North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT) says that its ThinPreg 736LT prepreg system has now been approved by Lloyd’s Register.  

NTPT’s composite technology is suitable for the marine market and this latest certification confirms the company’s continued commitment to development in this sector, the company says.

The prepreg system has been formulated to offer long out life (up to 8 weeks at 18-22°C) and has improved mechanical performance. The system can be used in the production of large structures and can be cured at temperatures as low as 80°C.

ThinPreg 736LT UD prepregs can be supplied in a full range of weights from 30 gsm upwards and in plotted multiaxial formats such as a 400g +/-45° available in widths up to 4m.   

NTPT also offers a compatible set of 736LT products such as prepreg peel ply, woven fabrics and adhesive films for core bonding.
