Toray Advanced Composites says that its TC346 prepreg resin system has now passed SFI 56.1 and UL94 V0 flame-retardancy tests.

According to the company, the resin system is a high-temperature epoxy system suitable for use in the automotive industry and motorsport applications, such as gearbox and suspension components, which require a high service temperature and high toughness.

‘We are extremely pleased that the TC346 resin system received these important flame-retardancy certifications,’ said Steven Mead, MD. ‘The distinction positions the TC346 system as the ‘go-to’ composite material that can help high-performance motorsports programs attain significant performance improvements.’
