Petroceramics has developed different carbon fiber based composites for high temperature applications, as shown in the figure below.

Overview of Cf composites developed by Petroceramics for different operating temperatures

We developed a polymer matrix composite that can withstand operating temperatures up to 400°C for short time exposure and up to 350°C for a long time exposure. This composite is obtained form a patented pre-preg, registered with the trademark “C-preg400®”.

Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) measurements highlight that the elastic modulus of the C-preg400® composite is stable during a thermal exposure at
350°C in standard air for a time duration of 48 hours.


The resin system can be used with different carbon fiber types, in textile or UD form, to design tailored pre-pregs.
