Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Carbon fibre manufacture. Technician with machinery used in the manufacture of carbon fibres. Black carbon fibre threads are being wound onto spools on the machine. Carbon fibres are made of a synthetic material which consists almost exclusively of carbon atoms. They are made by using heat to decompose organic fibres, such as polyacrylonitrile or cellulose, in an inert atmosphere. Carbon fibres are used with resins to make materials which have a higher strength to weight ratio than metals. Carbon fibre materials are used in aircraft, vehicles and sporting equipment.
