Advanced Composite Materials Inc. (ACM, Berryville, AR, US) is featuring its CEL 375 carbon fiber/epoxy prepreg laminate for the composite tooling market. CEL 375 is comprised of balanced, 0°/90° unidirectional central layers of carbon fiber with a 6-oz woven fabric outer surface for laminate trim and drill. ACM co-cures a nylon peel ply to both outer surfaces for a subsequent bonding surface as well as a protective outer surface layer, which is typically removed by the end user. The press-cured prepreg laminate is flat across a 5-ft by 10-ft area to within 0.005-inch constant thickness. Stock laminate is 0.25-inch by 48 inches by 96 inches; laminate up to 0.5-inch thick and 60 inches by 120 inches is available. Tg is 400°F.
