TCS resin system achieves major 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 –  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 are said to offer substantial benefits over many other traditional materials seen within the market, the company explains.

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

“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. The company is an advanced composite solutions company focusing on providing its customers and partners with market development, technical and engineering support along with optimised products within the advanced resin, adhesives, fibre and prepreg markets.
