Solvay BPS 240 format 1
Categories: Polymer; Thermoset; Epoxy

Material Notes: Description: BP240 is a two-ply, partially impregnated epoxy prepreg system designed for the manufacture of Body-in-White (BIW) panels with excellent surface quality from vacuum-only processing at cure temperatures between 85°C and 150°C (185°F and 302°F). The first ply utilizes Cytec’s ZPREG partial impregnation technology, consisting of a structural fabric coupled to a surface scrim and a high performance resin system. The second ply combines low-density syntactic core material and structural fabric to create significant panel rigidity in a rapid laminating format. The system is designed to be ready for painting without abrading or reworking. In many instances, paint can be applied directly to a degreased panel. Excellent environmental performance can be expected from panels painted in Hi-Bake & Lo-Back paint systems.

Features & Benefits:

  • 7 to 30 days out life at 21°C(70°F)
  • 12 months storage at -18°C (0°F)
  • Robust material format for consistent tack, excellent drape and form conformation
  • Material architecture developed for reliable pin-hole-free finish, excellent panel flatness and rigidity
  • High performance resin systems designed for service temperatures up to 106°C(320°F)
  • Excellent physical and environmental performance in painted automotive applications
  • Available, as standard, in carbon fiber and glass fiber variants, either in rolls or in pre-cut kits
  • Recommended for use with high-quality composite or metallic tooling
  • Flame retardant; self-extinguishing when tested to ISO 3795/FMVS302
