PRF Composite Materials extends its range of prepreg materials with three new systems

Further extending its innovative range of prepreg materials, PRF Composite Materials introduces three new epoxy prepreg systems.

Curing at temperatures between 65-120°C, RP442 is a new low temperature system which boasts a longer out life for this type of product: up to 30 days at 20°C. Initial customer trials have been very successful, with the system providing good results in surface finish.

Innovating to fulfil customer requirements, PRF has also developed a winter version of its popular mid-temperature component prepreg. RP542-3 retains similar properties to RP542-1 but has increased tack levels, making it ideal for use in colder workshops.

Finally, PRF is also releasing its latest tooling system: RP803. Providing a mid-range solution between RP801 Standard cure and RP802 Overnight cure, this new system has a cure cycle of 12 hours at 60°C or 6 hours at 70°C with a tack life of 7 days at 20°C.

These systems will be available on a wide selection of PRF’s high quality reinforcement fabrics.
