Carbon Fiber ISO 9001 Quality Assurance System

The quality standards used in the production of TORAYCA® carbon fibers are the inherited experience of Toray's synthetic fiber manufacturing processes for more than 65 years. This experience, combined with stringent, integrated quality assurance systems established for manufacturing, inspection, storage and delivery procedures, results in the very high quality of TORAYCA carbon fibers.


 The Toray Composite Materials America, Inc. facility is certified by Det Norske Vertas Certification, Inc. as conforming to the quality standard ISO 9001:2000 for the manufacture of carbon fiber. A copy of the certificate may be found by clicking here.A certificate of analysis (COA) is provided upon request to purchasers of TORAYCA carbon fibers.


 The COA certifies the fiber properties and provides the lot average test values for tensile strength, tensile modulus, ultimate strain at failure, density, yield and sizing amount. These values are tested in accordance with Toray Test Methods.


 TORAYCA carbon fibers are identified by labels attached to the case and to each individual bobbin. Manufacturing records of a particular carbon fiber product are traceable through production lot and case numbers. Labeling, product code and lot number information are provided here.
