Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic
CFRP
Carbon Fiber (a.k.a. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic, CFRP) is a fiber containing at least 90% carbon by weight, obtained by pyrolysis of an appropriate precursor fiber. It is a fiber used as yarns, felt, or powder like short monofilaments with diameters smaller than 10 micrometers, consisting of at least 92 wt% carbon. They are mainly applied to reinforce polymers, in the same manner that glass fibers, but presenting superior stiffness, combined with high strength and low density.
The uses and applications of Carbon Fiber may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Carbon Fiber are primarily polyacrylonitrile (PAN) based; pitch based; and rayon based.

Updated Reports Examining Carbon Fiber Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Carbon Fiber manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Carbon Fiber process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Carbon Fiber production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q1 2024).

Carbon Fiber Production from PAN Fiber

This report provides a techno-economic analysis of a typical Carbon Fiber production process starting from polyacrylonitrile (PAN) fiber in the United States. In this process, PAN fiber is first stabilized. The stabilized PAN passes then through carbonization, surface treatment and sizing, before being winded.

The cost analyses presented in the report Carbon Fiber E11A target a 2.50 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Carbon Fiber Production from Pitch

This report presents a feasibility study of a process for Carbon Fiber production from petroleum pitch in the United States. The process starts with a preparation step that converts the pitch into mesophase pitch. The mesophase pitch is then stabilized and passes through carbonization, graphitization, surface treatment and sizing, before being wound.

About Carbon Fiber. Carbon Fiber (a.k.a. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic, CFRP) is a fiber containing at least 90% carbon by weight, obtained by pyrolysis of an appropriate precursor fiber. It is a fiber used as yarns, felt, or powder like short monofilaments with diameters smaller than 10 micrometers, consisting of at least 92 wt% carbon. They are mainly applied to reinforce polymers, in the same manner that glass fibers, but presenting superior stiffness, combined with high strength and low density.

Carbon Fiber Uses. The uses and applications of Carbon Fiber may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Carbon Fiber are primarily polyacrylonitrile (PAN) based; pitch based; and rayon based.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
