In the 3 GeV Rapid Cycling Synchrotron (RCS) of the Japan Proton Accelerator Research complex (J-PARC), we adopted the carbon stripper foil for the multi-turn H- charge exchange injection. The charge exchange foil which use in RCS is fabricated by the arc discharge method with the boron doped carbon electrode. The foil fabricated this method is called HBC foil (Hybrid Boron mixed Carbon stripper foil). HBC foil had been developed at KEK. It has high durability for the beam irradiation damage. In past days, the foil fabrication process was conducted in KEK Tsukuba-site and the foil preparation process was conducted in JAEA Tokai-site. In 2017, the foil deposition apparatus has been relocated from KEK to JAEA, and we started both processes in Tokai-site. We carried out the offline beam irradiation test for the new HBC foil which fabricated in JAEA, and we confirmed that its performance is equivalent to the original HBC foil. Next we tested a new HBC foil with actual beam in RCS and we confirmed it could withstand 1 week beam irradiation. After that, we started user operation with the new HBC foil in 2018. So far we accomplished stable user operation for one year by using the new HBC foil only.
