Influence of roller configuration on the fiber–matrix distribution and mechanical properties of continuously produced, mineral-impregnated carbon fibers (MCFs)

Research output: Contribution to journalResearch articleContributedpeer-review



The article at hand is envisaged to enumerate significant technological parameters for the successful impregnation of carbon fiber rovings having 50,000 (50 K) filaments, each within a fine-grained, cementitious suspension. Parameters such as the number of rollers as well as the influence of roller deflection and rotation have been investigated and discussed with regard to the quality of the related impregnation and mechanical properties resulting therefrom. Morphological analysis disclosed distinct differences in the fiber matrix distribution, which are particularly reflected in the flexural performance of the mineral-impregnated carbon fibers (MCFs) produced. Moreover, with the best fiber matrix distribution, uniaxial tensile tests on MCFs demonstrated superior tensile strengths, moduli of elasticity, and elongations at rupture.
