Some of my customers have had equipment packaged in carbon fibre cases. With the handling of these over a period of time, in and out of trucks etc, areas of damage occurred that did not affect the structural integrity of the cases, but left carbon fibres exposed. These would penetrate the skin and being carbon, it appears that the bodies natural defences did not respond, or at lease not appropriately. Secondary infections caused some quite nasty 'problems' in some otherwise very fit individuals. Another nail in the coffin for carbon fibre?
