Composites Evolution has launched two new epoxy tooling prepregs.

Evopreg EPT120 reportedly has an extended outlife and variable curing cycles, helping composite tooling manufacturers improve the flexibility and efficiency of their tooling manufacturing processes.

‘The 21-day outlife of Evopreg EPT120 prepregs makes them ideally suited to the production of larger, more complex tools, or to the batch production of multiple smaller tools, ahead of a single (e.g. weekly) scheduled cure,’ said sales and marketing director, Ben Hargreaves. ‘For applications where rapid turnaround is critical, EPT120 prepregs can be fully cured in under six hours, in a single-shot ramped cure.

Evopreg EPT110 is a 50°C, 12-hour cure tooling epoxy prepreg, designed for component cures up to 190°C. It can also help create tools with improved surface finish and high dimensional stability.
