Carbon fiber products

Toray falsifies data but CAPLINQ still offers quality graphitized carbon paper products

The increas­ing demand for car­bon-based com­pos­ites for cells, bat­ter­ies, blades, elec­trolyz­ers, and more is dri­ving the usage of car­bon fiber in many high-end indus­tries.

Car­bon fiber is known to offer high strength, rigid­i­ty, and ten­sile strength and is gain­ing the pop­u­lar­i­ty with every pass­ing day.

The cur­rent demand for car­bon fiber grows by an esti­mate of 13% per year. But, is expect­ed to top by 100,000 tons in 2018.

But, with anoth­er pil­lar of Japan­ese indus­try- Toray indus­tries admit­ting pro­vid­ing the clients with the false test reports, how is the car­bon fiber mar­ket actu­al­ly affect­ed.

In the arti­cle pub­lished today in the New York Times (Nov, 28) Toray said that it had iden­ti­fied 149 cas­es in which Toray Hybrid Cord altered the data to meet the man­u­fac­tur­ing stan­dards demand­ed by the cus­tomers. They also said that it had sold prod­ucts with fal­si­fied test data to 13 cus­tomers (You can read the full arti­cle at this link: NY Times).

While Toray is not a renowned name out­side of Japan, the influ­ence in Japan and glob­al sup­ply chain were quite con­sid­er­able. But now, the ques­tion we are left with is- Where should the clients head to for high qual­i­ty man­u­fac­tured fiber?

CAPLINQ’s Engineered Fibers Technology

Estab­lished in 1998, EFT was start­ed by a small group of engi­neers who offers you a broad range of high tech­nol­o­gy and high-per­for­mance mate­ri­als. EFT is known to man­u­fac­tur­er the widest range of GDL prod­ucts avail­able in the indus­try.

From a wide range of fiber types to Engi­neered Fiber Tech­nol­o­gy nano- fib­ril­lat­ed fibers, and oth­ers. The prod­ucts include pre­cise short­cut fibers and GDL graphite con­duc­tive papers and pan­els for a fuel cell, elec­trolyz­ers, and oth­er elec­tro­chem­i­cal devices.

With the var­i­ous man­u­fac­tur­ing efforts and com­pre­hen­sive research, EFT’s pro­duc­tion focus­es main­ly on thin papers and lam­i­nat­ed pan­els with the wide range of thick­ness and den­si­ties. EFT also com­bines var­i­ous fiber cut­ting capa­bil­i­ties that unique­ly for­mu­lates with oth­er com­po­nents and sheets at opti­mum tem­per­a­tures for fuel cell eval­u­a­tion and mate­r­i­al char­ac­ter­i­za­tion.

In addi­tion to this, it seeks to join devel­op­ment researchers and pro­grams that are relat­ed to the cus­tomer spe­cif­ic GDL. Also, their lab­o­ra­to­ry facil­i­tates the com­plete mate­ri­als, design­ing, pro­cess­ing, and eval­u­a­tion of the GDL sheets.
