PRF Composite Materials Launches New Tooling Prepreg Systems

PRF Composite Materials has launched RP-801 and RP-802 tooling prepreg systems.

PRF explains that, whilst RP-801 offers a high quality, industry-standard tooling solution, with a cure cycle of 8hrs at 60°C and a tack life of 5 days at 20°C, RP-802 Overnight Cure offers double the tack life – 10 days at 20°C – with a 16hrs cure at 60°C or 8hrs at 70°C. Both systems have a Tg of 190°C after post cure.

Managing Director, Robert Burnell, comments, “From listening to our customers, we understood that our new tooling system had to match industry standards, but our market research also suggested the need for increased flexibility from a tooling system with extended tack life and out-life. In keeping with our philosophy of ‘doing things differently’, we developed both RP-801 and RP-802 to give our customers choice and to enable them to work with the system that best suits their requirements; ultimately helping them produce more efficiently.”

These systems are in manufacture from September 2015 onwards and will be available on PRF’s standard high quality carbon (200g/m² Twill 2/2 and 645g/m² Twill 2/2) and glass (300g/m² 8H Satin and 800g/m² Twill 2/2) fabrics.
