Simon has the low 65'c cure. Minimum buy 10m and it does need a freezer.
One of my mates uses it to make race bike parts. He has never used epoxy or layer up one part.
He went straight to pre-preg and I was impressed how easy and good his parts are.
From very simple crappy moulds just made from Kevlar lay up , over a plastic cover for example. Just places the preg in the moulds , bag's them down with only peel and a little breather.
He made a timber and roofing tin oven with 2 bathroom heat lamps and a controller. Sets it to 85'c and walks away. Following day pulls out a great looking part.
He does clear coat them for better glossy Finnish. That resin content preg doesn't come out ultra glossy , you need a higher one for that.
Doing a core with pre preg would be very cool. . One day I'd love to go down that path.. I think the biggest problem is the paint side of things.
