Iran to develop carbon fibers used to produce centrifuges

Iran has announced plans to develop carbon fibers for the production of centrifuges, Israel Radio reported on Sunday.
Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said that the decision was made to produce carbon fibers at home because of the difficulty Iran was encountering when trying to procure them from foreign suppliers as a result of international sanctions, according to the report.Carbon fiber is an extremely strong material, which is light, flexible, and heat resistant. It is therefore used frequently in aerospace sciences, civilian and military engineering, and to make centrifuges used in the uranium enrichment process, the report said.
