PRF Composite Materials is excited to announce the installation of the company’s new UD prepreg line.

Following the opening of its third facility, PRF has continued its expansion by increasing onsite UD prepreg manufacturing. The new, state-of-the-art line has been installed at PRF’s head office and prepreg manufacturing facility, and is supported by R&D chemists, with in house resin system development – making these new materials fully compatible with PRF’s range of woven prepregs – and extensive lab facilities equipped for mechanical testing, rheology, DMA and DSC. Product development remains a key focus for PRF, along with high quality and innovation.

PRF’s new UD prepreg capability includes carbon materials from 80 to 600gsm, at standard widths of 300 mm and 600 mm. Other widths are possible, if required. Managing Director, Robert Burnell comments, “Our woven prepreg materials continue to receive exceptional customer feedback and being able to provide a comprehensive range of high quality UD materials allows PRF to complete our prepreg offering. Doing things differently, PRF will continue to push boundaries and focus on innovative product development that enables our customers to get better results, faster and in a more cost effective manner.”
