Vertical Integration

Mitsubishi Chemical is dedicated to providing a consistent product throughout the entire life cycle of our products. That is why we are the most vertically integrated company in the industry; this is our product’s story.

01

Monomers


Basic raw materials consisting of simple molecular structures (monomers) are combined to produce Acrylonitrile (AN). AN is then polymerized to form polyacrylonitrile (PAN). Mitsubishi Chemical uses the highest grade materials available to create AN and PAN.

02

Precursor


A solution of PAN is then spun into precursor. The process of creating precursor heavily influences the quality and consistency of the carbon fiber. It is a process in which Mitsubishi Chemical has refined and perfected over the past 80-years.

03

Carbon Fiber


Precursor is oxidized and carbonized in ovens to produce carbon fiber. Mitsubishi Chemical produces carbon fiber for a variety of different applications and is one of the largest manufacturers of carbon fiber in the world.

04

Resins


Mitsubishi Chemical has developed many different resin systems that posses a variety of mechanical properties (e.g. high-heat resistance, strength, toughness).

05

Prepeg


Carbon fibers are impregnated with resin to produce ready-to-mold material in sheet form. Mitsubishi Chemical produces a variety of different types of prepreg for many different applications (e.g. aerospace, sporting goods, etc.).
