Rayon carbon felt product is manufactured from viscose precursor (which is a semi-synthetic fiber made from natural sources of regenerated natural cellulose) and it is pre-fired at 3452 ºF (1900 ºC) in order to complete the carbonization of the starting precursor material.  This is a soft felt material with good flexibility and compressibility.  It is easy to cut to different sizes using different cutting tools such a die cutter, a pair of scissor, or a heavy duty office paper trimmer.  Rayon based carbon felt materials are usually used for redox flow batteries and microbial fuel cells as the electrode or current collector, insulating layer for furnaces, or as heat shields and heat sinks and various other relevant applications. Rayon felt products have higher carbon content and lower ash in comparison to PAN felt counterparts.  Following redox flow battery image is courtesy of Alejandro Clemente et al. and furnace thermal insulation is courtesy of Vac Aero International to show exemplary applications that can use felt products.

This product has a thickness tolerance of 12.7 mm +/- 2 mm and interested parties should procure a small sample first for their intended application prior to placing an order for bulk volume.
