A Quick Test

I did a quick test of the prepreg curing process by wrapping a test joint. I found out that 150g/m^2 uni-directional carbon prepreg is very sticky and hard to work with by hand with gloves on. The fibers come apart very easily. I quickly determined that I need small tools to carefully push and lay the fibers neatly.

A good example of how not to do it...
