Top story: Out-of-autoclave prepreps. One of the most forward-looking applications for these materials so far has been the fabrication by Scaled Composites of the Spaceship 2/White Knight 2 spacecraft combination, with which Virgin Galactic plans to initiate an era of space tourism.

  1. De-autoclaving prepreg processing:
    Out-of-autoclave prepreg processes which can speed up fabrication and reduce costs whilst also equalling autoclave quality are a focus of development;
  2. Momentive unveils fast curing epoxy for automotive composites production:
    Anew epoxy system to speed up production of carbon fibre composites for structural automotive components by resin transfer moulding (RTM);
  3. Can epoxy composites be made 100% recyclable?
    An epoxy hardener series which is claimed to enable both fibre and resin to be recovered from end-of-life epoxy composites.
