Epoxy Prepreg is a Prime Solution for Composites Tooling

AS9120 Certified composites market images

Composites tooling solutions enable manufacturers to produce finished molds with quality surface, dimensional stability, durability to meet demanding manufacturing requirements, and the ability to perform in various field applications.

Prepreg is a reliable tooling material for use in composites production because prepreg helps control variables such as resin content and thickness of the laminate for an even distribution of resin throughout the prepreg. The toughness and versatility of epoxy prepreg make it ideal for composites tooling in manufacturing processes for Aerospace applications and other demanding industries. Carbon fiber epoxy prepreg tooling material also delivers considerable time and cost savings.

Composites One supplies tooling prepregs that are low-temperature curing epoxy resin systems, suitable for manufacturing tools in simple and complex shapes and sizes. Epoxy tools are a reliable and cost-effective solution for composites manufacturing that offer many benefits across a range of industries, including Industrial, Marine, Automotive, and Transportation.
