How long do carbon fiber tubes generally last?

How long can carbon fiber tubes be used in general? When people build houses with wood, they must burn the stakes into charcoal before they are inserted into the ground. After charring, the ground will decay more slowly and have a longer service life. Is the lifespan of carbon fiber materials also the same, will carbon fiber tubes have a long lifespan?

Carbon fiber tube

Although the price of carbon fiber material is slightly higher, it is a popular material in the field of high-end manufacturing. Its excellent performance not only makes it used in the national defense and aerospace industry but also has a large number of applications in many fields such as high-end sports necessities and automobile manufacturing.

Carbon fiber is made up of more than 95 percent carbon, which has a very tight molecular structure and stable chemical properties, making it difficult to be degraded by corrosion and chemical reactions. Carbon fiber production and preparation need thousands of degrees of high temperature, and the temperature of the conventional flame is only about 500 degrees Celsius, so under normal circumstances, fire will not affect the performance of carbon fiber.

The tensile strength of carbon fiber is very high, but it is easy to be damaged by shear force, so the carbon fiber products made can withstand high tensile force, high hardness but relatively brittle, but beyond the bearing limit will appear fracture damage.

Carbon fiber products are generally beautiful in appearance and bright. Because they are more complex with resin, they are excellent in anticorrosion and salt spray prevention. Even if they are placed naturally, they will not be damaged even if they have been used for hundreds of years. In the case of stress and friction, the service life of carbon fiber tube can not be measured, mainly affected by the performance of matrix. Carbon fiber tubes are much higher than plastic ones.
