Carbon (from carbone - carbon) is a high-tech material consisting of carbon fibers arranged relative to each other in a matrix of strict order, interconnected by polymer epoxy resins in a density of up to 2000 kg / m³.

This material has become several dozen times lighter than steel with a higher specific strength and rigidity.

As a result, carbon in addition to aircraft is widely used in the automotive industry for the manufacture of body and transmission elements, for the manufacture of fishing gear, in sports (rackets, bows, cues, ski equipment), in medicine and prosthetic engineering, and shipbuilding for the manufacture of light and durable boats.
