Carbon Fiber Industrial Park Project of Liaoyuan City
1. Introduction to the Project
1.1 Project Background
1.1.1 Product Introduction
The development of carbon fiber industry in Xi’an District starts early. It has had nearly 30 years of development history. It is developed firstly starting from carbon fiber and common carbon felt which are used in the military, aviation, aerospace and civilian. There are now about 10 large-scale carbon fiber enterprises. Enterprises, from small to large, from weak to strong, have been formed into a complete carbon fiber industrial chain. The profitability grows year by year. Currently, the carbon fiber product system mainly comprised of PAN carbon felt, graphite hard felt stereotyped, composite carbon felt, carbon/carbon plate and viscose-based activated carbon fiber has come into shape.
Meanwhile, carbon fiber enterprises have accumulated abundant technologies and experiences during the processes of research and development and production of carbon fiber. Lots of carbon fiber technicians have been trained. The number of people engaged in this industry is more than 500. These accumulated mature technologies and abundant human resources are the guarantee to build our carbon fiber industry into the provincial leveled base.
The project is planned to build Carbon Fiber Industrial Park in Xi'an District, Liaoyuan City. It is relied on the existing carbon fiber enterprises. However, the cooperation with external partners shall be reinforced. All the local carbon fiber enterprises will be gathered in the park for concentrated development. A new type of industrial cluster with independent intellectual property rights and innovation capability shall be established. The industrial alliance shall be organized in order to co-develop markets and create scale benefits.
1.1.2 Market Overview
Carbon fiber is a new type of high-tech material. The composite material made of carbon fiber is of high strength and it is ultra-light and can resist high temperature and high pressure. Carbon fiber is a new type of material with superior mechanical property. Its specific gravity is less than 1/4 of steel. The tensile strength of carbon fiber resin composite material is generally more than 3500Mpa, which is 7-9 times of that of steel. Its tensile elastic modulus is 230-430Gpa, higher than that of steel. Thus, the ratio of specific strength of CFRP (the strength of material) to its density can reach 2000Mpa/(g/cm3) or more, and the specific strength of A3 steel is only around 59Mpa/(g/cm3), and its specific modulus is higher than that of steel. The higher the strength of the material, the smaller the self weight and the higher the specific modulus, and the larger the rigidity of the component. In this sense, it indicates the carbon fiber industry has broad application prospects. In recent years, with the development of technology and the upgrading and updating of products, the international and domestic demands for carbon fiber products grow rapidly. There are many advantageous properties of carbon fiber, e.g. low density, high specific strength, high specific modulus, high temperature resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, low resistance, high thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion coefficient and radiation resistance etc. For the excellent properties of carbon fiber and its composite materials, they are widely used in aerospace, modern national defense, transportation, clean energy, construction reinforcement, medical equipment, sports and entertainment, power cable and high temperature resistance vacuum sintering furnace, plastics and rubber etc. Their application range is expanding. Now, carbon fiber materials have been used in the automotive wheels.
Firm as rock, tough as hair. It is the qualities of materials that human beings have pursued since ancient times. The 10th SAMPE International Advanced Materials Exhibition was held in Beijing in the end of May 2015. A roll of black braided fabric like cloth caught the attentions of audiences. This is the “dark horse” jumped out from so many other new materials. Carbon fiber not only is of softness and rigidity, but also is not afraid of acid corrosion and high temperature. It also has the advantages such as electrical and thermal conductivity and electromagnetic shielding, etc.
Carbon fiber material is light and its density is only 1/3 of that of plain paper. Its strong supporting capacity makes many recent rising “stars” more attractive and fascinating.
Zero fuel solar-powered aircraft - “Solar Impulse No. 2” made by Swiss started its global flight journey since March 2015. 80% of its overall structure is made of honeycomb carbon fiber material for “warm coat”, so this huge aircraft with wingspan reaching 72 meters and wider than Boeing 747 weighs only 2300 kg, equivalent to the weight of a family car. Thus, more energy will be saved during flight. Meanwhile, it can fly at a height of 8500 meters, and resist the severe chilliness of -30 ℃.
Recently, foreign media published the exoskeleton of latest invented unpowered machinery. It is made of light carbon fiber material. With ingenious biomechanical structure, it can help people to reduce energy consumption by 7% during walking. It is basically equivalent to the reduced weight of 4.5 kg. It is undoubtedly the good news for the disabled who have difficulty in walking and special soldiers who often go trekking.
Although carbon fiber is light and looks like plastic, but in fact its impact resistance is better than that of steel, and its mechanical strength and impact resistance are higher and it is more secure. Therefore, lots of countries are actively developing the carbon fiber industry currently. It is an important support to seize the commanding heights of the next round of industrial and defense competition.
Take car for example. Carbon fiber technology can not only make the body of car lighter, but also strengthen the strength of car body. The car using carbon fiber weights only 20% to 30% of the weight of ordinary steel vehicle but its hardness is 10 times more than that of ordinary steel vehicle. When every 10% of the weight of vehicle is reduced, the fuel consumption is reduced by 6% to 8% and the emission is reduced by 5% to 6%. In the same fuel consumption condition, a car can run the extra distance of about 50 km per hour, which will help for the acceleration and braking of vehicle.
With the rapid development of economy, technology is constantly developing. Carbon fiber production technology is one of many representations of national strength. All-composite turboprop business jet in “Lingshi AG300” Aircraft with our own intellectual property right has successfully completed its maiden flight in Zhuhai. The application of carbon fiber in high-end market in China is starting.
