The material has a Tg of 120C/250F and good adhesive properties (for example when bonding to honeycombs or aluminium), intended to make HexPly M77 suitable for large volume production.

Based on HexPly M77 resin system, Hexcel has launched a range of prepregs with glass or carbon reinforcements in multiaxial form as well as woven fabrics and UD tapes.
