Shipping Information

Export Licence Required

This product is classified under 'Dual Use' export controls and cannot be exported outside of the UK without an export licence.

Export to Norway, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Australia, Japan, USA and Canada

This product can be exported to the countries listed above under an Open General Export Licence (OGEL) but due to the additional paperwork required we can only do this for orders of £250 and above.

Customers will be required to complete an End User Undertaking (EUU) form before the goods can be dispatched.

Export to Other Countries

For customers outside of the OGEL region (Norway, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Australia, Japan, USA and Canada), we cannot ship this product without applying for an Single Individual Export Licence (SIEL). This process can take from 30 to 90 days and requires a lot of documentation and detailed undertakings. For this reason, we strongly recommend that customers outside of the the EU and other countries listed above do not order this product.

If you do still want to order this product, due to the paperwork and admin involved, we can only apply for export licences for orders of £1000 and above. Please contact us first to discuss your requirements.

Shipping to EU countries is now done through our European subsidiary based in the Netherlands. All EU customers should use www.easycomposites.eu.

Shipping 'Prepreg' Products

Prepreg materials are stored in our freezers at -20°C and are shipped from our warehouse still frozen. This prepreg has an 'out-life' of at least 30 days at room temperature and so typical delivery times will still leave plenty of 'out-life' remaining.

During summer months or periods of hot weather, it is recommended to order prepregs at the start of the week (Monday or Tuesday) to avoid adding extra shipping days over the weekend.

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

Because of their perishable nature, we only ship prepregs internationally on priority (air) services. As a result of this, it may not always be possible to order prepregs at the same time as some large or bulky items. If this is the case, the shipping calculator will warn you and suggest that you remove large items or place separate orders.

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.

XC130 300g Unidirectional Prepreg Carbon Fibre (300mm)

Unidirectional reinforcement using our XPREG® XC130 resin system but 100% compatible with our XC110 system. This is an uncured prepreg material and requires an oven or autoclave to cure it.

This 300gsm UD reinforcement is used to add maximum possible strength in a specific direction. It can be used on its own or combined with woven reinforcements.

This prepreg reinforcement is 0.3m (300mm) wide and sold in a choice of prepacked roll lengths.

300gsm unidirectional prepreg carbon fibre made using the XPREG® XC130 resin system. This 100% unidirectional reinforcement is entirely unsupported and so has no weft fibres to disrupt the the unidirectional fibres.

This UD prepreg can be used to add very specifically targeted (and oriented) strength to any composites component. Most typically, unidirectional reinforcement is used in conjunction with woven reinforcement to produce high performance components with strength exactly where it is needed.

This prepreg material can be used on its own or in conjunction with other XC130 prepregs (for autoclave or press curing). When cured in a press or autoclave this XC130 unidirectional prepreg can be used as any ply in the laminate, including the surface ply.

Use with XPREG® XC110 Out-of-Autoclave Prepreg

The XC130 resin system used in this prepreg is 100% compatible with the XPREG XC110 out-of-autoclave resin system and so this material can be used to add unidirectional reinforcement to laminates intended for out-of-autoclave cure.

When using XC130 prepregs (including this XC130 unidirectional carbon fibre prepreg) alongside XC110 prepregs for out-of-autoclave cure it is important to ensure that the first two plies down into the mould use the XC110 out-of-autoclave resin system. After the first two XC110 plies are down, XC130 prepregs (such as this unidirectional material) can be used without detriment to the surface finish.

How to Buy

This prepreg is supplied on a 300mm wide roll/tape and available in pre-rolled lengths of 2lm, 5lm, 10lm and the full 100lm roll.

Please choose the roll-length you require from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.

For very large or ongoing requirements please contact our sales team.

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 fibre used is a Toray T700 which has an average fibre diameter of 7 μm.

Generally a minimum of 3 bar would be reasonable to get good results.

Our XC110 OOA and XC130 Autoclave Component PrePreg and XA120 material don't necessarily need to be shipped in insulated/dry ice packed boxes but is shipped direct from our freezers meaning that for at least the first 12-24hours of the delivery, it remains frozen. We even have several long-term Asia and Australian/NZ based customers who regularly purchase PrePreg from us in large quantities without issues.

The out-life of the material (the cumulative time that the PrePreg can spend out of the freezer) is at least 28 days at 20°C - as such, you should still have a minimum of 20+days of useable life left on arrival. As soon as the material arrives with you, if you put it straight into the freezer, it will preserve the remaining outlife. In most cases the 28 days is conservative too and in practice, you will get more than this.

Pre-preg needs to be stored in a freezer at -18°C in sealed bags. If stored under these conditions, the pre-preg will have a shelf life of 12 months.

In theory you could use either. The difference in the two cure cycles is more about ensuring a good surface finish for out of autoclave applications (using XC110 surface plies). Therefore, our recommended cure cycle for combination laminated would be the XC110 cure cycle, ensuring that the first two plies are XC110.
