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


Prepreg materials are pre-impregnated fibers for the manufacture of composite components; they are applied widely in the wind energy and aerospace industries. 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. This book provides a holistic approach, showing the influence and mutual interaction of the parameters involved in the production of fiber composite components.

  • Current state of prepreg technology, generation, and development as well as their variations and trends
  • Fundamentals of prepreg preparation and starting materials
  • Processing technology and automation
  • Interactions between construction/design and material and between tooling material and composite components/design
  • Testing of prepreg semi-finished products and components; typical error patterns
