Flexibility

CN: Can be bent through large angles and back to original shape with no change.

Metals are very difficult to bend back into the exact original shape.

Strength

CN: Up to 50 times stronger than high-strength steel.

Kevlar is about 25 times stronger than high-strength steel.

Density

CN: About 1.35 g/cm^3

Kevlar: 1.44 g/cm^3

Carbon fibres: 1.75 g/cm^3

Aluminium: 2.7 g/cm^3

Conductivity

CN: 1000 times higher than pure copper

Pure copper has high conductivity

Heat transmission

CN: 15
