Carbon fiber cases are most noted for their high tensile strength and resistance to extremes in temperature. In these case, the carbon fiber (also known as “carbon graphite” or “graphite fiber”) provides a good amount of protection while also maintaining a low weight. While the look of carbon fiber tablet cases may be indistinguishable from those of other materials, users may be assured of strong, durable material not found in some organic or plastic alternatives.
The most popular format of carbon fiber case is the tablet back protector, but those seeking the protective qualities of the synthetic can find models within folio cases, tablet bags and tablet sleeves, perhaps made up to resemble an organic material.
Would-be owners of a carbon fiber case are at a bit of a disadvantage in terms of choice, the great majority of such tablet cases are colored in basic black or gray, due to the natural limitations of the material.
