CompositesWorld published in its September 2015 issue a story by CW technical editor Sara Black about the development of fast-cure epoxy resin systems for use in automotive composites fabrication. The story, titled, “Automotive Composites: Thermosets for the Fast Zone,” appears on p. 46 of that issue. The article included a reference, on p. 49, to Toray Composites (America) Inc.’s (Tacoma, WA, US) G83C epoxy prepreg. Included with this reference was a parenthetical note stating that this prepreg was “used on the Boeing 787 program.”

The parenthetical reference, however, was based on incorrect anecdotal information, and a Toray representa- tive, when given the opportunity to review the story for factual accuracy prior to publication, noted in the review text that the reference connecting G83C to the Boeing 787 program was not factual and should be stricken from the article.

Unfortunately, that request was overlooked during the subsequent editing process and, as a result, the reference went into print. CW’s editorial staff has since been informed of the misstep, has omitted the incorrect reference in the article’s online and other digital formats, and here apologizes for the oversight. The Toray G83C prepreg material in question is for automotive use only, and it is not used in aerospace applications. CW regrets the error.
