Since China began its economic reforms, China has become one of the best factories in the world and a well-deserved manufacturing center. However, China is faced with an awkward situation where the manufacturing industry is large but not strong.
Even though China's manufacturing industry has developed rapidly after decades of development, China still lags behind Western countries in some key areas, including the production of new materials.
The new materials manufacturing industry is relatively broad, and the manufacturing and processing technologies for many materials are inconvenient for China, so China needs to catch up in this area. In the spirit of catching up, China has made a breakthrough in the field of carbon fiber materials, achieved mass production, and began to gradually catch up with the developed countries of the West in the field of new materials.
Although the principle of this carbon fiber material is simple, it has baffled many countries. Therefore, China's breakthrough in carbon fiber can be said to be very rare, so how did China achieve a breakthrough in carbon fiber? ?
1. The king of materials in modern industry
A significant part of today's civil aviation aircraft are made of carbon fiber materials, so carbon fiber materials are prominent in this aspect, so many countries have begun to study carbon fiber materials and use carbon fiber materials as a breakthrough in this areas. new materials in the future.
In addition to their talents in the field of aircraft engineering, carbon fiber materials also play a significant role in the semiconductor and aerospace industries. For a long time, China did not have the ability to independently produce and manufacture carbon fiber. materials, and most of it could only rely on imports, so China was looking for a breakthrough in the independent production of carbon fiber materials.
The reason why carbon fiber can be called the king of materials is due to its superior properties. Carbon fiber is less dense than metallic materials, but its hardness is higher than many metallic materials, as well as the chemical properties of the material. stable. , high strength, with these properties, carbon fiber has become the king of materials today.
Carbon fiber was originally used in the military field, especially in the warheads of some missiles, strategic materials.
Because of the advantages of carbon fiber materials, China began to gather many scientific researchers to study carbon fiber materials and achieved some breakthroughs. However, limited by China's manufacturing capacity at that time, it was impossible to achieve great results. large-scale production of carbon fiber materials. The only way out is to import carbon fiber materials, which has led China to face bottlenecks in the main areas of production and material production.
Secondly, we embarked on the path of independent production
Carbon fiber material, which seems to be very easy to produce, has put many countries at a dead end in actual production, which is mainly caused by the backwardness of the production equipment. Since the production of carbon fiber materials requires two production steps of pre-oxidation and carbonization, this makes carbon fiber simple in principle, but the actual production threshold is very high.
Therefore, having invested a lot of manpower and material resources, China still has a big gap with many Western countries in terms of production technology, causing China to face many difficulties in the development of carbon fiber materials.
However, in the face of many obstacles, China still found a breakthrough in the independent production of carbon fiber materials. In fact, products, the gap between China and many developed countries is mainly caused by materials.
It is because of the excellent materials that the fishing rods of these developed countries are sold at high prices in China. Therefore, in order to fill this gap, many Chinese companies have started researching carbon fiber materials in fishing for the first time. rods, and started its own production of carbon fiber materials.
In the process of self-producing carbon fiber materials, the biggest obstacle is still not some advanced technical principles, but production equipment, because there is always a big gap in the production equipment, so China is facing production bottlenecks. carbon fiber materials, so at the beginning of the new century, many research institutes and enterprises in China began to concentrate on the research and development of pre-oxidation and carbonization equipment. Finally, China finally made a rare progress in manufacturing equipment and began to move towards independent production.
With more and more mature production equipment, many Chinese companies began to try to produce carbon fiber materials, which have achieved many proud achievements, so China has made many historical breakthroughs in carbon fiber materials.
Building on previous experience, Shanghai Petrochemical finally led the construction of China's first large-scale carbon fiber production line in August this year. We can say that the historical breakthrough is of great importance.
China has made many detours in the production of carbon fiber materials, which has enabled China to accumulate a lot of experience in the production, research and development of new materials. Therefore, after China's first large-scale carbon fiber production line, it began to gradually dispose of from the country's western dependence on imports of materials and its gradual transformation into a manufacturing center completed a historic counterattack that, as can be seen, is of great importance.
