Our pre-preg starter kit gives first timers or experienced composite users the opportunity to create oven cure carbon fibre pre preg parts out of autoclave without breaking the bank. Our kit pulls together the essentials that you will require to complete your first pre-preg project once you have a suitable mould to laminate.

Pre-preg carbon fibre is the industry standard for the manufacture of high quality, strong, light and consistent parts as you would we see in the top levels of motorsport and various other arenas. Careful impregnation of the carbon fibre cloth with precise levels of resin mean that resin is distributed evenly around the laminate helping to give consistent finish to components.

This kit includes our high quality UK made HQPP 245g surface ply and strong HQPP 650g bulking ply both in the traditional twill weave that we associate with carbon fibre. Bagging consumables, release films, breather cloths are all included in the kit to get you going.

Please look at our online guidance material on processing our material in our pre-preg guide which can be downloaded for easy reference.

Compatibility
Our range of oven cure pre-preg carbon fibre cloth is extremlely versatile in terms of cure cycle meaning it can be cured at anything between 65℃ and 120℃. We have seen instances on cooler cure cycles of DIY Eco Tool being used for the curing of our pre-pregs however we don't recommend this and instead we recommend either;
1.
DIY Epoxy Mould System (High Temp) 
2.
DIY HQPPT Carbon Fibre Pre-preg tooling
3. DIY EP700 Epoxy Model Board 
Whilst not sold by DIY Composites our pre-preg can also be sucessfully cured from flat glass sheet and alumimum billet moulds.

I don't have an oven to cure this?
Why not join one of our twice monthly open cure sessions where we allow materials purchased through DIY Composites to be processed via our ovens or autoclave for a small fee dependant on project size. If your project is one off it avoids the need to buy equipment you may not use again.  Click the link to find out more.
