Gurit Enlarges Automotive Product Range

13 December 2016

Recently launched, the Gurit Smartcure epoxy prepreg press moulding system has been specifically designed to meet the high-quality volume manu­facturing needs of the automotive industry.

Dedicated to speeding up production processes while ensuring constant part quality, Gurit says the 5-minute curing prepreg allows for automated lay-up, pre-forming at room temperature and rapid hot-in hot-out production methods at high service temperatures. Gurit Smartcure is designed to suit a wide range of structural and non-structural applications and has successfully been beta-tested by various car manufacturers and tier-1 suppliers.

Gurit Prime 180 is the second new automotive product that has been introduced. Gurit Prime 180 is described as a two-component low pressure RTM system designed to achieve high temperature performance and good surface clarity for structural and aesthetic applications. The resin system`s low ambient viscosity and wide injection window allow for quick fill times resulting in fast processing cycles and increased productivity.
