Carbon Fibre Prices Quadruple
Better get your carbon fiber pieces now guys. The stuff has quadrupled in price from $5/lb about 4 years ago, to $20/lb today. What's behind this jump in price? Apparently Boeing and Airbus are buying up ALL the CF they can find to help build their new airplanes. The use of carbon in these new planes contribute to a 20% reduction in fuel costs. However, that means bad news for the rest of the people who need carbon to make their products. Like Saleen and Pagani who use CF exclusively in making their cars. Or the bike, sporting goods, and car accessories industries. So.. get your CF hoods and parts now while you can.
