.
- Pultrusion process also can make carbon fiber sheet ,but the strength of moulding carbon fiber sheet is better
