Decrypting Carbon Fiber
Carbon fiber is made of organic parent fiber such as polyacrylonitrile (PAN) (or asphalt, viscose) by pyrolysis method under high temperature above 1000 degrees Celsius inert gas (the result is to remove most elements except carbon) Is an inorganic polymer fiber with a carbon content of more than 95%
Carbon fiber is a new material with high strength, light weight and excellent mechanical properties. Because of its excellent comprehensive performance and high added value, carbon fiber and its composite materials are called “black gold” in the 21st century. It has extensive application prospects in the fields of national defense, military industry and civilian use, and is an important strategic material for the development of national economy.
Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) -based carbon fiber has the characteristics of high strength, light weight, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, excellent electrical properties, etc., and has strong resistance to compression and bending. Its production process is simpler than other methods and has been enhanced. The dominant position in composite materials remains. High-performance carbon fibers made from polyacrylonitrile fiber precursors account for more than 90% of global carbon fiber production.
Carbon fiber composite materials are mainly structural or functional materials made of carbon fiber as a reinforcing material, resin, metal, and ceramic lamps as matrix materials.
At present, carbon fiber composite materials are mainly resin-based composite materials (CFRP), which account for more than 90% of the total carbon fiber composite market share.
Carbon fiber is known as the apex of the comprehensive performance of materials in the world today, the black revolution of the 21st century, and a new material developed to meet the needs of cutting-edge industrial development such as aerospace, aviation, and atomic energy.
Carbon fiber is a kind of high-performance fiber. Carbon fiber has been widely used in various fields of the military and civilian industries, from the civil industry such as aerospace, aviation, automotive, electronics, machinery, chemical industry, light textile and other industries to sports equipment and leisure products industries:
In recent years, the application of carbon fiber in the aerospace field has shrunk, and the market for industrial applications has been optimistic. Compared with aerospace and sports and leisure products, the demand for carbon fiber in industrial applications is increasing. The continuous development of infrastructure, oil and gas exploration, pressure vessels, composite rollers, and marine components has continued to increase the application of carbon fiber in this field.
