X4-160 Prepreg Resin System Achieves Major Automotive OEM Environmental Accreditation


X4-160 high performance resin system offered by Total Composite Solutions (TCS), manufactured in Italy by Microtex, has exceeded the requirements of test standards PV1200, PV1300 and PV1300 2, often considered as some of the most stringent environmental simulations standards within the Automotive sector.

X4-160 is a high TG (160°C) clear cosmetic prepreg system widely used within the sector for both interior and exterior carbon parts, where the clarity and TG offer substantial benefits over many other traditional materials seen within the market.

Further details are set out in this data sheet.

Andrew Pointon, Managing Director of TCS, states, “The approval for X4 is further validation of the company’s ongoing innovation and development strategy,and clearly demonstrates the product quality.

These materials have gained strong traction within the sector due to the clarity and high TG, giving flexibility of design application both internally and externally within the vehicle. In addition, the unique curing system, which excludes powders widely used within competitive products, eliminates white wash and white spot faults greatly reducing manufacturing scrap rates of cured parts.”

TCS offers a wide range of Automotive Prepreg systems and full support solutions, including X4-160 from UK stock.
