Why Use Composite Materials With My Carbon Fiber Prototype?

When you choose to craft your carbon-fiber prototype with Element 6 Composites, you know you’re getting the best quality through our ISO certification. By utilizing composite engineering, we’re able to craft the strongest lightweight materials through composite technology and our expert craftsmen.

But why use composite materials?



Composite technology combines two or more materials with varying properties in order to engineer the strongest product. While carbon fiber offers nearly twice the strength of steel at almost half the weight, you’re choosing the best option on the market. However, Element 6 Composites doesn’t stop there. Composite engineering combines the lightweight strength of carbon fiber and our state of the art composite materials to offer more rigidity, a higher tensile strength, better compressive strength, and resistance to crushing.


At Element 6 Composites, we offer a number of composite materials designed to prolong the life of your carbon-fiber prototype. Any number of environmental factors may damage your prototype, including fires, projectiles, extreme weather conditions, and excessive weight.

Depending on the environment in which you use your composite prototype, we will recommend the best composite technology to suit your needs. Whether you need the best in compression strength or require a lightweight material that’s resistant to thermal expansion, we’ve got you covered.



Element 6 Composites uses only the best in composite technology to effectively engineer your product. Let’s explore some of the materials we use in composite engineering.
Of course, these benefits vary depending on the type of material you use in composite engineering. There are many different types of materials utilized in composite technology and we offer the best array to fit your needs. Here are some of the materials we offer

  • Honeycomb: polypropylene, Aramid (Nomex), Kevlar, carbon-fiber, and metal.
  • Foam: Airex, Depron, Divinycell
  • Wood: balsa, birch
