In the 3-GeV Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (RCS) at Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), we adopted thick Hybrid type Boron-doped Carbon (HBC) stripper foil for multi-turn H- charge-exchange injection. The HBC stripper foil developed at KEK has demonstrably improved the foil lifetime significantly. In addition, Graphite Thin Films (GTF) developed by KANEKA corp. was attempted to use for user operation. The GTF is a multilayer graphene sheet and it is expected to be a new candidate for highly durable charge stripping foil. HBC and GTF foils can be both employed the J-PARC RCS for long-term user operation. Early manufacturing of the stripper foil for the J-PARC was carried out according to the following two steps: foil fabrication at the KEK Tsukuba site and foil preparation at the JAEA Tokai site. Recently, the HBC foil deposition apparatus was relocated from KEK to JAEA, and new HBC foils were fabricated at the Tokai site. The performance of the new HBC foil was verified to be equivalent to the original HBC foil with offline beam irradiation tests. Furthermore, the use of the new HBC foils was successfully demonstrated during RCS user beam operation for one week.
