Solvay CYCOM® 950-1 Epoxy Prepreg with 42%-HS-5H-280 GSM 5 Harness Carbon Fabric
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Carbon Fiber/Thermoset Composite; Epoxy; Epoxy/Carbon Fiber Composite

Material Notes: CYCOM® 950-1 modified epoxy resin is a 121°C (250°F) cure system with the performance of a 177°C (350°F) curing epoxy. CYCOM 950-1 prepreg is curable under vacuum-bag-only pressure conditions. CYCOM 950-1 is a controlled flow, net resin content material that offers significant advantages over wet lay-up systems for structural repairs. Advantages include favorable stress-strain characteristics, product quality and consistency, speed of lay-up and vastly improved health and safety characteristics.

Features & Benefits:

  • Aerospace qualified
  • Low outgassing. Approved for space flight
  • Controlled flow material
  • Improved toughness compared with first- and second-generation structural epoxies
  • Dry service temperature of 150°C (300°F) when cured at 135°C (275°F)
  • Mechanical properties of a 177°C (350°F) curing material when cured at 135°C (275°F)
  • Mechanical properties to 104°C (220°F) hot/wet
  • Oven/vacuum bag cure capability as well as autoclave positive pressure cure
  • Efficient for structural repair
  • Conventional drying, lay-up, vacuum bagging and localized low-level heating is all that is required for most applications
  • Shop life of 8 weeks at ambient conditions
  • Suitable for laminate and sandwich panel usage
  • Co-curable with various aerospace qualified adhesive materials
Suggested Applications:
  • Helicopter fuselage and rotor components
  • Wing structures
  • Field repairs and permanent repairs
  • Space flight applications
