Ecopreg PFA prepregs are a range of sustainable, pre-impregnated composite materials based on PFA (Polyfurfuryl Alcohol) bioresin.
PFA is a thermosetting bioresin derived from crop waste such as sugar cane bagasse and is similar in nature to a phenolic resin – it has been used for many years in sand casting but has only been developed for composite applications in recent years.
PFA has fire retardant properties equivalent to phenolics, but without the VOC emissions associated with phenolic systems.
The prepregs also offer a combination of light weight, high mechanical properties and low environmental impact, and they can be consolidated by vacuum bagging, autoclave or press moulding.
Our products are designed to provide significant benefits compared to conventional composite materials:
