DA 4080 and DA 4082 are 200°F cure modified epoxy prepreg systems

DA 4080 and DA 4082 are 200°F cure modified epoxy prepreg systems which can be prepreged on fiberglass fabric, woven Kevlar, or other woven fabrics. In addition to their low temperature cure capabilities, DA 4080 prepregs have excellent flow to allow for vacuum bag cure conditions. DA 4080 is a one sided pre-impregnated system yielding a single sided tack material. DA 4082 is the same system except that both sides of the fabric are coated yielding a double sided tack material. Both prepregs can be used for laminating and honeycomb sandwich construction.

Based upon a 0.125 inch thick cured laminate of DA 4080 prepreg containing 7781 glass at a 38% resin content. Laminates were cured at 200°F (93.3°C) for one hour at 20 psi.

Tensile Strength 50,000 psi

Tensile Modulus 3.2 X 106 psi

Flexural Strength 75,000 psi

Flexural Modulus 3.2 X 106 psi

Compressive Strength 55,000 psi

Short Beam Shear 9,000 psi


Store material in a contaminate free container and store at O degrees F for extended storage. For shorter storage time requirements store at 40 degrees F, this enables quicker stabilization times.


Remove material from cold storage at least 20 hours prior to use to allow for stabilization at room temperature. Keep the material wrapped to prevent moisture from condensing on the adhesive. Cut the prepreg to size, remove the poly separator and apply to part or mold. Remove separator paper. Continue process until the desired number of plies are obtained. When lay-up is complete, the prepreg can be cured in a vacuum bag in an oven or autoclave. Apply at least 10 psi pressure and cure for one hour at 200°F.


The adhesive can be removed from non-bonding areas with ketones or methylene chloride. Be sure to follow all Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) guidelines for the solvent to be used.
