A New DAP-Polyester Resin for Carbon Fibers



Epoxy resins are the primary matrix materials used in carbon fiber composites, and prepreg systems made with these epoxies offer good handling characteristics and good ambient and elevated temperature properties. However, epoxy resins do have certain deficiencies in that the prepreg materials must be kept refrigerated, cost is higher than other available thermoset materials, and cure time is often long.
