The effect of water absorption and chemical resistance behavior of materials against acids and alkali solutions was investigated for a carbon fiber polymer matrix composite material. The specimens were immersed in acids and alkalis for several hours and chemical resistance was calculated. The sample specimen carbon fiber materials were filled with filler materials in different ratios. The filler materials are Sic and graphite materials. The behavior against weathering conditions was studied by swelling behavior in toluene solvent with 10% sodium chloride solution at room temperature.
