Total Composite Solutions (TCS) has introduced an epoxy prepreg for the aerospace interiors sector. The material range, developed and manufactured by Microtex Composites Srl, TCS’s prepreg partner, can reportedly be used in place of traditional phenolic systems whilst exceeding the requirements of industry standard FAR 25.853.

‘The prepreg solution we are delivering to the market will enable the removal of phenolic chemistry from the sector, a strategy clearly defined by the major market OEM,’ said Andy Pointon, MD of TCS. Additional benefits include improved finished part quality and reductions in potential rework, the company said. The material can be oven cured making it possible to manufacture large structures without autoclave curing. All test properties achieved to date have been produced from oven cured laminates.
