Prepreg Braided Sleeves

TCR uses epoxy resins specifically designed for braided reinforcements made of carbon, fiberglass, aramid or any combination. All formulations are storable at room temperature. Refrigerated shipping and storage are not required.

Braid is a system where tows/rovings are intertwined. No two tows/rovings are twisted around each other. Braid is also defined as a family of fabrics continually woven on the bias. Tubular sleevings are the most common type of braid. Braid may be used for aerospace, medical, recreational and industrial applications.

During composite fabrication, tubular braids are opened up and applied to a molding tool or core. Then they are consolidated with stretch tape, vacuum bags, or matched two-piece
