Carbon Fiber FMC (CF-SMC) is a sheet-type intermediate material made of cut high-strength carbon fiber impregnated with thermosetting resin. This material can be press molded, substantially reducing molding time compared to conventional autoclave or oven molding.
In addition, compared with carbon fiber intermediates of Continuous fibers, the random arrangement of Short fibers ensures fluidity and makes it possible to mold intricately shaped parts like those with ribs and bosses.
Carbon fiber pellets are thermoplastic molding materials created by blending carbon fiber with various resins to achieve performance that is superior to conventional reinforced resins. Advanced physical properties can be achieved by combining different base resins and carbon fibers, according to the specific application.
Carbon fiber composite materials, also known as carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP), are composite materials made of carbon fibers and resin (mainly epoxy resin). As light, strong, and hard materials, they are used in wide range of applications such as sporting goods, industrial, aircraft and automobile components. By selecting suitable resin, it is possible to add features like heat resistance, impact resistance, and flame retardant, and thus provide superior characteristics not found in conventional metals and ceramics to enable a reduction in the weight of parts, give freer design.
Golf Shafts Product Page - Carbon fiber has been developed into a leading material in the field of sports equipment, due to its excellent design flexibility and its superior heat and impact resistance. The share of CF shafts in the golf shaft market has been growing for many years, driven especially by strong demand for lightweights, and it continues to grow. (CF shafts are produced by wrapping sheets of carbon fiber impregnated with epoxy resin, known as “prepregs,” around a metal core, and then curing at high temperature.)
C/C (carbon fiber reinforced carbon) composites are made of carbon matrix reinforced with carbon fiber, and have high strength, high elasticity, high toughness, and ultra-high heat resistance, and can be used at temperatures above 1,000ºC.
C/SiC, also known as ceramic matrix composite (CMC), is a composite material with a ceramic matrix, and our CMC is reinforced with carbon fiber. It has higher strength and elasticity than C/C composite, and can be used in a wider variety of applications.
CARBOLEADER® is a carbon roller that simultaneously offers light weight, high rigidity, and a high critical number of revolutions. It is used for a wide range of applications, including separators for rechargeable batteries, for optical applications and all kinds of films, for printing, and paper manufacture. It can significantly increase productivity and reduce costs by improving production quality and speed, and reducing defect rates.
