We offer various forms of materials including UD prepreg in which carbon fibers are drawn uni-directionally and impregnated with resin and cross prepreg which is carbon-fiber-woven cloth impregnated with resin.
In particular, products using DIALEAD, that is ultra-high modulus pitch-based carbon fiber are widely used as materials essential for manufacturing of parts and components for various industrial machines represented by carbon rollers and robot hands. Other applications include sports, construction / civil engineering, and aerospace industries. The HX1 Series is a prepreg impregnated with special epoxy resin developed on the assumption of use in a high temperature range. Using this prepreg, it is possible to expand the range of applications of CFRP products.
DIALEAD is a pitch-based carbon fiber supported by many proprietary technologies as a result of coal chemistry by Mitsubishi Chemical over many years. The product is widely applied to fields such as aerospace, industry, and sports.
Mitsubishi Chemical continues to develop an ever-expanding value chain from raw materials to final product through the use of PAN-based carbon fiber and pitch-based carbon fiber.
Carbon fibers are one quarter the weight of steel but have about 10 times the strength; thereby creating a light and tough material that is stronger than conventional metal materials. Carbon fibers have a variety of features that include being electrically conductive, strongly wear-resistant, and transparent to X-rays. They are mainly used in composite materials in combination with plastics. Mitsubishi Chemical's carbon fibers have obtained the Japan Industrial Standard of quality management system for the aerospace and defense industry (JIS Q 9100), and we are continuing to raise our quality control levels further still.
PYROFIL™ carbon fiber and its composites, are advanced high-performance materials born from technology centered on synthetic high polymer chemistry, in which Mitsubishi Chemical excels. We have an integrated framework for production that includes polymerization of acrylonitrile (PAN), spinning of PAN fiber (precursor),carbonization of a precursor (carbon fiber), weaving, prepregging, and chopping of carbon fiber.
We manufacture high-performance and high-quality carbon golf shafts utilizing our consistent production process that starts from the carbon material. Our shafts are used by an overwhelmingly large percentage of the world's top players and are there during great moments in golf history. Such is the testament of the performance of these shafts. We develop and provide many different products that are ideal for not only professional golfers but also casual golfers, senior golfers, and female golfers.
CARBOLEADER is a carbon roller simultaneously realizing lightweight, high stiffness and a high critical number of revolutions. The product is used in a comprehensive range of fields including LCDs, film manufacturing, printing, and papermaking and substantially contributes to improve production quality, acceleration of production speed, and productivity improvement by reduced defect rates and cost reduction.
DIALEAD composite is a carbon fiber composite material compressed by resin. The formal name is carbon fiber reinforced plastics or CFRP. Taking advantage of excellent properties not available from conventional metals and ceramics, the product is widely used in various applications.
Pyrofil pellets are a thermoplastic molding material that is made from blending our PAN-based carbon figure Pyrofil product with our pitch-based carbon fiber Dialead with various resins to achieve performance better than typical reinforced resins.
We carefully select the base resin and carbon fiber materials in accordance with specific applications to provide products of the highest quality unmatched in the industry.
Structural Repair and Strengthening Carbon Fiber Fabric
Carbon fiber boasts many advantageous features:
It has a specific gravity just 1/4 that of iron, yet approximately 10 times the strength of steel, and it is highly chemically stable, making it resistant to salt damage.
Replark™ is a repair and reinforcement material made of unidirectional carbon fiber for steel and concrete structures. As a fabric, Replark™ can be applied to structures of various shapes and offers excellent workability.
The grade of Replark™ made with PAN-based carbon fibers can be used to enhance the load bearing capacity of such structures as bridge columns, while the high-elastic-modulus grade made with pitch-based carbon fibers can greatly reduce rebar stress.
e－Plate is a carbon fiber reinforced plastic strip manufactured by PULTRUSION method. Since it greatly increases the amount of reinforcement per unit width compared with a carbon fiber fabric. One strip of e-Plate enables great reinforcing effects to be obtained.
