  • Publication number: 20210292545
    Abstract: The invention provides a prepreg having high storage stability and serving suitably for producing components, such as structural members and interior members of aircraft and structural members of aircraft engines, that require high heat resistance under high temperature and high humidity conditions, where the prepreg exhibits good physical properties and good combustion properties. The prepreg is produced by impregnating component [A] with an epoxy resin composition containing components [B] to [D], wherein component [A] in the prepreg accounts for 50 mass % or more, where [A] is a carbon fiber, [B] is an epoxy resin, [C] is a fluorene type curing agent having a maximum particle size of 100 ?m or less, and [D] is a thermoplastic resin.

  • Publication number: 20210115208
    Abstract: Provided is a prepreg including the following constituents [A] to [C], the prepreg satisfying the following conditions [I] to [III]: [A]: a sizing agent-coated carbon fiber; [B]: an epoxy resin having a specific structure; and [C]: a hardener for [B], [I]: an epoxy resin composition including the constituents [B] and [C] has a nematic-isotropic phase transition temperature in a temperature range of 130° C. to 180° C.; [II] a prepreg after isothermal holding at 100° C. for 30 minutes does not have a high-order structure originated from a diffraction angle of 2?=1.0° to 6.0° measured by wide angle X-ray diffraction at 100° C.; and [III]: a prepreg after isothermal holding at 180° C. for 2 hours has a high-order structure originated from the diffraction angle of 2?=1.0° to 6.0° measured by wide angle X-ray diffraction at 180° C.
