Non-woven glass fiber prepreg basically finds application in aerospace and industrial sector wherein the wind energy in industrial sector consumes prepreg mostly. The global non-woven glass fiber prepreg is expected to grow relatively at a high growth rate with the increased growth in the end use industries.
Non-woven is a technology which involves processes other than knitting and weaving. The process starts with the formation of fibre web and followed by subsequent bonding of these webs with the reinforcing chemicals. The fibres mostly used can carbon, glass, aramid etc. The process of bonding these reinforced fibres with a matrix of resin is called as impregnation and the combination of reinforcing fibre and resin matrix is called as prepreg.
Thus, non-woven glass fibre prepreg is a strong composite material with exceptional mechanical properties. The resins (matrix) used in the prepreg depend on the ultimate applications and properties required in the composite material. They can thermoplastics or thermosetting type of resins.
The mostly used thermosetting matrix are of epoxy, phenolic and bismaleimide. For instance, in aero engines excellent resistance high temperature is an essential criteria for which bismaleimidematrix is used. For fire resistance phenolic are used whereas for excellent mechanical properties epoxy type are used.
