PRF Composite Materials have added the latest epoxy prepreg system, RP542-4 for woven carbon fabrics

September 04, 2019

PRF Composite Materials have come up with RP542-4 that can be stated as a compliment to their existing systems RP542-1 and super-toughened RP549 systems. The latest epoxy prepeg system will be producing excellent results on unidirectional and woven carbon fabrics.

Head of Technology, Heather Hughes, comments:

The mechanical testing carried out shows the system to have excellent Tensile, Compressive, Flexural and Interlaminar properties and a relatively high Tg of 138°C after curing at 120°C. The onset Tg can be improved by 20°C to 120°C after post curing at 140°C for 2 hours. Adding to its usability, the system also has an out life of 60 days at 20°C.”

The system is available on 300gsm and 600gsm unidirectional carbon and the wide range of high quality woven fabrics in a variety of fibre types.
