Military: Lightweighting with Carbon Fiber

Accelerating Innovation with Composites

Carbon fiber is both lightweight AND strong, making it undoubtedly one of the best-performing and sought-after composite materials for numerous military applications. Not only can carbon fiber save weight, cost and time, it can also be used to produce parts that are more flexible, resilient and corrosion resistant. Additional carbon fiber benefits, such as low thermal expansion, only further its case as an ideal alternative to metal parts.

A minority-owned small business with manufacturing facilities in Jasper, GA, our team of engineers are THE experts in carbon fiber. We have the ability to design and manufacture durable carbon fiber parts and deliver in some of the fastest turnaround times in the industry.

We had a very unique R&D project and needed someone with a good understanding of wheels and the knowledge and resources to apply CFRP technology to wheel products. ESE Carbon turned out to be the perfect fit! Our relationship can be better described as a team rather than an external resource since our goals are extremely well-aligned.
