Carbon fibres obtained from pitch precursor fibres after stabilization treatment, carbonization and final heat treatment.
The term @P04677@-based carbon fibres comprises the @I03355@ as well as the anisotropic @M03851@ (MPP-based carbon fibres). The @I03353@ type belongs to the @C00836@ (low modulus) and is mainly used as @F02363@ in polymers and insulation materials and for similar applications. The anisotropic type (MPP-based carbon fibres) belongs to the carbon fibres type HM and is used mainly for reinforcement purposes due to its high @M03966@ value.
