Improving the Strength of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Thermo Plastics (CFRTP)

Improving Bending Stress through Post Processing
(Joint research project with the Innovative Composite Center (ICC) at Kanazawa Institute of Technology)

CFRTP has garnered attention in applications such as automotive parts, where improving mechanical strength is a major issue.
We partnered with ICC for joint research into improving bending stress by irradiating polyamide-based CFRTP with electron beams (EB).
Electron beam processing causes polyamide crosslinking creating a complex interwoven structure with the carbon fibers which is considered to be one factor increasing adhesion strength.
