Benefits of a Carbon Fibre bonnets

28 March 2011 2 Comments

Well firstly, before we start discussing the benefits of fitting a carbon fiber hood to your car, let us first look at what carbon fiber is.
Wikipedia provides the best explanation for this so I will quote from there. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon-…forced_polymer

”Carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer or carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP or CRP), is a very strong, light, and expensive composite material or fiber-reinforced polymer. Similar to fiberglass (glass reinforced polymer), the composite material is commonly referred to by the name of its reinforcing fibers (carbon fiber). The polymer is most often epoxy, but other polymers, such as polyester, vinyl ester or nylon, are sometimes used. Some composites contain both carbon fiber and other fibers such as Kevlar, aluminium, and fiberglass reinforcement. The terms graphite-reinforced polymer or graphite fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) are also used, but less commonly, since glass-(fiber)-reinforced polymer can also be called GFRP. In product advertisements, it is sometimes referred to simply as graphite fiber (or graphite fibre), for short’’. (Wikipedia)

Some of you might not know, but fitting a carbon fiber hood to your ride has more benefits than just weight reduction. Yes it looks sexy too, which is a bonus, but what else does it do for your car?
Find out what Richard has posted on the forum about it.
