New Norplex-Micarta Non-Adhesive Pre-Preg Materials

11 February 2007

Norplex-Micarta has launched a low-cost line of non-adhesive pre-pregs, dry to the touch and not requiring the release film conventionally found on tacky pre-pregs.

Without the need to remove conventional release films, Norplex-Micarta say that this prepreg can be stored, handled, and processed more easily and efficiently, thereby reducing set-up labour costs by as much as 75%. However, the materials still provide the flow and bonding performance of traditional prepreg materials.

Available substrates include glass, cotton, paper, carbon fibre, and customer-specific substrates; resin systems include phenolic, epoxy, melamine, and specialty resins.
