Carbon

BGF is the premier producer of high performance carbon fabric. Due to its critical function on an aircraft, our carbon fabrics are engineered with the utmost scrutiny and attention to detail, ensuring that the resulting panel sustain maximum structural integrity without adding significant weight. Carbon fabrics also provide vital thermal benefits and can withstand temperatures of 1500ºC without substantial loss to the fiber properties.

We offer a variety of PAN and Pitched based carbon fabrics utilizing 3K, 4K, 6K, and 12K carbon fibers. The Cheraw, South Carolina facility is dedicated solely to the manufacture of high performance fabrics for the composites industry.
