Formosa Plastics has developed Tairyfil, a PAN (polyacrylonitrile) based carbon fiber for high performance applications. Tairyfil is stronger than steel, lighter than aluminum, as stiff as titanium, corrosion-resistant and will not rust. Our fibers have good compatibility with both thermoset and thermoplastic resins used in CFRP (carbon fiber-reinforced polymers) including excellent compatibility and processability with epoxy resins. It is also available in various grades for different applications including high strength, standard to high modulus (33 Msi-55Msi) and small to large tow fiber (1.5K-48K). These properties and variety of grades allow Formosa to adapt to the needs of different processes and can be easily and quickly used to make a wide range of composite products.
