Prepreg is a type of composite material that is used in a variety of applications, including the aerospace, automotive, and sporting goods industries. Prepreg is made by impregnating a reinforcing material, such as carbon fiber, with a resin system. The impregnated material is then cured, typically using heat and pressure, to create a strong and lightweight composite.

Prepregs are typically used in conjunction with other composite manufacturing methods, such as autoclave curing or vacuum bagging. In autoclave curing, the prepreg is placed in a mold and cured in an autoclave, which is a high-pressure chamber. In vacuum bagging, the prepreg is placed in a mold and covered with a bag. The bag is then sealed and evacuated, which removes the air from the mold and prevents the resin from curing prematurely.
There are a few key trends in prepreg technology, which are detailed below.
- Increased use of lighter weight materials: In order to reduce the weight of prepreg parts, manufacturers are increasingly using lighter weight materials such as carbon fiber and Kevlar.
- Increased use of higher strength materials: In order to improve the strength of prepreg parts, manufacturers are increasingly using higher strength materials such as carbon fiber and Kevlar.
- Increased use of more durable materials: In order to improve the durability of prepreg parts, manufacturers are increasingly using more durable materials such as carbon fiber and Kevlar.
- Increased use of more heat resistant materials: In order to improve the heat resistance of prepreg parts, manufacturers are increasingly using more heat resistant materials such as carbon fiber and Kevlar.
