For applications requiring material that is tough and durable, yet extremely lightweight, Hornet Plates, made of industrial-grade carbon fiber, are the perfect solution. At its strongest, carbon fiber sheets are 10 times stronger than steel, yet 5 times lighter. The strongest carbon fiber is also 8 times stronger than aluminum, but 1.5 times lighter. These unique properties make Hornet’s prepreg carbon fiber perfect for a wide variety of commercial uses.
In addition to its excellent strength to weight ratio, carbon fiber resists corrosion and boasts a low CTE (Coefficient of Thermal Expansion). It also tolerates high heat and resistance, has flexible thermal and electrical properties, and works well with a wide variety of other materials.
