Shipping Information

Classification

This product is not classed as dangerous goods for transport and can be shipped to all destinations without restriction.

Shipping 'Prepreg' Products

Prepreg materials are stored in our freezers at -20°C and are shipped from our warehouse still frozen.

This prepreg has a particularly short 'out-life' and for the best performance, the amount of time it spends at room temperature should be kept to an absolute minimum.

During summer months or periods of hot weather, only order this prepreg at the start of the week (Monday or Tuesday) to avoid adding extra shipping days over the weekend. Alternatively, please contact us to discuss alternative shipping arrangements.

Unless you plan to use the product immediately, it should be placed into frozen storage as soon as possible on receipt.

Customs Clearance

We remind all international 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 we 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.

Package Size

When packaged, this product is over 1m in length. A small additional handling charge will apply when shipping to some countries and regions. When applicable, this handling charge will be included in the automatic shipping calculation shown on the basket page.

XC110 416g 2x2 Twill 6k Prepreg Carbon Fibre (1250mm)

The backing ply for our XPREG® XC110 out-of-autoclave prepreg carbon fibre system. This is an uncured prepreg material and requires an oven or autoclave to cure it.

This 416gsm 6k prepreg uses a 2x2 twill weave for the classic carbon fibre appearance and excellent drape characteristics. It can be used on its own, in one or more plies, or together with lighter surface ply for the best possible surface finish.

This prepreg reinforcement is 1.25m (1250mm) wide and sold in a choice of prepacked roll lengths.

XPREG® XC110 is an advanced OOA prepreg carbon fibre backing system designed specifically for out-of-autoclave (vacuum bag, oven cure) processing. After several years in development, XC110 is a class-leading prepreg system capable of producing carbon fibre components with a 'class A' surface finish and minimal void content when oven-cured under vacuum pressure only.

Components made using the XC110 resin system offer mechanical properties comparable to autoclave-cure systems (such as XPREG® XC130) without the need for expensive autoclave plant or the associated cycle costs. The system is also ideally suited for large components which exceed the capacity of typical autoclaves, such as boat hulls and turbine blades.

XC110 prepregs can be backed-up with (and co-cured alongside) unidirectional reinforcement (from the XC130 range) and are fully compatible with our XA120 adhesive film meaning that even the most complex composite structures - including honeycomb cores - can be achieved out-of-autoclave.

The 416g 6k material listed on this page is recommended for use as an out of autoclave prepreg carbon fibre backing ply, typically used to back-up a layer of XC110 210g 3k Surface Ply. It is however possible to use this large pattern OOA prepreg carbon fibre 6k material as a surface ply, although slightly more surface print should be expected from this heavier fibre.

Typical Uses

OOA prepreg carbon fibre surface fabrics such as this XC110 are the recommended system for both structural and cosmetic applications where components will be cured without an autoclave.

The combination of excellent mechanical performance, visual quality appearance and class-A surface finish make XC110 prepregs suitable for a wide range of applications from large-scale structural components to high-precision cosmetic parts.

How to Buy

All XPREG® prepregs are stored on site in our freezers. To reduce handling time and allow same-day dispatch, prepregs are available in pre-cut roll lengths. Choose the roll length you require from the drop-down list at the top of the page. When ordering a full roll of fabric the drop-down list shows the typical roll length but please allow for length variance of plus or minus 1m which has already been factored into the low unit price of our full length rolls.

Your XPREG® prepreg is sealed in air-tight packaging and will ship from us still frozen. Please see the transport tab for further details and important information about delivery.

Further Information

Curing

XPREG® XC110 is designed to be oven cured in a vacuum bag at full vacuum pressure however it can also be cured in an autoclave or hot-press. Minimum vacuum pressure is 10mbar.

For best results, an accurately controlled multi-stage temperature cycle with final cure temperature of 120°C should be followed. See technical datasheet or XC110 Processing Guide for details, including a range of alternative cure cycles from 85°C.

Suitable Moulds/Tooling

Moulds/tools should be epoxy-based composite moulds, epoxy tooling board or metal. In all cases, moulds must be temperature stable to a minimum of 85°C but ideally to 120°C.

Fully Compatible:

  • High temp epoxy hand-layup moulds (e.g. EG160 / EMP160)
  • Carbon or glass fibre prepreg moulds (e.g. XPREG® XT135)
  • Epoxy tooling board (e.g. EB700 Epoxy Tooling Board with S120 Board Sealer)
  • Aluminium / stainless steel moulds
  • Toughened glass (for flat sheet/panels)

Although it is possible to use vinylester tools (such as Uni-Mould™) they are not recommended due to the increased possibility of surface imperfections (pin holes) which can occur when XPREG® XC110 is cured in the presence of vinylester.

See technical data sheet and XC110 Processing Guide for full details on mould compatibility.

Storage and Handling

When not in use, XPREG® prepregs should be kept frozen at -18°C (0°F) in sealed plastic packaging. When ready to use, the material should be removed from the freezer and allowed to thaw fully to room temperature before being removed from the packaging.

Remaining material should be re-sealed before returning to the freezer to avoid the risk of moisture uptake.

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?Ask our technical team a question.

It is quite common for domestic ovens to only have a lowest settable temperature of around 70C so you're not alone, however, the temperature of the initial 'dwell' is particularly important for OOA (out of autoclave) prepregs and can have quite an effect on the quality of the surface finish on the component so you might need to accept some compromise if you can't accurately keep the initial dwell down to 70C.

Given that the lowest temperature you can set is 76C (when the target would be 70C) I would just suggest using the standard cure cycle (or in your case the standard 'switched' cure cycle, because you can't set a ramp rate) and then leave the rest the same. Technically, you could shorten the initial dwell because you're running a slightly higher temperature, but because the accuracy and stability of a thermostatically switched domestic oven isn't great, you're better off curing a little longer than you need to, to be on the safe side.

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.

The final ply thickness will vary a little depending upon how it is processed, This material will be approximately 0.45mm per layer. 

This fabric uses a 416gsm base cloth which is then impregnated with resin at a 38% fibre resin ratio to give a total weight of 693g per square meter of finished cloth.
