Carl Hanser Verlag (Munich, Germany) has published Composite Technology: Prepregs and Monolithic Part Fabrication Technologies by Hauke Lengsfeld, Felipe Wolff-Fabris, Johannes Krämer, Javier Lacalle, and Volker Altstädt. Prepregs, the authors note, have gained increasing popularity in all segments of the composites industry because of their versatility, high-fiber volume content and large variety of fiber-matrix combinations. The properties of these semi-finished products, the type of processing and the component design collectively play an important role in the quality and suitability for mass production of a fiber composite component. The book:

  • Covers the important advances made in research and development, both in academic and industrial libraries;
  • Identifies the fundamental relationships between material structure, processing and material properties;
  • Introduces significant developments of modern prereg technology;
  • Provides a holistic approach, showing the influence and mutual interaction of the parameters involved in the production of fiber composite components.

Contents include: Introduction; Preregs and Their Precursors; Prepreg Technology; Processing Technology; Curing Technologies; Tooling Technology; Testing of Prepregs; Design and Production.
