Barrday Composite Solutions (formerly Lewcott Corp., Millbury, Mass.) has introduced LC294 and LC296, a family of high-performance interior prepregs that provide sub 30/30 OSU heat release, combined with low smoke, self extinguishing and good self adhesive properties and surface finish. Additionally, LC296 is a snap cure (10-17 minutes at 265-280°F/130-138°C), toughened, phenolic based prepreg system. The materials provide low OSU heat release properties and have already been qualified at a major manufacturer of interior components.
