Continuous multi-filament TOW. The most common form of carbon fibre is the high strength, high stiffness form commonly used in composites. These are made by a complicated process from textile pre-cursor yarns made from either polyacrylonitrile (PAN) or pitch that results in a predominantly graphitic stucture highly oriented in the direction of the fibre axis. This high orientation gives them their remarkable properties which includes a small negative coefficient of thermal expansion in the axial direction as well as remarkably high specific strength and stiffness. These fibres are available from stock in a range of stiffnesses and, to a lesser extent, strengths, together with several types of fabric all made from carbon fibre of the most common property level ie 230GPa (Type XAS or 300). In addition, there are available from stock one fibre and one fabric of entirely different forms of carbon. The fibre is a sewing thread construction made from carbon yarn of much lower
tensile properties in order to give a really flexible thread and the fabric is of activated charcoal (not available as yarn as it is made directly from a pre-cursor textile fabric.
