ZOLTEK Companies Inc. engages in the development, manufacture, and marketing of carbon fibres for various applications. The fibres are used as the primary building material in commercial products. The commercial grade carbon fibres are sold under the ZOLTEK™ trade name and the oxidized acrylic fibre under the ZOLTEK™ OX trade name. The operations are primarily in the United States, Mexico and Europe and the products are sold worldwide.
Today ZOLTEK products are increasing the energy output of wind turbines, creating more fuel efficient vehicles, and lifting other industries to higher levels of performance.
ZOLTEK™ PX35 chopped carbon fibres are commonly compounded with general engineering thermoplastics (e.g., PC, Nylon, etc.) and high-temperature thermoplastic resins (e.g, PEEK, PEI, etc.). The resulting composite offers high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios. Our chopped fibres have a high bulk density value, which allows for cleaner and more consistent flow rates. They also distribute easily during compounding, thereby improving process and product performance.
Our chopped fibres are available in a pellet, flake, or stick form.
Typical applications: automotive, Oil & Gas, infrastructure, Thermoplastic compounding.
ZOLTEK™ PX35 milled fibres are specially processed PAN (polyacrylonitrile) based fibres for high-volume applications that require strength and/or electrostatic dissipation. ZOLTEK™ PX30 high-purity milled fibres are 99+% pure carbon fibres derived from Zoltek™'s high temperature graphitization process. ZOLTEK™'s in-house milling system ensures product quality and traceability from raw material through finished product.
Typical applications: automotive, Offshore drilling, infrastructure.
