Hexcel's automotive promotions focus on the company's mastery of prepreg
technology, where fiber reinforcements are supplied pre-impregnated with precise amounts of epoxy resin.
The latest report on the global Glass Prepreg
market suggests a positive growth rate in the coming years.
Teijin will benefit from Renegade's well-established proprietary technologies and solution capabilities in heat-resistant thermoset prepregs
to expand its business in aerospace field including next-generation aircrafts' engine parts.
of Midland, Mich., presented new work combining carbon/epoxy prepreg
trim scrap (uncured, chopped to 1 in./25mm) from kit cutting and preforming with virgin prepreg
in a compression press.
Another important parameter is the opening time required in the different configurations adopted for the solar sail, mainly due to the insulating properties of the prepreg
. In the experiments performed in the atmospheric condition of the laboratory the opening times have been fully influenced by the number of foldings.
After preparation of the mould, the workers have to cut all layers of the prepreg
The panel consisted of 8 layers of 8552 prepreg
having 490 mm X 490 mm in size with a quasi-isotropic configuration [[+ or -]457(0790[degrees])].

windows need to be sized and tooled, as do the flexible coverlayers and bond plies.
Manual operations can for example be found in material handling, when picking prepreg
plies from a cutter table and stacking them to form a plane laminate in preparation for a subsequent forming operation.
