In the hockey stick industry, carbon fiber is used to make composite materials that are lighter, stronger, and stiffer than traditional materials, such as wood or aluminum. Composite materials are made by combining carbon fiber with a resin matrix that binds the fibers together and gives them shape and structure. Composite materials can be molded into different shapes and sizes to create hockey sticks with different features and characteristics.
However, not all carbon fibers are the same. In this blog post, we will compare and contrast three different types of carbon fibers that are heavily used in top end ice hockey stick manufacturing.
