Carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer or carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP or CRP or often simply carbon fiber), is an extremely strong and light. Although carbon fiber can be relatively expensive, it has many applications in aerospace and automotive fields. The compound is also used in sailboats, modern bicycles, and motorcycles. The high cost of carbon fiber is mitigated by the material's unsurpassed strength-to-weight ratio, and low weight is essential for high-performance automobile racing. Carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) has over the past two decades become an increasingly notable material used in structural engineering applications _ Its tensile strength is more than 10 times mild steel.
