The Composites Group has introduced PremierLT, a new family of lightweight, low-density, high-performance thermoset sheet molding compounds (SMC).                                  

The Composites Group explains PremierLT L701S is one of the initial PremierLT products. The company says it has a specific gravity of 1.2 along with excellent mouldability. It is pigmentable and offers low shrink, making it suitable for a wide range of applications where performance and aesthetics are important. TCG’s Quantum Compositesbusiness unit will manufacture PremierLT L701S.

The Composites Group claim PremierLT L702S also offers superior strength and mouldability with a specific gravity of 1.5. PremierLT L702S is manufactured by TCG’s Premix compounding business unit. It states it delivers excellent flexural strength and toughness, and accepts automotive primers and powder in-mould coatings, making it suited for demanding structural and semi-structural applications in the transportation industry.

“Lightweighting is a driving dynamic for manufacturers today and a high priority for our product development efforts,” said Marc Imbrogno, Corporate Director of Market/Product Development. “We’re introducing our PremierLT family with two low-density product lines and will be adding more.

“Our PremierLT product line uses different chemistries to achieve the desired weight reduction, providing great diversity of choice for customers. In the coming months, we expect to announce two additions to the PremierLT family, including a carbon fibre SMC,” said Imbrogno.

“Our goal is to offer a portfolio of lightweighting solutions with different cost and performance characteristics, so customers can choose the optimal value equation for their needs,” he added.
