Q: What is Carbon Fiber?
A: Carbon fiber is a cutting-edge material, which is currently used in aerospace, military and high-end racing manufacturing. The integration of carbon fiber into today's various performances and luxury cars will soon create fanatical fans for this space age material.
Q: Where are Ahacarbon products made?
A: All of Ahacarbon products are made in our Chinese factory. In fact, most carbon fiber products come from China, but most of them don't admit it because they are local distributors. Our factory is the largest manufacturer of carbon fiber products in Asisa/China.
Q: Where do our parts ship from?
A: Some of our products are shipped from California, and some will be shipped directly from our China factory. However, this does not affect our after-sales service, and we will provide you with after-sales service that exceeds any similar company.
Q: What are DRY and WET Carbon Fiber?
A: Of the many different terms associated with carbon fiber, the terms "dry" and "wet" carbon fiber may cause the most confusion. Each type has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, but understanding the differences will help lead you toward making a better-informed decision about which to choose for your needs.
The terms “dry” and “wet” in carbon fiber refer to how the product is produced or manufactured. Each has its own unique approach, but the result is actually quite different in terms of weight, strength, and other factors.
Q: What is Dry Carbon Fiber?
A: Dry carbon fiber is formed by using a pre-preg or impregnated piece of carbon materials. This piece of carbon is first placed into a mold, and then into a sealed vacuum to properly cure. This particular method creates the least amount of waste and forms a lighter version of carbon than the “wet” method. The vacuuming process of making dry carbon means that there are fewer pinholes and almost no air pockets that form in the carbon. Dry carbon is the highest quality version of carbon fiber products that are produced.
However, it is 3 to 4 times more expensive to produce than its counterpart.
Advantages of Dry Carbon Fiber
- 60% lighter
- Significantly stronger
- Superior manufacturing process
- Uses a dry finish for enhancing its cosmetic appearance
Q: What is Wet Carbon Fiber?
A: Wet carbon fiber uses a different method of manufacturing. In this process, the carbon fiber is laid out by hand into a mold using a dry cloth. Then, a mixture of two parts resin, and one part carbon is put together and applied to the cloth before being placed inside a bag and heated in a vacuum. Due to this method, carbon fiber weaves are far more affordable. Because it is far less expensive to create carbon fiber using the wet method, most carbon fiber parts are created “wet”.
However, wet carbon fiber is subject to having more air bubbles which can create weaknesses, and wavy fiber weaves which are less consistent that the dry counterpart.
Advantages of Wet Carbon Fiber
- Far cheaper to produce, meaning a less expensive product
- Has a very shiny, wet appearance which can be attractive
Q: How do you pack our parts?
A: All products would be triple packed to avoid shipping damage.
Q: How can I track my order?
A: We would update tracking number once we ship so that you can know the situation of your products in time.
Q: What if I make a mistake in my order?
A: Please contact us at Michael@ahacarbon.net in time and we will work to correct the problem as soon as possible.
