Carbon fiber products professional R & D manufacturers -How is the reason why the price of carbon fiber is high?
Carbon fiber has a series of advantages, such as light weight, high strength, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance and aging resistance, so many people tend to use carbon fiber products, carbon fiber sheet, carbon fiber tube, carbon fiber automobile parts, carbon fiber profiles, carbon fiber sports equipment, and some high-tech products, but carbon fiber products The price is generally high. What are the reasons for this? Here’s a brief introduction to you:
The main reason for the high price of carbon fiber products is carbon fiber. All carbon fiber products are processed by carbon fiber precursor. Carbon fiber precursor is obtained by pre-oxidation, carbonization and graphitization of carbon fibers with different matrix in high temperature environment. It needs many times of drawing and drying densification. It consumes a lot of energy and costs more. Carbon fiber production is a very complex process, which involves a series of physical and chemical reactions, and now for the pursuit of higher strength and modulus, for this research and development needs to invest a lot of money, such as some performance requirements. High quality products require high quality carbon fiber, so the price is relatively high. The last is the monopoly of technology. We all know that the core technology of carbon fiber is in the hands of a few developed countries such as Japan, the United States and so on. Therefore, the development of domestic carbon fiber industry is rather slow.
Carbon fiber products are expensive, but they have something that traditional materials can not compare with, using carbon fiber materials can bring all aspects of comprehensive benefits.
