UK composites specialist PRF Composites has developed a new, highly toughened epoxy prepreg system.
RP549 has been formulated for the production of parts requiring high mechanical properties and good impact resistance. It has a Tg of 195°C (DMA) and excellent mechanical properties in tensile, ILS and flexural strength.
‘We were particularly excited when we saw the mechanical test results for RP549 coming in; this system really does offer customers a high quality solution for structural components that demand superior mechanical and thermal properties,’ said managing director, Robert Burnell. ‘Feedback from our initial customer trials confirms that the material also has particularly good laminating characteristics, with good tack and grab.’
