What is the difference between Carbon Fiber and Carbon Crystal?
 
As a new concept lots of people can not know well about carbon fiber and carbon crystal. Actually both of these two kinds of materials are belong to carbon fiber. Usually we say carbon fiber means the original long fiber carbon, while the carbon crystal means the scattered short fiber. As short fibers are scattered, so they need to be combined with other material like PE or epoxy resin so as to be a full unit. In the market carbon crystal always occur in the form of a panel. That’s why we always refer to a panel when we say carbon crystal. So we can say carbon crystal is a panel made by combination of short fiber(leftover material of original long fiber) and epoxy resin or PE. 
 
To say it simply, we can compare the carbon fiber to a solid wood furniture made by the main trunk of a tree, but carbon crystal are made by the wood fragments.
