CARMIX CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic)

CARMIXClick here for other CARMIX products

CARMIX CFRP is a product (prepreg) made by processing a sheet developed using our carbon-based material papermaking technology.

CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) is made by blending carbon fibers into plastic to improve the strength. CARMIX CFRP is a prepreg precursor of CFRP manufactured only in the papermaking process by mixing carbon fibers with thermoplastic resin fibers using wet papermaking technology. We succeeded in creating inexpensive prepreg for CFRP by making a prepreg in one process and using carbon fibers (remaining material). In addition, hot press-molding by lamination or high cycle press-molding using a mold produces 3D parts with superior isotropic strength property in three-dimensional directions, leading to a reduction in molding costs.

The strength of carbon fiber sheet is equable because the uniformity is high.

Lightweight, Strong, Readily processable

High workability

Since the length of carbon fiber is short, this product is expected to be used as a process material with less strain on the cutting tools in hole processing and cutting work.

High yield

The carbon fibers contained up to the end faces prevent the disengagement or breakage of the end faces, resulting in high yield of prepreg.

Maintenance-free

This product can be used under atmospheric conditions because this product does not rust.

Possible to provide various functions

Not only strength and electric properties of carbon material but also different functions can be provided in the sheet creation process.

High shape retention property

The characteristics of carbon fiber are expected to cause less heat shrinkage and provide stable shape retention properties.
