Light and strong at the same time – this is what designers want from a material that can be used to manufacture energy-efficient components. Lightweight components made of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic possess these characteristics. They consist of two components: high-quality carbon fibers and a plastic matrix into which these fibers are embedded.
Chemical, medication and cosmetic manufacturers are obligated to test their products for possible health risks using appropriate means, as stipulated by various European guidelines. Animal testing is frequently used to determine the dangers of such products to the human eye. Aside from ethical reasons, arguments against this form of testing include high costs, delays due to approval procedures, and concerns whether the results from animal testing can be extrapolated safely to human beings.
