Initially, carbon fiber (aka carbon) features high strength-to-weight ratio and outstanding rigidity. The material is also referred to as graphite-reinforced polymer (aka graphite fiber-reinforced polymer – GFRP), which is less common as it clashes with either glass-reinforced or glass-fiber-reinforced polymer. In commercials, it’s sometimes referred to simply as graphite fiber. Improved manufacturing techniques reduce the costs and time to produce, making the compound common in small consumer goods such as tripods, hockey sticks, fishing rods, paintball and archery equipment, tent poles, drum shells, helmets used as a paragliding accessory, just to name a few. Notwithstanding its relatively expensive cost, carbon fiber is extensively used in aerospace and automotive fields, including Formula One Racing.
