JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Europe 2014 - UHT’s innovation makes it possible to convert standard PAN-based carbon fibre into high-modulus carbon fibre.
It provides more efficient and convenient access to intermediate-modulus (IM) and high-modulus (HM) carbon fibre, no longer depending on precursor quality and huge investments for a complete production line.The company combined a patented ultra-high temperature microwave heating technology with a resizing and re-winding technique to develop a new graphitization system that focuses a large amount of electromagnetic energy inside the carbon fibre and generates very high temperatures for graphitization in a few seconds.Main benefits:
For composite designers, this innovation means more material choices. It induces a whole new business model, enabling composite manufacturers to directly modify standard carbon fibre into higher grades at a more competitive cost.More information:www.uht.com.twBooth: H79
