Polymer Carbon Composite CARBOPRINT® P1



Applications that require non-metallic materials will profit significantly from polymer carbon composites. This material is temperature resistant up to 200 °C - without creeping effects common among other polymers. Depending on the choice of polymer, properties such as mechanical or chemical stability can be adjusted to customer requirements.

CARBOPRINT P components are made by infiltrating CARBOPRINT C bodies with polymers.

The advantages of CARBOPRINT® P are:

  • Temperature stability - heat resistant < 200 °C
  • Low weight - porous carbon structure and low density resins
  • New material design - infiltration with appropriate resins of choice
