Shipping Information

Prepregs are not classified as 'dangerous goods' for transport purposes but they do need to be kept frozen when not in use for more than a few days. Because of their perishable nature, prepregs are generally shipped internationally on priority services.

International Shipping

Because we send the majority of 'dangerous goods' by road, it is sometimes not possible to combine prepreg and dangerous goods on the same order for delivery to some countries. If you want to order dangerous goods items (such as resins) and prepregs then the shipping calculator may notify you that you need to place two separate orders.

Customs Clearance of Prepregs

We remind export customers that it is their responsibility clear goods through their local customs. Any delay caused during customs clearance is outside of our control and as such, Easy Composites Ltd cannot refund or replace materials which are found to be damaged or unusable on arrival as a result of delays during customs clearance.

Whilst such delays are very rare, we strongly advise all customers intending to import prepreg materials to contact their local customs agency to seek full clarification of the import procedure and whether delays are likely before placing an order. By placing an order for prepreg materials, you accept these conditions of sale.

XPREG® XA120 is a structural epoxy adhesive film used to provide a high strength bond between composite laminate and core materials such as aluminium honeycomb, Nomex® or foam core (such as Rohacell®). This film adhesive can also be used to provide additional resin around bonding fasteners and inserts or underneath peel-ply when using peel-ply to provide a secondary bonding surface.

XA120's advanced, toughened epoxy formulation results in outstanding bond and peel-strength at the very forefront of adhesive film performance.

This prepreg resin film is suitable for autoclave, oven or heated platen press cure. XA120 cannot be cured at room temperature.

Advantages

  • Industry leading bond and peel-strength
  • Service temperature up to 120°C (subject to post-cure)
  • Easy handling (4 week out-life)
  • Minimal shrinkage, very low CTE
  • Fully compatible with XPREG® XC110 and XC130 prepregs

Further Information

Cure Cycle

The recommended cure cycle for XA120 is 8hrs at 90°C (ramp rate 2°C/min) which will result in a Tg of 100°C. Where the maximum Tg is required, a post cure of 120°C for 1hr should be followed (ramp rate 0.3°C/min).

See datasheet for full details including alternative cure cycles from 80°C.

Compatibility with XPREG® Prepregs

XA120 is fully compatible with XPREG° XC110 (out-of-autoclave) and XC130 (autoclave) cure prepregs and can be co-cured with these prepreg systems or used in a '2-shot' process to provide secondary bonding onto laminates made using these systems (peel-ply finish or surface preparation would be required).

Unfortunately we do not stock any pre-pregs with a flexible resin. The only flexible resin we supply is our EF80 Flexible Epoxy Resin which is suitable for wet lay and vacuum bagged processes.

No, XA120 Prepreg Adhesive film is designed to be used as an adhesive, particularly for bonding core materials to laminates as part of single or multi stage cure processes. It is not designed to be used as a 'resin film' or 'surface film' and in testing did not prove suitable for this application.

Yes, the blue poly film must be removed. If you're finding it difficult to remove the blue poly backing then it might well be that your ambient temperature is too high; in warmer conditions the resin will be a lower viscosity and a lot tackier. If you cool down your work area, or even just cool down the adhesive film, it will be much easier to remove the backing.

The film is nominally around 0.2mm thick in its uncured state. However, post curing, the thickness will reduce and vary depending on the use and curing process.
