DA 4090 | DA 4092 are modified epoxy pre-impregnated systems
DA 4090 | DA 4092 are modified epoxy pre-impregnated systems which can cure at 250°F (121°C) for one hour. DA 4090 | DA 4092 can be supplied on any commercially available glass, Kevlar, or graphite fabric. DA 4090 is a one sided pre-impregnated fabric yielding a single sided tack material. DA 4092 is the same system where both sides of the fabric are pre-impregnated yielding a double sided tack material. Both prepreg systems can be used for laminating and honeycomb sandwich construction.
Resin Content: Nominal 50% on 7781 glass, material can be supplied at other resin contents as required
Volatiles: Less than 1%
Separator: Release paper and poly film
Shelf Life: One year at 0°F
Six months at 40°F
Thirty Days at 72°F
Standard Roll: Widths up to 60 inches wide available
Based upon 0.125 inch thick cured laminate consisting of DA 4090 on 7781 glass cloth cured at 250°F (121°C) for one hour.

Store DA 4090 | DA 4092 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. If details are cut and replaced into cold storage, shorter stabilization times may be used. 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. Debulking is recommended after every 5 – 20 plies. The material may be debulked at temperatures up to 120° F. 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 250°F.
The DA 4090 | DA 4092 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.
This DA 4090 | DA 4092 material contains epoxy resins and amines which may cause irritation to sensitive skin. Avoid contact with eyes or skin. If contact with skin occurs, wash as soon as possible with soap and water. If contact with eyes occurs, flush with water for 15 minutes.
