HexPly® M79 - 3

Rapid cure function delivers a 50% reduction in cycle time When developing the new HexPly® M79 prepreg system, the technical team focused on three things: reducing the exotherm so that the intermediate dwell time could be eliminated; reducing the overall cure time; and matching or exceeding production attributes of infusion technology. HexPly® M79 offers significant flexibility in terms of cure cycles, so overall production times can be optimized to the manufacturer’s needs accelerating manufacture throughput – as the cycle times reduce, the cost of blade production is also significantly...
