Solvay CYCOM® 950 Epoxy Prepreg with HMF 133D/950 Carbon Fiber
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Epoxy; Epoxy/Carbon Fiber Composite

Material Notes: CYCOM® 950 resin is a 250 – 300°F (121 – 149°C) curing epoxy resin with good 220°F (104°C) dry service capability. It can be impregnated via hot melt or solution techniques on all available fibers and fabrics. CYCOM 950 is formulated for shrink tape processing, but it has been successfully processed by autoclave, press molding and vacuum bagging. Unidirectional tape and woven fabric impregnated with CYCOM 950 resin will retain excellent tack and drape for at least 10 days at 72°F (22°C). Standard cure is for 90 minutes at 275°F (135°C). No post cure is required for 220°F (104°C) dry service capability. The recommended autoclave lay-up procedure for this material is L-3 or L-6. The recommended cure procedure is C-6 or C-7 at 275°F (135°C).

Features & Benefits:

  • Available in a broad range of fibers and forms including tape, fabric and roving
  • Self-adhesive
  • Low flow
  • 220°F (104°C) dry and 180°F (82°C) wet service temperature
  • Laminate and sandwich panel usage
  • Multiprocessing capable: shrink tape, autoclave, press mold, vacuum bag
  • Shelf life of 6 months at 0°F (-18°C), 10 days at 72°F (22°C)
Applications: Tubular structures such as fishing rods, golf shafts and bike components
