Carbon: the super light material Carbon fiber reinforced plastic, also known as carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), also shortens carbon fiber, carbon or carbon, is a composite material in which carbon fibers are embedded in a plastic matrix.
The matrix serves to connect the fibers and to fill the spaces between them. The material epoxy resin is usually chosen as the matrix.
Carbon is only heat-resistant to a limited usage. *
Speed Products has therefore developed thermal insulation that protects the carbon from the inside against the hot exhaust gases.
We have christened this proprietary development RI Carbon: Reinforced Carbon.
However, for reasons of durability and of course considerable weight advantages, carbon is only recommended for racing.
For a durable use in normal road traffic there are better materials, such as the stainless steel( 0,7mm) developed by Speed Products, which is also very light.
Note: Carbon is only conditionally heat resistant and loses its gloss with use. However, this does not affect the stability of the carbon material.
* * No holders/brackets can be welded to carbon shells and carbon muffler shells. A super light and very durable alternative are Speed Products stainless steel shells in Mattblack Ceramics in 0.7mm wall thickness.
* Carbon shells and carbon muffler shells cannot have laser logos on them. We use appropriate heat resistant decals/stickers and/or 3 D nameplates. For sizes, please refer to the corresponding options.
Again, a super light and very durable alternative are Speed Products stainless steel sleeves in Mattblack Ceramics in 0.7mm wall thickness, on which the laser logo can be applied. For sizes, please refer to the corresponding options.
