Carbon Prepreg

Prepregs are produced by impregnating carbon fibers or based fabrics with thermoset binder .

They are stable fiber epoxy structures with optimal physical mechanical properties for aerospace applicaitions.

Fiber Aera Weight 100 – 600 gsm
Resin content more than 25 %
Fiber type Carbon fiber, fiberglass and aramid fiber
Glass transition temperature 90 to 200 degrees C
Reinforcement Biaxial woven fabrics and multiaxial fabrics

Shelf life Maximum 3 months at room temperature
One year at minus 18 degrees C

Cyanate Ester Prepreg

Cyanate ester prepreg is the preferred product for low dielectric aerospace applications . It is processed using a straightforward 177 C cure , with free standing post cure. The main features are low out gas chemistry, and low dielectric loss, combined with versatile processing options and a constant moisture resistance.

Colored Carbon Fiber Fabric

In the field of coloured carbon fabric there is a vast choice of hybrid carbon fiber style with 7 colours and 4 patterns at minima . In Jacquard Carbon fiber style a choice of 6 colours and 6 patterns Typical specs of Coloured Carbon fiber :

  • Material : 3K Carbon Fiber + Kevlar
  • 200 : Normal weight per square meter
  • 1000 : Standard width
  • Woven : Twill
  • Weft fiber count/10 mm : 5 (3k Carbon fiber )
  • Warp fiber count/10 mm : 6 (1500 D Kevlar)
  • Thickness in mm : 0.25 mm

Performance Prepreg

High performance prepregs offer exceptional benefits for a wide range of applications from rapid component manufacture to high-end cosmetic finishes.

Woven carbon and glass reinforcements can be used to lay up various panel combinations to suit the required stiffness and weight targets needed.

For high volume press moulding production of structural automotive components, with a cycle times of 5 minutes combined with preforming capability at room temperature and reduced finishing efforts result This will increased production output as well as time and cost savings per part.

We will provide data sheet of the main choice of 6 high performance prepreg ranging from a 5 mins at 150 C up to 30 mins at 130 C fast cure.
