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.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Carbon Fiber production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
