Solvay CYCOM® E773FR Epoxy + Unidirectional Carbon Tape Prepreg
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Carbon Fiber/Thermoset Composite; Epoxy; Epoxy/Carbon Fiber Composite

Material Notes: CYCOM® E773/E773FR resins are controlled flow epoxy systems with a large processing window. They exhibit excellent high temperature performance up to 180°F (82°C) wet service temperature. The systems have good retention of tack and drape up to 20 days at room temperature in prepreg form. A straight two hour ramp cure in either a press or an autoclave may be used. No post-cure is requirement to achieve service temperature.

Features & Benefits:

  • 250°F (121°C) cure
  • 180°F (82°C) wet service temperature
  • Low exotherm profile
  • Controlled flow
  • Large processing window
  • Available in both flame retardant (FR) and non-flame retardant grades
  • Autoclave or press mold processing
  • Available in unidirectional tape, fabric, roving, slit tape and cross-plied forms
  • History of performance on helicopter blades and other structural components
  • Shelf life of 12 months at 0°F (-18°C), 20 days at 72°F (22°C)
Applications:
  • Helicopter blades
  • Other aircraft structural components
Property data typical for laminates with cured ply thickness of 0.0056 inches for E773FR resin with AS4 12K 145 Unidirectional Tape, Standard Modulus Carbon Fiber (33 Msi/228 GPa). 'Wet' Mechanical property data are for samples conditioned 160°F (71°C) and 90% RH to 1% moisture.
