Sports & Leisure

 

Typical applications of Kordsa’s Prepreg in sport and leisure parts are following:

  • Bicycle frames, sits, wheels, rims, handlebars and pedals
  • Scuba fins, spears
  • Tennis rackets,
  • Surfs, boards, ski boards,
  • Artificial limbs, wheelchairs, prosthetics and other specialized equipment

Use of Kordsa’s prepregs gave the part producers exact control on the resin fiber ratio and design parameters. Customers of Kordsa benefit from their strong experience in the formulation of resin systems, weaving abilities and coating experience of it to achieve the maximum part performance, quality objectives and production rate.

Kordsa prepregs gives sport and leisure products much desired cosmetic carbon look, structural strength and high fatigue resistance. Kordsa also develops prepreg system with core as a package for the needs of sports and leisure.

Visual, Fast Cure, Class A Surface, Press Cure

Kordsa developed CM10 and CM11, fast curing visual prepregs for press curing for the needs of cosmetic parts and their short curing cycle and hot de-moldable nature are especially optimized for mass production. CM10 is Low Tg version of CM11, CM11 is Mid Tg. New resin systems not only cures under 3 minutes at 150°C at press under isothermal curing conditions but also hot de-moldable and long out-life of two weeks at ambient temperature. These extreme conditions does not affect the visual performance of prepreg system with CM10 and CM11, capable of Class A Surface. Drapability is suitable for press molds and low to medium tack optimized for press curing.

Long Out Life, Fast Cure Structural, Press Cure

OM14, a fast curing structural prepreg for press curing. Its short curing cycle and hot de-moldable nature are especially optimized for mass production with the addition of exceptionally long out life at room temperature. OM14 eliminates the need of Autoclave and cold storage plus it is especially optimized for mass production. New resin system not only cures under 1-2 minutes at 150°C at press under isothermal curing conditions but also hot de-moldable and long out-life of one year at ambient temperature.

Highly Toughened, Structural, Press and Autoclave Cure

OM10 and OM13 are highly toughened structural prepreg for press and autoclave curing for the needs of structural parts. OM10 is low Tg and OM13 is Mid Tg.

OM10 and OM13 cures at both press and Autoclave with long out-life of 4 weeks at ambient temperature.

EF10, EF11 and EF13 are also highly toughened High Tg prepregs can be cured with autoclave and used in extreme applications.

Highly Toughened, Structural, Oven Cure

OM12, a resin structural prepreg that specifically customized for oven curing for the needs of structural parts. OM12 eliminates the need of Autoclave and Press.

Highly Toughened, Fatigue Resistant, Structural, Press and Autoclave cure Cure

OM11, a resin structural prepreg that specifically customized for fatigue resistance part production. OM12 can be curable with Autoclave and Press.
