Carbon fiber is a high-performance material made up of thin, strong fibers composed mostly of carbon atoms. These fibers are woven together and then coated with a resin to create an incredibly strong, lightweight, and durable composite material. It is a highly desirable material for use in a wide range of industries, such as aircraft and spacecraft parts, racing car bodies, and so on.
The lightweight electric wheelchair becomes more and more popular in recent years, but the common materials have their load limit, just reducing the weight will influence the wheelchairs’ safety performance. So, carbon fiber was applied to the wheelchair industry.
Compared with common wheelchairs, carbon fiber wheelchairs have 2 incomparable advantages:
Light weight and high strength: This is the biggest advantage of a carbon fiber wheelchair. It's about five times lighter than steel and twice as light as aluminum, very friendly for elderly and disabled people.
Great performance: Due to the particularity of the material, carbon fiber wheelchair has many incomparable advantages such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, high strength-to-weight ratio, high chemical resistance, high-temperature tolerance, and low thermal expansion. It means the wheelchair can be designed to be very durable and able to withstand daily use and abuse.
As an electric wheelchair manufacturer in China, JBH has applied carbon fiber materials to different products, including the carbon fiber electric wheelchair, carbon fiber manual wheelchair, and carbon fiber mobility scooter. And we will keep designing more and more carbon fiber products to meet your requirements.
