Ecopreg Glass/PFA 300g/m² 7781 style

Fire-retardant prepreg with low environmental impact - (Special Order)

Ecopreg PFA prepregs are a range of fire-retardant, pre-impregnated composite materials based on a PFA (Polyfurfuryl Alcohol) bioresin. PFA is a thermosetting bioresin derived from crop waste and is similar to a phenolic resin but with lower formaldehyde and VOC emissions. In addition to its environmental credentials, PFA has fire retardant properties equivalent to phenolics, plus excellent temperature and chemical resistance.

The prepregs can be supplied with a range of reinforcement fibres and fabric constructions. They can be consolidated by vacuum bagging, autoclave or press moulding and are designed for a range of applications, in mass transport, offshore, marine, furniture and construction.

This particular grade uses a 300g/m² 7781 style woven glass fabric with 40% resin content by weight and is typically used for aircraft interiors, including in sandwich panels.

Processing

Ecopreg PFA prepregs can be processed using standard techniques including vacuum bagging, autoclave and press moulding. Typical curing cycle 140°C for 30 minutes. More details available on request.
