Due to the number of carbon fibre suppliers, and to maintain competitive purchasing, NTPT use general classifications of fibre types according to their properties. Our naming conventions can be seen here.
NTPT Carbon Fibre Naming Convention

Note that NTPT measures Tg using DMA T Onset point which typically gives a result 15 to 25˚C lower than Tg by Peak Tan Delta. Tg by T onset is the safest number to use, please be aware of this when comparing NTPT data with that from other suppliers.
