Kemrock Opens India's first Carbon Fibre facility

June 15, 2010 9:31 am

Kemrock Industries and Exports Ltd., a manufacturer of Reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, commissioned India’s first carbon fibre manufacturing facility in Vadodara, Gujarat. Built with an initial investment of Rs. 200 crores through a mix of equity, debt and internal accruals; the company plans to invest Rs 1,500 to Rs 2,000 crore ($300 to 400 million) in next five years. The new facility was inaugurated by former President of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam in the presence of eminent scientists and dignitaries.
 
This fully integrated plant, which includes polymerization, wet spinning and carbonization has been set up with technology know-how from CSIR-National Aerospace Laboratory, Bengaluru, with an initial capacity of 400 tonnes per annum. In the second phase, which is expected to be completed in four to five months, the Company aims to add another 400 tpA, taking the capacity of the plant to 800 tpA. The new plant is expected to start commercial production soon.
 
Carbon fibre reinforced composites have high strength and stiffness and are also very light weight. This integration will ensure the right quality of precursor (special acrylic fiber) for aerospace grade carbon fiber, thereby serving the nation’s requirements in those defence & aerospace sectors lead by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd.(HAL), Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) and Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC).
