Prepreg materials from Advanced Composites Group (ACG) have been used by French automotive design and parts manufacturer Applications Composites to manufacture the driver’s shell of the Citroen Survolt.

According to ACG, their BPS240 composite body panel system was used to mould the central driver’s shell. ACG explained their BPS240 was specifically developed for the rapid processing of complex automotive parts as it creates curves and angular return features with a paint-ready finish directly from the mould and in their experience, reduced manufacturing times by up to 80% compared with traditional prepreg materials.

BPS240 is a ZPREG rapid deposition system with a stable, high temperature and integrated surface film capable of producing ‘Class A’ surfaces for both low and high bake paint systems.
