Evopreg PFC prepregs (formerly Ecopreg PFA) 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 an 860g/m² 8 harness satin woven glass fabric with 38% resin content by weight and is typically used for rail, offshore and industrial applications, including in sandwich panels.
