With a capacity of over 1 million linear metres at 1.5 m wide, the new line will be suitable for large quantities as well as small runs of speciality materials. 

The new service will include both solvent dip and hot melt processes with a range of materials, including woven fabrics, UD prepregs, resin films and adhesive films. 

“In prepreg manufacturing over the last 25 years the focus has been development in resin systems, but very little advances have been made in the development of the reinforcements," says PRF Composites' Managing Director, Robert Burnell.

"We believe that there is far more to be done by using the latest fabric technology in the manufacture of prepreg. This is central to our aims – the best prepreg can only be made from the best raw materials.”
