PRF Composite Materials is introducing the RP800 epoxy tooling prepreg system, which has a 12 hour cure at 50°C and an out-life in excess of 5 days at 20°C.
“We are delighted to be adding RP800 to our range of tooling systems, which have received outstanding customer feedback – particularly in terms of the quality of the surface finish in the tool, even after repeated mouldings," says Managing Director, Robert Burnell. "This new product provides an additional option for customers requiring improved dimensional accuracy of the finished tool.”
The system is in manufacture from September and will be available on a range of PRF’s high quality tooling fabrics.
