Mitsubishi Rayon’s new carbon fibre plant starts production in Otake

 

TOKYO, JAPAN: Mitsubishi Rayon Co Ltd (MRC), started commercial production of its new carbon fibre plant in June, 2011 at Otake in Japan. Construction for the plant was started in August, 2010. MRC invested ¥12 billion for the plant having production capacity of 2,700 metric tonne/year.

MRC has developed and manufactured new high-performance quality large-tow carbon fibre “P330 series” in the newly built plant and started supply mainly for industrial applications. MRC plans to raise operation rates and targets full operation in a short period.

The company constructed the new carbon fibre plant to meet growing demand from various industrial applications, such as wind blades, pressure vessels, and automobiles. At the same time, MRC promotes further development of value-added intermediate materials, such as prepreg for wind blades and carbon fibre based textiles for automotive structural parts, fully utilizing high-performance large-tow fibre.
