New boron/carbon fiber prepreg

Toray Advanced Composites and fiber supplier Specialty Materials have partnered to incorporate the latter’s boron fiber with Toray’s carbon fiber and resin systems.

The resulting hybrid prepreg can be used to make composite structures such as spars, longerons, rotors, and control surfaces for aerospace applications, Toray said.

“Our relationship with Toray Advanced Composites has enabled this unique prepreg portfolio which provides engineering teams new options for optimizing performance of composite structures,” said Monica Rommel, CEO of Specialty Materials.
