Abstract:

A continuous process has been developed to coat the individual filaments of graphite yarn with pyrolytic graphite. The pyrolytic coating increased the strength-to-weight ratio of the filaments by a factor of 1.3 and acted as a sizing on the yarn to make weaving easier. Tapes woven from the coated yarn showed a load distribution factor as high as 0.9.
