WHAT IS CARBON FIBER?
Carbon fiber or “graphite fiber” is a durable material that is made of fibers that are five to ten micrometers in diameter. It’s a strong material that is used to replace steel, and is often found in aircraft and sporting equipment (e.g. tennis rackets, archery bows, hockey sticks).Carbon fiber is also found in wallets. This is because carbon fiber can block radio frequency identification (RFID) signals. Aside from aluminum, copper, and alloy nickel, RFID-blocking wallets can contain layers of carbon fiber.
Carbon fiber wallets are, without a doubt, the most durable type of wallet in the market. That’s why most tactical wallets are made of them.
Buyer beware! If you find a “carbon fiber wallet that’s being sold for $20, it’s likely fake. Always buy a carbon fiber wallet from a reputable brand such as Trayvax.
