PrePreg Range GMS Composites Standard High Performance Prepreg Range A choice of ten standard prepreg resins systems have been developed for fabricating both high performance composite tooling and finished composite parts using vacuum production processing. Both ‘in’ and ‘out of autoclave’ (OoA) prepreg resins are available, with a range of cure temperatures from 55 0C to 250 0C. All standard high performance prepreg resin systems and resin films can be combined with a wide range of woven and multi-axial technical fabrics and reinforcement fibres based on: glass fibre, carbon fibre and aramid fibre, as well as other specialty fibres and hybrid fabrics to suit application performance needs. Max Tg performance of standard resins available ranges from 70 0C up to 3100C. All standard prepregs and resin films are made to order to ensure maximum shelf life and are supplied globally.
