HexPly® Prepregs for Industries
Hexcel provides a range of prepregs under the HexPly® trademark for industrial applications, using specially formulated epoxy, phenolic and BMI resin matrix systems. HexPly® prepregs are reinforced with woven, multiaxial and unidirectional (UD) carbon and glass fibers.
HexPly® prepregs are used in a wide range of industrial markets and tailored to meet the specific performance requirements – whether they are low temperature cure and good fatigue performance (HexPly® M10R); Fire, Smoke and Toxicity performance (HexPly® M34); a great visual finish (HexPly® M49) combined with high temperature resistance (HexPly® M47) – see chart below for an overview of the range.
The HexPly® Industrial product range continues to evolve, with surface films, systems with very short cure cycles and higher temperature performance resins being introduced. All industrial markets can benefit from Hexcel’s high performance lightweight composite materials - from traditional markets such as sports equipment to new applications such as industrial machinery and alternative energy.
