  6. T12.01: Thin-Ply Composite Technology and Applications

    Release Date: 02-05-2019Open Date: 02-05-2019Due Date: 03-29-2019Close Date: 03-29-2019

    The use of thin-ply composites is one area of composites technology that has not yet been fully explored or exploited. Thin-ply composites are those with cured ply thicknesses below 0.0025 in., and commercially available prepregs are now available with ply thicknesses as thin as 0.00075 in. By comparison, a standard-ply-thickness composite would have a cured ply thickness of approximately 0.0055 i ...
