Carbon Conversions Carbon Fiber Products

 

Almost any product can be manufactured from a carbon fiber foundation, but plastics are particularly easy to produce. The material is inexpensive, durable but lightweight–ideal for high performance parts. Carbon fiber:

  • Demonstrates steel strength but is 80 percent lighter
  • Is stiffer than conventional materials
  • Resists corrosion and fatigue damage better than conventional materials
  • Withstands extreme vibration and impact
  • Resists temperature-based contraction and expansion
  • Absorbs sound, magnetism and electricity  

 

We strip carbon fiber down to a discontinuous state and provide it in various forms to accommodate nearly every composite process used in manufacturing. With carbon fiber, you gain greater flexibility for your application.

Chopped Fiber

 

Chopped fiber is available in lengths ranging from 1/8 to 1 inch, most often used in thermoplastic compounding and injection molding processes for applications that span automotive, electronics and sporting goods.

 

Try:

  • re-Evo™ HSC: high strength chopped fiber
  • re-Evo™ IMC: intermediate modulus chopped fiber
  • re-Evo™ BCF: bulk chopped fibers

Non-Woven Mat

 

Non-woven mat is derived from random fibers laid in a 48-inch width. It reduces weight and cost in processes that include closed/open mold infusion, pre-preg and compression molding. You’ll find it to be automation-friendly, lauded for its ability to keep lines running.

 

Try:

  • re-Evo™ MCF: non-woven mat using 100% recycled carbon fibers
  • re-Evo™ MCO: non-woven mat using 100% recycled carbon fibers commingled with thermoplastic fibers

 

We can also provide 3-dimensional preforms using our patented 3DEP® process, recommended for complex components and design consolidation.

Save money in procurement, disposal or production

Because Carbon Conversions recycles, reclaims, recovers and repurposes carbon fiber, we can introduce this material into your supply chain at a point that’s most cost-effective.

 

Procurement: we help you acquire raw and inexpensive forms of carbon fiber, derived from our stock of recycled material, with diversified material supply contracts. This model helps you stay ahead of demand growth.

 

Production: we recommend innovative ways to use/apply the material for products of greater or equal strength at a lower cost.

 

Disposal: we’ll take your carbon fiber waste materials or end-of-life products, extract the carbon fiber and sell it back to you in various forms of Carbon Conversions products. You avoid steep landfill charges and can use the raw material in the most efficient way, whether it is producing the same or completely new products.

 

Why is reclaimed carbon fiber better?

 

You reduce traditional energy consumption using reclaimed carbon fiber, in lieu of procuring new carbon fiber.

By recycling, you help eliminate landfill volume.

Product lightweighting reduces energy usage and emissions in applications that include industrial and transportation.

You’ll reduce manufacturing costs, especially in over specified applications.

By partnering with Carbon Conversions, you gain a tight material supply, manufacturing efficiency and traceability, product quality and inexpensive disposal.
