C/C composite

C/C composite is a carbon-carbon composite material reinforced by high strength carbon fiber for the purpose of improving strength and shock resistance of carbon materials. It is a hi-tech carbon material that is equally selected for general industrial use as it is used in advanced technological fields such as aerospace and semiconductor manufacture. To meet the diversified needs of the 21st century, the Toyo Tanso Group offers a filament winding type in our FW Series, a two-dimensional type in our CX Series and special grade composites.

C/C composite is a carbon-carbon composite material reinforced by high strength carbon fiber, which has superior properties such as light weight, high mechanical strength, and high elasticity. Because of their unique features, our C/C composites (CX series) are used in a wide range of fields such as electronics, environment and energy, general industrial furnaces, and automobiles and other means of transport.

High mechanical strength, high elasticity, and high toughness


C/C composites have higher strength, flexural resistance, and resistance to cracking and chipping, compared to isotropic graphite materials. C/C composites can be used with assurance, as the fractures do not propagate rapidly in them.

Ultra heat resistance


C/C composites have higher strength at high temperatures compared to metallic materials. They can be used even at ultra-high temperatures of 2000℃ or higher in inert atmospheres.

Light- weight and easy to handle


C/C composites have low density compared to metallic materials and therefore, make light weight designing possible.

High thermal conductivity


A thermal conductivity higher than copper has been achieved (in CX-2002) through the use of carbon structure control technology, which involves our superior chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) treatment.
