Prepreg Layup Fundamentals

Prepreg materials can be used to make some of the highest quality components but this can only be done if the fundamental techniques are understood properly.

This Prepreg Layup Fundamentals training course teaches the basic hand skills needed to manipulate prepregs into an array of shapes.

This course is primarily aimed at technicians and operators from those new to composites but can also be for:

  • Direct line managers
  • Manufacturing / Production Engineers
  • Design Engineers
  • Senior Managers
  • Experienced technicians converting to prepreg layup

This course covers:

  • What a prepreg is
  • Materials that are typically used
  • Layup environments
  • Storage, kitting and labelling of prepregs
  • Prepreg bagging schemes and consumables
  • Basic ply layup
  • Shearing / manipulating techniques

Students should have a basic understanding of what a composite is but some of this will be reinforced on this course. 

This is a practical course so should be happy working within a workshop environment and with a basic understanding of simple hand tools.

We can deliver this at your facility for £460 per person up to 10 people per group*. We can also deliver this at a local venue near you for a small additional price.

The course is two days (0900 - 1630) with some theory but as much practical as possible.

*minimum of 4 people required

Once you have got a grip of the basics, you can look into going on to a prepreg practitioner course to further develop your techniques. While this course isn't live yet, get in touch to discuss having a bespoke course arranged for you.

Alternatively, have a look at some of the alternative manufacturing techniques to allow you to manufacture composites with a range of different skills.

We can also create bespoke courses based on your individual needs and / or components. Get in touch with us to see what we can do.
