Australia and New Zealand Carbon Fiber Prepreg Market By Application (Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, and Others), By Geography (Australia, New Zealand)– Analysis & Forecast to 2020
Prepreg is the common term for a reinforcing fabric, which has been pre-impregnated with a resin system. Uncured prepreg carbon fiber can be shaped into twisted molds, which make its use suitable for complex and smaller parts. This feature of carbon fiber prepreg makes it preferable over traditional laminating, vacuum bagging, or resin infusion. Carbon fiber prepreg applications are on a rise in the composites industry as manufacturers in various industries are increasingly adopting this versatile material. It is pertaining to the fact that carbon fiber prepreg materials display various useful feasible properties, such as their sturdy, light-weighted, and good corrosion resistance attributes. Carbon prepreg materials offer a number of advantages, such as high stiffness & strength and a greater corrosion resistance in comparison to metals. Composite products made with prepreg materials can provide a higher fiber volume fraction than products made by using other processes, such as filament winding or pultrusion. Additionally, prepreg offers an extensive range of resin and fiber combinations, which enables the user to maximize performance. Prepregs are also used in the commercial aerospace, military/defense, general aviation, space/satellite, marine, sporting goods, automotive, civil engineering, wind energy, and transportation markets among others.
