Details

Our Carbon Fiber Room Temperature Prepreg is a 5.9 oz 2x2 twill weave fabric woven from 3K carbon fibers and impregnated with a thermosetting epoxy resin system. It can be stored at room temperatures and does not require freezer storage. With the long out life of the resin matrix, the carbon fiber prepreg can be shipped and processed at room temperatures. It is ideal for use when a long shelf life is desired, high-temperature capabilities are not required and controlled resin content is wanted.


The 2x2 twill construction provides the classic "carbon fiber" appearance so desirable on composite parts and makes it a highly pliable fabric is ideal for applications with compound curves. The unique epoxy resin system allows for various flexible cure cycles and has a long out-life.


Please allow extra order processing time when order prepreg fabrics.

No freezer needed for this prepreg!

Received my order and it was ready to go for my project needs. Love that I can get a prepreg that doesn't require freezer storage!
