Polyspeed® Laminates Polyspeed® laminates are fiber-reinforced epoxy resin impregnated materials that are supplied in a cured state. Hexcel manufactures a wide range of pressed laminates made with unidirectional or multidirectional carbon, glass and aramid reinforcements as well as hybrid laminates which combine glass, carbon and aramid fibers to meet specific customer mechanical properties requirements. Being precured, laminates are chemically stable and have established mechanical properties, making them ready-to-use for compounding with foam or adhesives. Laminates are used in layer...

Reinforcement Styles HexForce® Reinforcements Woven Fabrics Fabrics consist of at least two threads which are woven together: the warp and the weft. The weave style can be varied according to crimp and drapeability. Low crimp gives better mechanical performance because straighter fibers carry greater loads; a drapeable fabric is easier to lay up over complex forms. Main Weave Styles PLAIN WEAVE Low drapeability/high crimp SATIN WEAVE (4, 5, 8, 11) Good drapeability/low crimp TWILL WEAVE (2/1, 3/1, 2/2) Average drapeability/ average crimp PrimeTex® Reinforcements PrimeTex® is a range of...

HiMax™ Multiaxial Reinforcements Multiaxial Fabrics Hexcel’s HiMax™ multiaxial reinforcements are a unique concept non-crimp technology for industrial applications that provide strength and stiffness exactly where required, as a result of the preplacement of oriented unidirectional tapes joined by a novel stitching technology. HiMax™ allows great flexibility of fiber orientation with previously unknown and still unmatched width adjustment capabilities. Thick materials can be manufactured using thin plies, providing customers with a cost effective solution that reduces production time. This...

Prepreg Properties What is a prepreg? A prepreg consists of a combination of a matrix (or resin) and fiber reinforcement. It is ready to use in the component manufacturing process. It is available in: Fabric form (Woven, Unidirectional, Multiaxial) Support Polyethylene Protector Fabric reinforcement Unidirectional reinforcement Unidirectional (UD) form (one direction of reinforcement) Polyethylene Protector Silicone Paper Protector What is the role of the matrix? The role of the matrix is to support the fibers and bond them together in the composite material. It transfers any applied loads...
