Solvay CYCOM® 5216 Epoxy - Unidirectional E-Glass Prepreg
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Epoxy

Material Notes: CYCOM® 5216 is a 200 – 250°F (93 – 121°C) curing, modified epoxy resin. Service temperature range is -67 to 180°F (-55 to 82°C). This prepreg is manufactured by hot melt processing and is virtually solvent-free. Glass fiber reinforced CYCOM 5216 is used in military and commercial helicopter blades and structures and is extensively used for engine nacelles.

Features & Benefits:

  • Available in carbon, aramid and glass fiber prepreg
  • Excellent fatigue resistance
  • High flow with long shop life
  • Autoclave and press cure
  • Maximum continuous service temperature up to 180°F (82°C)
  • Low pressure moldable
  • Good tack and drape characteristics
  • Excellent translation of fiber strength
  • Tape laying machine capable
Applications:
  • Aircraft secondary structure
  • Rotorcraft structure and blade applications
