US Patent Number
A process for preparing an activated carbon fiber composite material includes the steps of mixing carbon fibers, binder and water to form a slurry, molding the slurry to produce a green monolithic body, curing the monolithic body, carbonizing the cured monolith to produce a carbon fiber composite with an open, permeable structure and activating the composite. If pre-activated carbon fibers are utilized in the mixing step the carbonizing and activating steps are eliminated.
