The better mechanical and thermal behavior of a pitch-based carbon fibers tool respect to PAN-based ones, alongside with an induction heating system represents an excellent improvement in terms of performances and efficiency against conventional industrial autoclave processes.
The combination of the pitch fibers with this kind of heating solution leads to considerable savings in the total cycle times and, consequently, also in the whole process costs.

GPMC, after the initial insight, selected the best partners for the collaborative project and then provided technical support in the development of a real-life solution for the composites market.
