Carbon fiber or polyurethane

So I was looking at two different splitters for my car one carbon fiber and the other polyurethane now I don't really know the difference ? Which one is better ? Which ones Stronger?? Is there a difference?

Now some of you are going to be like "google it " but I want first hand experienced responses. Tell me what one u think is better !!

Which one is better? Depending on what you plan to use it for
Which ones Stronger?? Polyurethane
Is there a difference? Yes

Carbon fiber is basically very thin strands of carbon. The strands can be twisted together, like yarn. The yarns can be woven together, like cloth. When combined with a plastic resin and wound or molded it forms carbon fiber reinforced plastic (often referred to as carbon fiber) which has a very high strength-to-weight ratio, and is extremely rigid although somewhat brittle. have a very high heat tolerance.

Polyurethane is a plastic material, It can be either rigid or flexible

hope this helps
