Gurit Cosmetic Carbon Prepregs Qualified by Major Car Manufacturers

02 February 2016

Gurit’s SC 110 and SC 160 visual carbon prepregs have been qualified by two new major car manufacturers.

According to Gurit, both products passed the respective environmental OEM tests successfully showing excellent product properties and surface quality. The materials are now being used by car manufacturers’ tier-1 suppliers for exterior and interior visual carbon programs.

Gurit says it’s visual carbon prepregs are characterised by clarity, faster manufacturing times and a patented resin system which allows for the production of white spot-free parts. This enables increased production output as well as a major reduction in scrapped parts when compared to current materials on the market. In addition, SC 160 allows for paint processes at elevated temperatures.
