Airtech introduces new LTC3 carbon prepregs

Airtech Advanced Materials, based in Huntington Beach, California, is introducing its new prepregs developed for composite tooling, which will be presented at Composites Europe show, which takes place in Stuttgart, next week. LTC3 Carbon Prepregs are designed to offer a low temperature cure and high temperature use after post cure. LTC Prepregs allow the use of lower cost master model materials, the company reports.

LTC3-G1400 is a lightweight tooling prepreg with a low temperature for the manufacture of composite tooling laminates capable of high temperature use.

Finally, LTC3-G1800 is a heavier weight tooling prepreg used to produce moulds with a low temperature cure. “The heavy weight material is used to build laminate bulk faster thus reducing the number of plies required. Saving up to 30% labour time on standard laminates, plus cost savings,” the company adds.

Benefits are said to include lower CTE effect, greater tooling accuracy, less tool/part reworking; lower cost, low temperature master model materials; and lower cost tooling laminates with heavier bulk ply G1800.
