Carbon fiber needs nitrogen
Thanks to new technologies, carbon fiber is used, among other things, in the space industry as well as the automotive, plastics and construction industries. In the production process, nitrogen is used for inerting during carbonization of the fibers. Messer has signed a contract in Hungary in connection with the expansion of production at Zoltek, thus further cementing the partnership between the companies. Messer’s investment of 2.65 million euros will secure the long-term supply contract with the largest carbon fiber producer in Hungary.
