Norplex-Micarta (Postville, IA, US) has introduced EnableX, a continuous fiber prepreg that can be co-cured in a multimaterial molding system to produce near net shapes. EnableX materials are specifically designed for compression molding and tested by Norplex-Micarta to ensure compatibility with the process. In addition, Norplex-Micarta’s in-house laboratory and development capabilities allow for new concepts to be prototyped, or datasets to be developed to support specific design criteria. EnableX has been verified on several epoxy and phenolic resin systems, with more in development. Reinforcement options include natural fibers such as cotton or paper, carbon fiber, glass fibers and fibers that significantly alter the behavior of the material such as PTFE or thermoplastics.
