Also discussed was work co-molding carbon/epoxy SMC with true carbon/epoxy prepreg, either using SMC as the core between prepreg skins or vice versa.
All aluminum sheets, needed for the process, have to pass through the trimming, pre-treatment and the application of the primer before getting lay ed up into the mould together with the prepreg.
Hence, an additional resin, in principle identical to the prepreg resin (hence the name "same qualified") is injected through cavities strategically positioned around the perimeter of the mold in order to apply a sufficient by large hydrostatic pressure during the curing stage (Fig.
UKPRwire, Fri Aug 19 2016] The key drivers of prepreg in aerospace & defense industry are the global increase in the number of airplane deliveries in the near future, high performance properties such as light weight, excellent safety & acoustic features, and government regulations.

Lengsfeld and coauthors provide an overview of using prepreg technology to manufacture structural carbon fiber/plastic components, a process that began during the early 1970s.
Prepreg has a high strength-to-weight ratio, high resistance to corrosion and fatigue, and fire resistance; therefore, it is favored by manufacturers over its metallic counterparts for use in commercial and industrial applications.
Prepreg windows need to be sized and tooled, as do the flexible coverlayers and bond plies.
Manual operations can for example be found in material handling, when picking prepreg plies from a cutter table and stacking them to form a plane laminate in preparation for a subsequent forming operation.
