PRF to champion prepregs at JEC World 2024

PRF Composite Materials (hall 5, stand E57) will be bringing its innovative prepreg materials and new adhesives and primer films to JEC World this year.

After an exciting two years of introducing class-leading prepreg products to the market, the PRF team is thrilled to be showcasing a new suite of resin films, including the new RFA570 eXpress cure. RFA570 is a fast-curing epoxy film adhesive, designed to provide structural bonds in honeycomb and composite bonding applications, with a 4 minute cure at 140°C.

The team is also celebrating Q.tool prepreg tooling technology, which has recently been awarded a UK patent. The UK Intellectual Property Office has issued the patent grant for the prepreg’s unique design, confirming PRF’s assertion that Q.tool is an original, distinct and innovative technology in tooling prepreg. Offering a faster option to the traditional 1:8:1 tooling, Q.tool’s unique prepreg fabric architecture produces a very highly drapeable material, excellent surface finish and, typically, provides a saving of 50% of the layup time of a conventional 1:8:1 system and debulks reduced to as few as one.

The team will also have aerospace components on display constructed using the company’s RP570 FR eXpress cure epoxy prepreg system. Formulated for structural components requiring FST properties, RP570 FR is a fire-retardant ultra-fast prepreg system which is cured and demouldable after 5 minutes at 160°C. The system has excellent surface finish – which can be seen from the parts on display.

PRF says it is looking forward to an exciting year with developments in operations and capabilities forthcoming in 2024. The team also looks forward to discussing these developments with visitors at the show.
