Reports Available in Subscriptions

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. 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 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Carbon Fiber production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

Carbon Fiber Production from PAN - Cost Analysis | Carbon Fiber E11A

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.

Carbon Fiber Production from Pitch - Cost Analysis | Carbon Fiber E21A

This report presents a feasibility study of a process for Carbon Fiber production from petroleum pitch in the USA. 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.
