KS Composites and Composites Evolution Develop New Tooling Prepreg System

December 03 2018

An innovative hybrid composite tooling system developed by Composites Evolution utilizes the benefits of flax fiber reinforcements to reduce the cost of carbon-epoxy mold tools.

Working in partnership with molders KS Composites, Composites Evolution has developed a new tooling prepreg system based on a hybrid combination of carbon and flax reinforcements. In trials performed by KS Composites, the hybrid carbon-flax tooling material has successfully completed over 400 thermal cycles. Furthermore, a mold tool manufactured from the system is now used in routine production.

Both carbon and flax reinforced epoxy tooling prepregs are now available from Composites Evolution as part of their Evopreg EPT range of tooling materials.
