Airtech Advanced Materials is introducing three new LTC3 Carbon Prepregs which offer a low temperature cure and high temperature use after post cure. LTC prepregs allow the use of lower cost master model materials.

LTC3-G1400 is a lightweight tooling prepreg with a low temperature for the manufacture of composite tooling laminates capable of high temperature use.

LTC3-G1600 is a heavyweight tooling prepreg with a low temperature cure for the manufacture of composite tooling laminates capable of high temperature use.

LTC3-G1800 is a heavier weight tooling prepreg used to produce moulds with a low temperature cure. The heavy weight material is used to build laminate bulk faster thus reducing the number of plies required. It is reported to offer savings of up to 30% labour time on standard laminates, plus cost savings.

Benefits of the new prepregs are said to include:

  • lower CTE effect, greater tooling accuracy, less tool/part reworking;
  • lower cost, low temperature master model materials;
  • lower cost tooling laminates with heavier bulk ply G1800.
