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.

Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
As part of its mission to address composites end-use industries, JEC Group is investing in composites showcases at key automotive events worldwide.
