Ply thickness

There is evidence that ply thickness can affect composite performance and this is of interest to us here at Triple H as SK make extremely good quality, very uniform prepreg down to 20gsm at 1 metre wide. We always have 30gsm and 50gsm in stock. SK and ourselves are currently sponsoring academic research to help clarify the benefits of thin plies. Thin plies have many applications where they can add strength with minimal weight whether it be high performance sports equipment or high speed rotors.


Did we mention fabric?

We now have have fabric prepreg in stock. 1k and 3k plain weave and 2 x 2 twill. Available in 50m rolls or shorter lengths for trialling. We also have  dry fabric 3k plain weave and twill for immediate delivery.
