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

Gurit`s visual carbon prepregs feature 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, the company says.
