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.

XC130 450g 2x2 Twill 12k Prepreg Carbon Fibre (1250mm)

The backing ply for our XPREG® XC130 autoclave-cure prepreg carbon fibre system. This is an uncured prepreg material and requires an oven or autoclave to cure it.

This 450gsm 12k reinforcement uses a high strength TR50S fibre for maximum performance and 2x2 twill weave for 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® XC130 is an epoxy-based component prepreg system with a 130°C maximum service temperature developed for autoclave or other positive pressure cure.

This toughened resin system offers excellent mechanical properties whilst its clear formulation and excellent surface finish make it suitable for the manufacture of visual quality carbon fibre components. XC130 has a long out-life with an intermediate tack level making for easy handling and laminating whilst its variable cure temperature from 80°C allows a wide range of mould systems to be used.

XC130 is fully compatible with our XA120 adhesive film for the construction of complex composite structures, including honeycomb or foam cored laminates.

The autoclave prepreg carbon fibre backing 450g 12k material listed on this page is recommended for use as a backing ply, typically backing up a single layer of XC130 210g 3k Surface Ply.However autoclave prepreg carbon fibre 12k can be used in multiple layers where necessary although it can be beneficial to debulk the material for thicker laminates.

Typical Uses

XC130 is the recommended system for the manufacture of both structural and cosmetic applications where components will be cured in an autoclave or otherwise under positive pressure (such as heated platen press).

The combination of excellent mechanical performance, visual quality appearance and class-A surface finish make XC130 prepregs suitable for a wide range of applications from large-scale structural components to high-precision decorative 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® XC130 is designed to be autoclave cured or otherwise cured under positive pressure (such as heated platen or pressurised bladder).

Initial cure is possible from 80°C although service temperature will be determined by the final cure temperature.

CURE CYCLES AND RESULTING Tg

Cure Temp Comments Initial Min Cure Time Resulting Tg
80°C (Minimum) 16hrs 90°C
90°C 8hrs 100°C
100°C 4hrs 110°C
120°C (Maximum) 2hrs 120°C
130°C Post Cure 2hrs 140°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)

It is not recommended to use hand laminated Uni-Mould tools in an autoclave due to the likelihood that voids within the moulds will cause blisters and distortion in the mould at elevated temperature and pressure.

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.

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.

To achieve a good quality pinhole free cosmetic finish, we would recommend at least 3 bar as the minimum pressure applied during the curing process.
