Is Carbon Fiber Material So Expensive?


Carbon fiber material has many excellent properties, low density, high specific strength and specific modulus, no creep, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, and excellent X-ray transmittance. It can be called the king of prototype materials, but carbon fiber Materials have so many advantages but have not been applied on a large scale. The fundamental reason is that they are expensive. Let’s take a look at this article.
 
The manufacture of carbon fiber includes four processes of fiber spinning, thermal stabilization , carbonization, and graphitization. The accompanying chemical changes include dehydrogenation, cyclization, pre-oxidation, oxidation and deoxidation, which need to be produced through complex processes. Carbon fiber, the production cost is high, and the natural price also increases.
 
The world’s carbon fiber production reaches more than 40,000 tons per year. A few developed countries in the world, such as Japan and the United States, have mastered the core technology of carbon fiber production, and have large-scale production. They have always maintained a strict technical blockade of China’s carbon fiber industry. Therefore, for some high-performance carbon fibers to rely on imports, it is inevitable that the price is expensive.
 
China Be-cu Prototype Material Technology Co., Ltd. has a production workshop of more than 5,000 square meters, with large-scale hot presses, autoclaves, hydroforming tables, Cnc high-speed milling machines and other large-scale equipment, which can meet the needs of customers in various fields of carbon fiber products ,Quality Assurance.

 

Is Carbon Fiber Material So Expensive?

ISO 9001 certified. BE-CU Prototype Offering CNC machining carbon fiber and other manufacturing services for carbon fiber marterial. Various capabilities include notching, labeling, drilling carbon fiber, grinding, laser cutting carbon fiber, finishing, plating, marking, CNC milling carbon fiber and turning carbon fiber.We stock high quality 3k carbon fiber sheet in a variety of thickness, types and finish. Its a great material used in applications where light weight and strength are needed such as drones. Unlike other workshops, we have no min order and are often filling orders with a single part. We also don’t make you pay for the full sheet and you only get charged for what is used. With a large selection of material, you should find everything you need to make your project come to life. We are also able to handle larger production runs and provide a competitive pricing. If we don’t have the material or finish you require, we are more the willing to look at bringing it in for you.

What Is Carbon Fiber?Carbon fiber is made of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) (or pitch, viscose) and other organic fibers by carbonization (removal of most elements except carbon) by pyrolysis method under inert gas at high temperature above 1,000 °C. Inorganic polymer fibers with a carbon content of more than 90%.
