Join Steven Marjieh for an in-depth discussion in this video Room temp curing: Wet layup, part of Introduction to Composite Manufacturing.
- [Narrator] Prepreg is a fabric or tape…that is impregnated with resin…during the manufacturing process.…The resin system is already mixed.…The material is typically placed on a roll…and the backing material is placed on one side so…the material of the prepreg does not stick to each other.…Consolidation is necessary if parts are made…from several layers of prepreg.…Because large quantities of air can be trapped…in between each prepreg layer.…
You must remove this air by covering the prepreg…with perforated release film and a breather ply.…And apply a vacuum bag.…Apply the vacuum for 10 to 15 minutes at room temperature.…Typically attach the first consolidated ply to the tool face…and repeat this process after every three or five layers…depending on the prepreg thickness and your component shape.…
