Prepreg advances in Japan
Tuesday, 11 November 2014

The latest developments from Japan?s Toho Tenax a new prepreg offering super-high heat and oxidation resistance and a second that achieves rapid curing for increased productivity and features excellent surface texture and formability.

Suitable for automotive and aircraft engine compartments, the company?s new bismaleimide resin pre-impregnated prepreg does not reach glass-transition below 320 degrees thanks to its original resin-formulation technology. It also maintains oxidation resistance without heat cracks under continuous use in the range of upper 200 degrees.
