Evopreg® PFC502 prepregs are a range of fire-retardant, pre-impregnated composite materials based on Polyfurfuryl Alcohol (PFA) bioresin. PFA is a thermosetting bioresin derived from crop waste and is similar to phenolic resin but with lower toxicity and VOC emissions. In addition to its environmental credentials, PFA has outstanding fire retardant properties, plus excellent temperature and chemical resistance.
Evopreg® PFC502 prepregs can be supplied with a range of reinforcement fibres and fabric constructions, including glass, carbon and ampliTex™ flax (for a 100% biocomposite).
They can be consolidated by vacuum bag/oven, autoclave or press moulding and are designed for applications including aircraft interiors, rail interiors, marine, offshore and construction.
