FORGED CARBON

Forged carbon is a technology that uses carbon fiber composite material and was developed jointly between Lamborghini and Callaway Golf Company who introduced it in their Sesto Elemento concept car and Diablo Octane drivers, respectively.

The application of this technology was originally developed at the Automobili Lamborghini Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory (ACSL) in Seattle, WA, where the Lamborghini-Callaway partnership was initially formed. This partnership, along with forged composite technology, was announced at the 2010 Paris Motor Show when Lamborghini unveiled its concept car

Forged Carbon is essentially an upgrade on existing carbon fiber technology. Paolo Feraboli, founder and head of the Advanced Composite Structures Laboratory, and inventor of Forged Composite technology describes it as ‘a revolution in Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) compounds’.

According to Feraboli, Forged Composite is not a specific material or a single process, but a comprehensive technology that combines material characteristics, process specifications, and engineering and design knowledge, which, when fused together, allows for the creation of a composite carbon fiber part.

Typically, carbon fiber is made usable by laying it up in sheet form and infusing it with resin. 
Forged Composite, on the other hand, is a unique technology which involves using a paste of fibers mixed with a resin to be squeezed out into various forms.
