Carbon / Graphite fibers are used in complex 2-D and 3-D shapes which are lightweight, durable, and strong.

carbon_graphiteCarbon / Graphite fiber is a high tensile fiber that is made by heating rayon, polyacrylonitrile fibers, or petroleum residues to appropriate temperatures. They are typically over 90% carburized.

At Bally Ribbon Mills we have woven Carbon / Graphite fibers into highly complex, engineered 2-D and 3-D shapes that have proven use in aerospace composite fabrics, sporting goods and racing auto frames used to form structural and weight-bearing components. The resulting structures are lightweight, very strong, highly resistant to corrosion, and have proven to be stealthy by their virtue of absorbing, rather than reflecting, radar signals.

Carbon / Graphite fiber properties include:
  • High tenacity
  • Abrasion resistant
  • Flame and heat resistant
  • Controlled elongation
  • Chemical resistant (in specific environments)
  • Conductivity
  • Dimensional stability and strength
  • Reduced weight and size
  • Flexibility

Understanding Your Custom Weaving Options

Weaving is a textile production method that uses a loom to interlace two sets of yarn at right angles. To create fabric, the lateral yarn, called the weft, repeatedly crosses […]
