Shipping Information

Restrictions

This product is not classed as dangerous goods for transport and can be shipped to all destinations without restriction.

Prepreg Product - IMPORTANT!

Uncured prepreg materials are stored at -20°C and are shipped still frozen from our facility. This prepreg has an 'out-life' of at least 30 days at room temperature and so typical delivery times will still leave plenty of safe 'out-life' remaining.

During summer months or periods of hot weather, it is recommended to order prepregs at the start of the week (Monday or Tuesday) to avoid adding extra shipping days over the weekend.

Unless you plan to use the product immediately, it should be placed into frozen storage as soon as possible on receipt.

Package Size

The packaged size of this product exceeds 1.2m in length and so an additional handling surcharge (charged by the courier) will be included in the quoted shipping cost.

XT135/S 250g 3k Tooling Prepreg Carbon (1250mm)

Surface ply for our XT135 out-of-autoclave prepreg carbon fibre tooling system. This is an uncured prepreg material and requires an oven or autoclave to cure it.

The XT135 tooling system can be cured in an oven under vacuum pressure only and used to produce high quality carbon fibre moulds/tools suitable for high temperature use. A single layer of this special 250gsm surface ply should be combined with two or more layers of the heavier backing ply should be combined with a single layer of surface ply.

This prepreg reinforcement is 1.25m (1250mm) wide and sold in a choice of prepacked roll lengths.

XT135 is a specialist carbon fibre tooling prepreg system designed to produce dimensionally accurate carbon fibre composite moulds using vacuum bag and oven cure only ( out of autoclave tooling prepreg ).

The tooling system is made up of XT135/S surface ply listed on this page and the XT135/B backing ply.

A lightweight composite mould suitable for modest production volumes can be produced using just one surface and two backing plies (subject to mould geometry) whilst the recommended laminate for a production mould is one surface and four backing plies. See technical datasheet for full details on suggested layups and layup considerations.

Typical Uses

XT135/B is an out of autoclave tooling prepreg backing layer part of the XT135 tooling system developed specifically for out-of-autoclave cure and as such uses a special gelcoat-like filled resin surface. XT135 should be used for the production of composite tools for cure and use out-of-autoclave.

If tools are required for autoclave use then we would suggest our XT180 or XT210 autoclave-cure tooling systems which don’t require filled resins and therefore offer slightly superior shrinkage and higher service temperatures.

Further Information

Use in Conjunction with CNC Machined Patterns

XT135 is ideal for use with CNC machined patterns to provide a sophisticated means of producing highly accurate composite moulds from a 3D CAD design.

The 3D CAD designed component is CNC machined from a high quality epoxy tooling board such as EB700 Epoxy Tooling Board including any flanges or splits that are required. The machined pattern is lightly finished by hand and then sealed and glossed using S120 Advanced Board & Mould Sealer. The pattern is then prepared using Easy-Lease Chemical Release Agent and is now ready to be used to produce the female mould using the XPREG® XT135 prepreg tooling system.

For a lightweight mould, a single layer of XT135/S surface ply is layered directly onto the prepared epoxy tooling board pattern. Two layers of XT135/B backing ply are then added to the laminate. The laminate is then vacuum bagged (using R120 P3 release film and BR180 breather) and then oven-cured under vacuum (see technical datasheet for cure cycle).

Once cured and post-cured, the resulting mould will be a highly accurate, temperature stable mould ideally suited for use with prepregs such as XPREG® XC110.

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?Ask our technical team a question.

Unfortunately we do not stock any pre-pregs with a flexible resin. The only flexible resin we supply is our EF80 Flexible Epoxy Resin which is suitable for wet lay and vacuum bagged processes.

Yes, certainly; although there are some important practical considerations. When making prepreg moulds you normally need substantial and robust 'patterns' to laminate the prepreg onto. It's generally not sufficient to have temporary 'barriers' positioned on a pattern to make the splits because these barriers are not secure enough to press the prepreg material down onto or vacuum bag against. Therefore, when making split moulds out of prepreg, you would normally use separate patterns for each split which have been machined with the flanges already included so that you have something substantial and secure to laminate against.

With the XPREG Tooling Pre-preg system, no additional gelcoat is needed. The Surface layer has sufficient resin in it to allow a good quality mould surface to be produced using just the Tooling system alone.
