The processing of carbon fibers to produce the desired properties from the polymer precursor state to the final carbonized state is a complex and highly technical process. Not only are the basic properties of the carbon fiber per se important but also the application of the proper sizing. Sized fibers used in combination with the proper resin matrix, have the capability to provide a final composite structure with the maximum optimum properties.
