Prepregs

This process is designed to produce semi-finished fabrics, or unidirectional fiber tapes, impregnated with an uncured resin. Because the pregregs present a certain level of tack, they are rolled with a protective layer.

Prepregs can be manufactured in the following ways:

1.    Solvent Process
2.    Hot-Melt Process
3.    B-Staging Process

Prepregs are typically cured in an autoclave or using an out-of-autoclave process (compression molding).
