В180 is a prepreg based on epoxy resin and reinforcing filler (unidirectional tapes or fabrics of various weaving) for producing details with operating temperatures up to 150°C. Out-of-autoclave prepreg technology has the most advantages of autoclave. The autoclave is not required for processing the prepreg B180. Curing takes place in a vacuum bag, with the technology of the package laminating slightly different from the vacuum infusion. It shows the following features and properties:
Water absorption cwater
4.17 % at 20 °C

Fracture toughness KIC
1.88 MPa·√m at 20 °C
Strain energy release GIC
Tensile strength Rm
94 MPa at 20 °C
