Graphite & Carbon uses in Defense Technology

Reinforced carbon fibers have already proven their extraordinary properties. Factors such as reduced weight and complex geometrically formed components offer a series of advantages in the areas of protection for:

  • Military wheeled and track vehicles

  • Helicopters

  • Ships

Graphite is used in military aerospace vehicles due to it's resistance to extreme temperatures. Carbon felt is used for insulation against lower high-altitude temperatures and also in brakes.
