Abstract
A bundle of carbon fibers (CFs) with 24,000 filaments was prepared using atmospheric pressure plasma and heat simultaneously for only 30 min, followed by the carbonization process. Conventional thermal stabilization process takes more than few hours to prevent the ignition of the polyacrylonitrile (PAN) fiber when large-tow PAN fibers are stabilized. The CFs produced using the plasma stabilization process had a tensile strength as high as 2.6 GPa. This strength level, which is slightly higher than that of CFs stabilized by the conventional process for 120 min, satisfies the demands in automobile applications. It is believed that the plasma-based stabilization process provides a potential solution not only for shortening the process time but also for providing continuous stabilization of large-tow carbon fibers.
