Carbon fiber is a long, extremely thin strand of material made mostly of carbon atoms bonded together by a parallel alignment of microscopic crystals.

These crystals make the individual fiber incredibly strong for its size, but its strength also comes from the carbon fiber that is twisted and bundled together to form a yarn or “tow.” Used by itself or woven into a fabric, the carbon fiber yarn is then combined with epoxy to be wound or molded into shapes, forms, and various composite materials.
