Prepreg Uni-Directional Tape

TCR’s line of carbon unidirectional tapes features a patented thermoset epoxy resin system with extended out-times at room temperature. Customer may specify resin types, resin content and fiber areal weights (FAW) from 150 to 600 gsm. Uni-tapes are available with poly backing. Reinforcements may be selected from various carbon fiber suppliers.

Unidirectional tapes are fibers impregnated with a resin matrix; all fibers run in the same direction. They can be made in a variety of weights and thicknesses to meet customer requirements.

TCR commercial grade prepreg uni-tapes are ideal for fabricating composite products that require long lay-up times and thick laminate construction.

Uni-tapes are well-suited for recreation, infrastructure, industrial and medical applications.
