Prepreg-ACM to export its CF fabrics

News International-French

29 Jun 2015

Prepreg-ACM, a part of the Composite Holding Company, and a manufacturer of CF-based fabrics and prepregs has launched a warehouse to sell its products in European Union countries. The warehouse is located in Kladno, Czech Republic.

The warehouse holds a whole range of CF-based multiaxial and aesthetic fabrics to be used for manufacturing polymeric composite materials in European countries. As compared with conventional CF fabrics and tapes, multiaxial fabrics demonstrate better deflection, compression, and tensile test results, as well as better mechanical properties of fluctuating load resistance. Stitching together several layers of fibre improves the product mechanical properties, makes the product lighter, allows for using less resin and makes the manufacturing process more technology-savvy. Such materials are mainly used in marine and auto manufacturing industries.

Aesthetic fabrics are characterized by unique patterns and colours. These are fabrics manufactured from carbon fibre with 3,000 filaments (3K) with FAW 200 gsm and heavier (depending on customers' requirements), as well as hybrid fabrics from aramid, glass and other types of fibre. Such materials are used for interior, cars, sporting goods element decoration, as well as for manufacturing light aircraft parts.

Prepreg-ACM products are used by Italian yacht manufacturers Sanlorenzo and Valdettaro, T&T Metalli i Compositi (an Italian composite materials manufacturer), and Polychem - a composite materials manufacturer from Austria.
