How we make our Carbon Fiber Wallet
The Carbon Fiber Plates are cut on our Datron Neo, an ultra precise CNC machine with a repeatability accuracy of 23 micron. Due to the extremely high hardness of carbon fiber, we use specially made diamond-coated cutters and spindle speeds of 40.000 RPM with a slow feed rate. This results in smooth edges and a surface that is a pleasure to touch.
All components are manufactured in Germany. The Carbon Fiber Wallet is handmade after your order and customized to your configuration from over 650 variants.
FAQ ABOUT CARBON FIBER WALLETS
Has a Carbon Fiber Wallet RFID-protection?
Yes and No. Carbon fibers can influence and interfere with a signal such as RFID, but this protection is no longer effective against high-powered RFID readers. We recommend for the Carbon Fiber Wallet a RFID protection card or our RFID-Blocker configuration with aluminum coin holder and inlay. When you buy a Carbon Fiber Wallet from AVIATOR, you get an RFID blocking card for free.
Will a Carbon Fiber Wallet cut my Jeans?
No. Our Carbon Fiber Wallet has smooth and rounded edges, so it will not damage your Jeans.
How many coins fit into the Wallet?
It depends on your currency, you can store up to 8 small coins or 4 large coins.
What is the weight of the Carbon Fiber Wallet?
The weight for the configuration with acrylic inlay and carbon coin holder is only 33 grams.
How do I clean the Carbon Fiber Wallet?
For everyday cleaning of dirt, a soft, clean cloth, warm water and possibly a little washing-up liquid is sufficient. Aggressive cleaning agents or cleaning sponges, such as scouring powder or steel wool, can leave scratches on the surface of your wallet.
Most everyone has heard or read about carbon, often in connection with various sports equipment or as equipment in cars. However, it is also increasingly being used in aviation and aerospace. But what actually makes this material, which is also called the material of the future?
How is Carbon Fiber produced?
The path of carbon, or more precisely CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic), usually begins with an organic polymer called polyacrylonitrile. This is processed into carbon fibers with the help of heat, pressure and prestressing. An important step in the processing is also the carbonization (coking) of the polyacrylonitrile.
Several layers of these different carbon fibres are joined together with epoxy resin or thermoplastic under heat and pressure to form a carbon fibre reinforced plastic.
This type of processing keeps carbon fiber flexible and makes it extremely resistant.
What does 1k, 3k or 6k mean in the context of Carbon?
The specification 1k,3k or 6k says something about the filament construction, in other words how many fibers are combined to form a filament yarn. Common types here are 1k, 3k, 6k, but there are also significantly heavier filaments with 24k or 50k. With 3k, 3000 filaments are combined into one yarn, also called roving. Ultimately, the thickness of the yarn also determines the structure of the weave pattern. The Aviator Slim Wallet uses 3k carbon.
What are the properties and advantages of Carbon Fiber?
It is not for nothing that the high-tech material carbon is also referred to as the material of the future.
Five times stronger than steel, carbon stands for lightness, flexibility and tensile strength, and is therefore increasingly being used in aerospace, car manufacturing, the production of medical technology and sports equipment, and many other areas.
Because of its interesting appearance, pleasant feel and extreme resistance to external influences, it is also an excellent base material for purses, suitcases or protective clothing.
It is fully elastic and extremely durable, hardly wears out and still looks good even after a long period of use. So it's practically almost indestructible? No, not quite.
Carbon can withstand high mechanical stresses and can be flexibly bent, but if the stresses are too great, it breaks down abruptly. Apart from this Achilles' heel, however, there is not much that can harm carbon. Even acid or organic solvents can hardly harm the super material.
Unlike metals, carbon does not corrode and is chemically inert, i.e. unaffected by influences such as water or sun.
Why should I buy a Carbon Fiber Wallet?
With its outstanding properties, carbon is also ideally suited as a base material for slim wallets, and it promises long durability.
In summary, there are good reasons to choose a slim wallet made of carbon:
Very high-tensile strength, withstands strong mechanical tension
Withstands even extreme conditions, such as sun and water
Smooth surface and pleasant haptics
High continuity against chemicals and is not attacked by most acids or alkalis
Fully elastic and low material fatigue
Low thermal conductivity
