Hexcel® HexTow® IM6 Carbon Fiber - Epoxy Composite
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Carbon Fiber/Thermoset Composite; Epoxy; Epoxy/Carbon Fiber Composite

Material Notes: HexTow™ IM6 carbon fiber is a continuous, high performance, intermediate modulus, PAN based fiber available in 12,000 (12K) filament count tows. The fiber has been surface treated and can be sized to improve its interlaminar shear properties, handling characteristics, and structural properties. HexTow™ IM6 fiber has shear properties equivalent to those of standard AS type fibers. It is suggested for use in prepregging and filament winding.
The unique properties of HexTow™ IM6 fiber, such as lower density (5% less than AS type), higher modulus (20% stiffer than AS type fibers), and good shear strength, allow structural designers to achieve both higher safety margins and lower weights for both stiffness and strength critical applications.
