In this webinar we will review materials that are produced by carbonizing various oxidized polyacrylonitrile product forms.  Specifically, we will begin by describing the manufacturing methods used to produce carbonized yarns, felts and fabrics. Then we will review the physical and chemical properties of these carbonized products and also discuss applications where these materials are used. Finally, we will describe some new opportunities where the unique properties of carbonized products may be best applied.

Primary Topics:
• Manufacturing methods for carbonized yarns, felt and fabrics.
• Unique characteristics and technical properties of carbonized products.
• End uses and applications of carbonized materials.
• New opportunities for carbonized materials
