TORAYCA® Prepreg ET40 with Superior Formability

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This presentation introduces Toray’s novel prepreg material ET40 achieving superior levels of formability with complex shapes while keeping equivalent mechanical properties to conventional continuous fibre UD prepreg. ET40 has the potential to expand the application of composite materials to products requiring high mechanical properties which could not previously be molded with UD prepreg. The extensible and transformable nature of ET40 will also allow a greater design freedom. The audience will learn about concept of the product, the manufacturing process and examples of its applications. Real parts of ET40 in Sports and Leisure field will be seen at Toray Booth (Hall 5, J 30).
