Kordsa (Istanbul,Turkey) has introduced CM14, a new fast-cure prepreg system for use in press-molding and designed for manufacturing large-volume, low-cost, high-quality composite parts. Kordsa says CM14 eliminates waterspot and whitespot problems, reportedly providing high visual clarity. The new resin, says the company, was designed to provide high-grade part surface quality with a visible carbon fiber look. It is said to enable prepreg use in automotive mass production.

  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.

  • Forged composites replace complex metal parts

    Powerhouse manufacturer’s high-pressure compression molding process forms prepregged CFRP components with forged-metal properties.

  • The matrix

    The matrix binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality. A composite matrix may be a polymer, ceramic, metal or carbon. Here’s a guide to selection.
