Carbon Fiber Composite Materials

Prepreg

Manufacturing and sales for the carbon fiber composite materials (except prepreg for aircraft) are handled by JX Nippon ANCI Corporation.

Overview

As a prepregger, JXTG is a partner who can provide support for molding businesses, including resin development according to the customer's needs.

  • We have over twenty years of experience in prepreg manufacturing at our factory.
  • We can meet requirements for not only pitch-based carbon fiber but PAN-based carbon fiber and other types of engineering plastic fiber.
  • Consult with us about difficult-to-handle special textiles as well.
  • Utilizing resins we have developed, we can manufacture prepreg materials with a variety of characteristics.

Prepreg resins we have developed (examples)

Is composite material performance determined by the fiber alone?

A composite material consists of fiber and matrix resin. Therefore, just because the fiber is good does not mean that the composite will be good.
JXTG has a variety of prepregs that utilize resins developed by us and provide high toughness, high heat resistance, and low outgas.
