Synopsis of Carbon Fiber Prepreg Market
Prepreg are a type of composite fibers which consists of a thermoset polymer material. Carbon fiber prepreg is a fiber material that is pre-impregnated with catalyzed resins. The manufacturing of these carbon fibers requires vacuum bagging supplies, composite vacuum pumps, and high thermal stable molds. These fibers require a very low temperature of around -20 º C to prevent it from getting cured before the application. The two major methods used in the synthesis of carbon fiber prepreg are hot melt process and solvent dip process. The advantages such as high tensile strength, chemical resistance, and lightweight makes it suitable for many end-use industries such as aerospace, automobile, and wind turbine industries among others.
