Carbon/Carbon – By Neftec
The Neftec Corporation is a Japanese manufacturer who specialise in Short-Fibre Carbon/Carbon Composites used in High-temperature environments.
Neftec has a long-standing history in the research, development and production of Carbon/Carbon composites (also know as C/C or CFC) Neftec primarily focuses on short-fibre composites. This type of C/C composite has many well proven advantages over more traditional long-fibre composites. These advantages are one of the main driving forces behind Neftec specialising in this C/C composite.
Neftec’s commitment in short-fibre C/C allows for a diverse and adaptive composite to suit today’s ever changing modern industries.
The Research and development of short-fibre Carbon/Carbon composite is specialist, requiring vast expertise and investment. This makes short-fibre Carbon/carbon a rarity from other composite manufacturers. Other manufacturers will also produce a variety of carbon products, such as Graphites along side Carbon/carbon.
For Neftec to specialise in core composite that covers many applications means we can offer a premium product while still being very competitive. This allows us to offer high quality, durability and strength. While being very adaptable to suit a vast range of markets. And most importantly, being economical to the end user.
To produced short-fibre C/C, Neftec developed their own advanced manufacturing techniques called the ‘PM” Technology. This manufacturing technique is unique to the Neftec Corporation.
Today you will find Neftec Carbon/Carbon Composites in an extensive range of industries. This includes, vacuum heat-treatment, Solar power, Electronics, along with aerospace propulsion, and automotive friction applications.
Neftec has over 40 years of experience dedicated to Carbon/Carbon Composite research, development and manufacturing. The president and chief engineer at Neftec Corporation, is Mr Takao Nakagawa.
Mr Nakagawa original started working with C/C Composites in the early 1980s at Tokyo University, he then moved into the oil and gas industry which led to the early development of random-weave, short-fibre C/C. The material was originally designed to be used as a friction material for Motorsport, preliminary clutch and braking applications.
At the time the motorsport industry required a friction material that could be machined into complex shapes that would retain high inter-laminar strength and at the same time offer a low wear rate, while being exceptionally light. Short-fibre C/C made it’s debut in the Japanese Formula F3000 race series.
The short-fibre C/C Composite was then adapted for Heat-treatment and was in use by the mid 1990s. From here on, Mr Nakagawa continued to develop his short-fibre composites as being one of the ultimate materials for high-temperature industrial applications.
Over the years we have built up an extensive portfolio of the highest quality C/C materials and products. Our continued efforts to push the technological boundaries of Carbon/Carbon allows us to offer a multi-functional product that is suited for vast array of industries and specialist fields.
