3M Prepreg featuring
3M Matrix Resins
Bending the rules for prepreg composites
3M™ Prepreg with 3M™ Matrix Resin technology feature revolutionary proprietary resin
systems containing nano-sized spheres of silica, so small, they are able to
flow between individual filaments of carbon fiber, creating a matrix of
strength throughout the entire composite. The resulting material is not only
incredibly strong and durable, but also lighter in weight and more responsive.

25% Greater Compression Strength
Compared to traditional prepreg laminates, 3M™ Prepregs deliver substantially improved resistance to micro-buckling in your finished composites.
68% Harder and More Durable
Harder composite materials are more resistant to scratches, scuffs and other damage,
resulting in higher quality, longer-lasting aesthetics in your finished parts.
40% Lower Exotherm Properties
Create thicker composite materials with higher efficiency in your cure cycles.
44% Less Shrinkage During Cure
Reduce residual stress, distortion and warpage in your finished composite materials.
24% Less Moisture Absorption in Wet Applications
Weight gain is kept to a minimum.
