Composites Evolution has announced the launch of two new epoxy tooling prepregs.

The first of these, Evopreg EPT120, has been designed to help composite tooling manufacturers improve the flexibility and efficiency of their tooling manufacturing processes, by providing a combination of extended outlife and variable curing cycles.

The second new product, Evopreg EPT110, is a 50°C, 12 hour cure tooling epoxy prepreg, designed for component cures up to 190°C.

“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,” stated company sales & marketing director, Ben Hargreaves. “But that’s not all. 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 our new low temperature cure, high temperature performance epoxy tooling prepreg, allowing moulders to create tools with exceptional surface finish and high dimensional stability.”
