IACMI Task 6.18: Preparation of Mesophase Pitch Feedstock for Carbon Fiber

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

This project will enable the team to learn how to filter feedstocks, isotropic and mesophase pitches to remove impurities that impact the successful melt spinning or melt blowing of pitches. The developed techniques should be applicable to processing many different feedstocks and produced pitches including coal and petroleum based oils and pitches. This knowledge can be used to produce acceptable feedstocks for the production of low cost carbon fiber.
