PREVIOUS 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.

Resin films for high fibre volume laminates and cored composite sandwich structures with high mechanical properties infused with minimal voids. Semi solid epoxy resin films with release paper are generally used in the aerospace industry for vacuum bag mould low void high performance light weight laminate designs.
Low Temp Cure Prepregs
Low-temperature cure prepregs offer moulders a choice of epoxy resin systems which can still be reinforced with carbon, aramid, polyethene and glass fibres, but can be cost effectively processed at low pressures out of autoclave (OoA) using lower cost tooling and less energy.
Both tooling prepeg options are designed to provide a very high quality surface finish and long tool life.
Fire Retardant Prepreg
EP-530 can be supplied with a wide choice of carbon, glass or aramid fibre /fabric reinforcement. It is a self-extinguishing which meets the UL 94 V-0 classification. The curing cycle, flow and tack of EP-530 can also be varied to suit processing needs.
Toughened High Impact Prepregs
The two toughened epoxy preperg system offered have outstanding fracture properties and resistance to microcracking. The curing cycle, flow and tack of both grades can be varied to suit processing needs.
Ballistic Level Prepreg
EP-620 ballistic prepreg is a toughened epoxy resin matrix system with enhanced fracture properties and the best impact resistance. It is fully compatible for use with carbon fibre and aramid fibre technical fabrics.
Global Delivery Service
From its production facility in Melbourne, Australia, GMS Composites provides a reliable and professional global supply and delivery service to customers for all its manufactured to order high performance prepreg products.
All prepregs rolls are taped and individually packed in a sealed moisture proof bag and protective outer box.
Delivery of customer orders can be direct to the fabrication production facility or via a GMS Composites appointed regional agent or distributor.
