Researchers have found that combining lignin with nylon yields a composite with increased room temperature stiffness and decreased melt viscosity.
The joint venture, named HexCut Services, will provide pan-European kitting services that will include Hexcel’s carbon fiber prepreg and other composite materials.

4M Carbon Fiber Corp. says its objective is to demonstrate that standard modulus carbon fiber can be made from textile grade PAN precursor using significantly less energy and in less than half the processing time, thus cutting carbon fiber manufacturing cost by about 50%. Plasma oxidation is the key.
