Solvay CYCOM® 970 Epoxy - Carbon Fiber Reinforced PlainWeave
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Epoxy; Epoxy/Carbon Fiber Composite

Material Notes: CYCOM® 970 epoxy resin is a controlled flow, 350°F (177°C) curing epoxy resin with good 300°F (149°C) dry service capability. CYCOM 970 is excellent for producing nonporous, void-free honeycomb sandwich structures, as well as laminates. CYCOM 970 has adjustable tack and is available as unidirectional tape, fabric or roving. The prepreg is formulated for autoclave processing. Recommended cure is two hours at 350°F (177°C). No post-cure is required for dry service capability. The recommended lay-up procedure is L-9 for honeycomb core or L-8 for laminates. Recommended cure procedure is C-8. CYCOM 970 can be impregnated via solution technique on all available fibers and fabrics. Typical applications for CYCOM 970 include structural aircraft components requiring honeycomb sandwich panels.

Features & Benefits:

  • 350°F (177°C) cure
  • Available in a broad range of fibers and forms including tape, fabric and roving
  • Controlled flow resin for use in making honeycomb parts
  • 300°F (149°C) dry and 200°F (93°C) wet service temperature
  • Sandwich panel and laminate usage
  • Autoclave processing
  • Shelf life 6 months at 0°F (-18°C), 10 days at 72°F (22°C)
Applications: Structural aircraft components requiring honeycomb sandwich panels.
