A carbon-fiber manufacturer has launched a new website at www.zoltek.com. The redesigned is to highlight many applications for carbon fiber, Zoltek Corp. products, and its service appropriate to each. For instance, the Applications section of the website includes details on Zoltek’s carbon fiber products for the industries such as wind energy, automotive, offshore drilling, CNG and pressure vessels, energy storage, friction resistance, and sporting goods.
The new site structure will let users identify which carbon-fiber product is best suited for each application and industry.
Additionally, the Products section of the website includes details on Zoltek’s three primary carbon fiber product lines: Panex 35 (reinforcement), Panex 30 (high-purity), and Pyron (fire/heat resistivity).
Thirty years ago, carbon fiber was a space-age material, too costly to be used in anything except aerospace. Today, however, carbon fiber is used in wind-turbine blades, automobiles, infrastructure, and many other applications. Thanks to carbon fiber manufacturers such as Zoltek who are committed to the commercialization concept of expanding capacity, lowering costs, and growing new markets, carbon fiber has become a viable commercial product.
