Hi there. Is carbon fiber's ability to conduct electricity wide spread common knowlage? I've been an aircraft mechanic for all of my adult life with composites starting to make inroads in the industry. I worked for a professional race team for 2 years, the car was at least 75% c/f not counting the engine, and c/f is ever growing in the boating industry. (although not on my cal21, she would faint). Anyway, I never knew how electrically conductive that stuff is untill we had a fire on an airplane. (on the ground, nobody injured) We later hooked up a lightbulb to a battery through it and it shown (?) beautifully. If someone wasn't aware of this property and they mounted devices on it, (switches etc....) they might be in for a rude shock, (pun intended). The fire was small and quick and it melted the glue enough to allow the piece of carbon fiber to be permenantly limp. bad news if it was structure. any thoughts? Thanks. I know my spelling stinks, sorry.
