THORNEL® offers high-level tensile strength and modulus required in demanding applications

The high stiffness, high tensile strength and low weight of carbon fibers make them popular for use in a wide variety of applications. When combined with a polymer resin, the resulting carbon-fiber-reinforced composite material exhibits the high strength-to-weight ratio ideal for use in challenging structural applications.

THORNEL® PAN- and pitch-based carbon fibers have a long history of use in both aerospace and industrial markets providing exceptional performance for advanced composite applications. The THORNEL® portfolio includes a range of performance grades and tow sizes sold in continuous, chopped, mat and woven form.

THORNEL® carbon fiber products:

  • Optimize interface chemistry to ensure maximum translation of fiber properties through resin matrices.
  • Offer high-level tensile strength and modulus required in demanding applications.
  • Support existing qualifications and performance databases for use in aerospace applications.
