The History of Carbon Fiber

Carbon Fiber reinforcement being applied to a Buffalo basement

Carbon fiber has been confined, until recently, to military and aerospace applications – or at least to places where cost was no object. Manufacturing carbon fiber is now much less expensive, since large quantities can be produced, and a wide variety of industries now take advantage of its incredible properties. Proven over the last 20 years, carbon fiber is durable, incredibly strong and safe. It does not mildew or rust, nor is it subject to alkali deterioration.

Plus, once we lock the carbon fiber into an epoxy matrix, its strength is sealed in – it won’t creep, stretch or bend over time. Fortress Stabilization is dedicated to developing products that take advantage of this material and its incredible characteristics while retaining a simple, reliable application method.
