The structural filament of carbon is nearly six micrometres in diameter this type of carbon is compared to the human hair. The fibre which is mainly made of carbon gets frequently supply from the reel which is in the continuous flow of tow wound. The tow is known as a bundle and as well as thousands of individual filaments of carbon in a continuous manner which would be held together and mostly gets protected by a coating made of many organic materials and as well as the size like PEO which is abbreviated as Polyethylene oxide or it is also known as PVA which is also abbreviated as polyvinyl alcohol. This article is about the carbon bike frame . This type of tow can be unwound from the product of reel and we can use conveniently. As we have already noticed that a carbon filament forms the product known as tow, this tow is a material which would look like a continuous cylinder has the diameter nearly five to ten micrometre, which almost consists of carbon in an exclusive manner toxic structure
The atomic structure of the fibre which is made of carbon is similar to graphite, which used to consists of sheets in the form of the carbon atom that is get arranged with a hexagonal pattern in a regular manner which is known as graphene sheets. The main difference is that the interlocking of sheets. Graphite is a material made of a crystalline substance which might be packed parallel to one another in a regular manner or it is said to be a fashion. There is a force which acts in this type of sheets that is intermolecular force. The intermolecular force which acts in between the sheets is Vander Waals forces which are relatively weak. This force gives a graphite brittle and as well as soft characteristics.
The structure is of two types namely the turbostratic and graphitic, these type of structure depends on the precursor which is used to make the fibre. To make fibre turbostratic is used in some way or graphitic is used in some way or both the parts of turbostratic and as well as graphitic parts are used. The usage of both is said to be in a hybrid structure. The carbon which is made of turbostratic the sheets of atoms (carbon atoms) is folded haphazardly or it may be a together crumpled. The fibres which are made of carbon is derived from the polyacrylonitrile which is known as PAN. The carbon fibres are get derived from the pitch which is mesosphere that is graphitic. It exceeds the temperature after the process of heating treatment. The temperature may be 2200 degree c. these type of turbostratic fibre which is made of carbon have much more tensile strength, in the heating process these type of carbon fibres might have exceeding young’s modulus which is meant for the stiffness or it is said to be a resistance which may carry an extension during under load and as well as they may contain a high way of thermal conductance.
