What is Carbon Cordage?
Carbon cordage is braided using carbonized polymer thread also known as tow. The raw material for the fibers is made from PAN or Rayon. The continuous fibers are manufactured and then carbonized through a series of rollers, combined into bundles, and collected into spools for easy use. The cords are comprised of 4,000 to 36,000 individual filaments in a braided structure. Maximum service temperature in an oxidizing environment is 400℃ and in vacuum 2400℃.
- High strength and lightweight.
- Excellent thermal stability and good corrosion resistance.
- High tensile and chemically inert to most chemicals from pH 0-14, excluding strong oxidizers like nitric or sulphuric acids.
- Sewing or banding carbon or graphite felts in vacuum inert atmosphere furnaces or pump packing.
- Wrapping of parts to provide insulation on certain sections and to hold parts in place.
- Quick repair applications where bailing wire will not work.
- Can also be used as heating cables due to the material’s electrical conductivity.
