Hexcel launches fast-curing HexPly M77HF prepreg for low-pressure processing | JEC Group

Boeing and Airbus, which account for the majority of Hexcel’s commercial aerospace revenues, have both been progressively increasing their adoption of composites over the years see Figure 1. This involved development of both fibre and resin technology within the company.

Today, engine nacelles and thrust reversers include so many major composite components that carbon fibre epoxy prepregs account for typically half the volume of the entire nacelle structure. This development will provide cost improvement in terms of being able to process out of an autoclave-type environment, together with a high mechanical performance.

From carbon fibres and reinforcement fabrics, through to RTM resins, prepregs, tooling materials and hxcel parts, Hexcel is present at every stage. Hexcel has significantly expanded it carbon fibre and prepreg production capacity in order to support the A programme.

HexPly M77HF also has good resin transparency, provides good surface quality without pinholesand can be supplied with black pigmented resin.
