Solvay CYCOM® 2040 Epoxy Prepreg Unidirectional Tape with T800-140
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Epoxy

Material Notes: CYCOM® 2040 is a very tough modified epoxy resin system with exceptional high temperature performance. It is suitable for highly stressed components exposed to elevated temperature environments (under bonnet/engine bay) including impact/crash structures. A two hour cure at 180°C (356°F) generates a Tg of over 200°C (392°F)* and offers excellent mechanical properties at both ambient and elevated temperatures. CYCOM 2040 is available on woven and unidirectional carbon, glass and man-made fibers.

Features & Benefits:

  • High levels of mechanical property retention at elevated temperatures
  • Controlled flow
  • Excellent cured surface quality
  • Low cured resin density (1.21g/cm³)
  • Free-standing post curable to 200°C (356°F) for maximum temperature performance
  • Shop life of 21 days at ambient [23°C (73°F)]
  • Available in a wide range of fibers and fabric weaves
Suggested Applications:
  • Primary vehicle structures including chassis, engine frames suspension components and aerodynamic wings
  • Impact structures including nose cone, side and rear
  • Components requiring operating temperatures up to 200°C (392°F)
Nominal reinforcement content for reported properties is 36% T800-140.
