Continuous Fiber Reinforced Fully Impregnated Polyamide-6 Prepregs


At Johns Manville, we have developed a continuous manufacturing process to produce fully impregnated polyamide-6 prepregs, by impregnating reinforcing fabrics with low viscosity caprolactam melt followed by in-situ polymerization. The resulting polyamide-6 prepregs have demonstrated superior mechanical properties, thanks to the complete impregnation and tailored fiber sizing chemistry. The patented manufacturing process enables the use of single layer of fabric and multi-layer of fabrics; therefore thin prepreg rolls and thick prepreg sheets can be produced. These fully impregnated polyamide-6 prepregs are suitable for the production of continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) composites, through a variety of processes such as thermoforming, overmolding, and compression molding. The manufacturing, composite properties, and potential applications of these fully impregnated polyamide-6 prepregs will be presented in this technical paper.
