4M's 2015 Carbon Fiber Conference Poster

Plasma Oxidation is proven:
Makes a better product
Is 3 times as fast
Uses less than 25% of the energy per pound of fiber
Takes up significantly less space (1/3 size)
Reduces carbon fiber manufacturing cost by 20%

4M's 2015 Carbon Fiber Conference Poster

  1. 1. Market Ready Plasma Oxidation Technology This is happening now. 1500 aMT Plasma Oxidation Oven Results in a 175 aMT Plasma Oxidation Oven Plasma Oxidation is proven: Makes a better product Is 3 times as fast Uses less than 25% of the energy per pound of fiber Takes up significantly less space (1/3 size) Reduces carbon fiber manufacturing cost by 20% Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 The smallest replicable section of the 175 aMT oven will be constructed and tested to optimize design and functionality. Lessons learned from Phase I will be used to construct the next replicable size step up that will allow complete optimization. Experience gained in Phase I and Phase II will be used to complete the fully operational 175 aMT Plasma Oxidation Oven. Sustained operation of the full scale oven will commence to demonstrate the technology to the industry and to produce and sell OPF. The Commercialization Plan - Goals Scale the technology by building a 175 aMT-CF Plasma Oxidation Oven. Integrate this oven into an OPF conversion line at same scale to demonstrate the technology to the carbon fiber industry and produce and sell OPF in 24 months. Sell licensed production-scale ovens through partner Litzler. Develop high-strength low-cost precursor through partner Dralon specifically tailored for plasma oxidation. 1 2 3 4
