That`s really too bad......... Carbon fiber will loose when battle`ing alloys. It is very hard......and have characteristics like say glass......So when scored, by the alloys.....they give up fast. So with that in mind...... You can produce a good out come.....but need to spend some extra time engineering your system. Than can sometimes be as simple as put a washer on the rivets....before " popping" them...... If the manufacture ignores those issues....their...in this case.....cans will fall apart in a short period. If it is just the rivets that pulled out.... They really should honor it...... If they don`t..... Stay away from them.... That is poor composite quality.... Indicated by that they have no experience with composites. Your can can.... be fixed by a experienced " compositour"....
