Research and Development

The production of carbon fibre and carbon fibre reinforced plastics from the basic feedstock materials is a complex process. CSIRO’s focus is the development of novel carbon fibre feedstock material (SIROPAN) to carefully control the chemistry of the raw material to produce high quality bespoke carbon fibre.

Our Research and Development activities include:

  • Polymer development
  • Wet spinning
  • Precursor fibre development
  • Carbonisation
  • Evaluation and testing
