Compoflex® RF 3
Compoflex® RF 3 is a peel ply, release film and flow mesh, used to control flow rate, distribute resin and release consumables from a composite laminate.
Compoflex® RF 3 generates a very smooth surface ideal for painting of the composite laminate. For secondary bonding we recommend Compoflex® SB. Release film perforation style: Medium bleed characteristics.
Compoflex® RF 3 is designed to efficiently distribute resin with limited waste due to the low profile and tight construction. Works well with polyester, vinylester, epoxy, phenolic and other types of resin.

Recommended max. working temperature is 144°C (293°F). The melting point for polypropylene is 165°C (329°F). However, it is possible to use Compoflex® at 200°C (392°F) due to the fact that Compoflex® performs before the temperature exceeds the melting point. After cooling, the material becomes stable again, and peeling is just as easy as normal. We recommend conducting a test on a small part first.
