Carbon Fibers & Composite Materials
Mitsubishi Rayon's carbon fibers are made from acrylic fibers carbonized at high temperature. By precisely creating many layers of carbon molecules, a light and tough material is created that is stronger than conventional metal materials. Carbon fibers have one quarter of the weight of steel but 10 times the strength.
Carbon fibers are electrically conductive, strongly wear-resistant, and transparent to X-rays. They are mainly used in composite materials in combination with plastics.
The Mitsubishi Rayon Group has obtained the JISQ9100 quality assurance system certification for the aerospace industry, and we are continuing to work to raise our quality control levels still further.
Carbon fiber tow is a bundling of carbon filaments in units of several thousand to several tens of thousands. It can being processed in various ways, weaving cloth fabric, Prepreging and so on.
We offer materials in a variety of forms, including woven cloth and UD prepreg – uni-directional carbon fibers impregnated with resins.
These materials are used in the wide range of applications such as manufacturing of sporting goods, machinery parts and medical equipment, as well as the civil engineering and aerospace industries.
Mitsubishi Rayon's carbon-fiber processing technologies are highly sought after for golf-club shafts. We provide support to many tour players through our own high-performance brand. In addition, we supply shafts to a number of golf-club makers on an OEM basis.
