Magnum Venus Products was proud to join chemical engineers from around the world at the Annual Carbon Fiber Show in Knoxville,TN. Carbon fiber is gaining popularity due to its light weight capabilities and durable attributes.

Engineers are taking advantage of the benefits of carbon fiber by making 3D cars such as the Jeep on display at the convention, and even airplanes. Thanks to carbon fiber, the new Boeing 787 is now much more light weight and uses less jet fuel.

“It’s safe and has properties that allow it to take long stress and curves,” said Larry Landis with IDI Composites International. “And it has been used for generations.”

There is a carbon fiber manufacturing facility in Oak Ridge, ORNL.
