Product Forms Prepregs/Semi-Pregs - This material form represents fabrics and unidirectional tapes which have been impregnated with thermoplastic resin. Depending upon the process and polymer used the resin may reside on the surface of the fabric (semi-preg) or may be fully impregnated (prepreg). Thermoplastic fabric based prepregs are drapable, but do not have tack. They are used for larger single curvature parts where plies are built up. Unidirectional thermoplastic tapes are best suited for use in automated tape placement or automated blank lay up with secondary thermoforming operations,...
