Standard Test Method for Gel Time of Carbon Fiber-Epoxy Prepreg
|Publication Date:||1 May 2012|
|ICS Code (Reinforced plastics):||83.120|
This test method covers the determination of gel time of carbon fiber-epoxy tape and sheet. The test method is suitable for the measurement of gel time of resin systems having either high or low viscosity.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
Within the text, inch-pound units are shown in brackets.
