Prepregs for rolling stock

Hexcel products have long been used in the production of interior components, such as phenolic prepregs. Hexcel was a pioneer in the development of rolling stock structures such as complete drivers' cabs with individually-designed epoxy prepregs, which were specially adapted to the manufacture of large components.

In the recent past, Hexcel has deployed carbon-fibre reinforced prepregs (CFRP) in the railway industry to allow for significant weight savings – a major contribution in projects such as the AGV towards higher speeds along with lower power consumption.
