PRF Composite Materials Launches New Tooling Prepreg Systems

PRF Tooling System

PRF Composite Materials has launched its new RP-801 and RP-802 tooling prepreg systems. Developed in-house, PRF says these high quality systems offer flexibility for customers looking for a more suitable tooling solution.

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.
