Why Norplex-Micarta prepreg?
There is more than one approach to manufacturing prepreg materials. Norplex-Micarta’s approach has been refined for high volume, cost-effective production over 100 years. The same fundamental approach that is used to manufacture materials for sensitive electronics and consumer volume decorative laminate is employed by Norplex-Micarta.
Not only is this approach geared for mass production, it allows a wider range of materials to be impregnated. Natural fiber reinforcements, thermoplastics and other synthetic fibers, carbon, glass, and even hybrids of these reinforcements are all possible. Furthermore, very heavy or thick reinforcements can be effectively processed which improve throughput of the entire supply chain.
Norplex-Micarta has dedicated application and material development engineers to support material selection, application development, prototyping, and customization to support designers and engineers.
