The serial automotive market needs light-weight, low-temperature, press-curable materials to meet legislative requirements for lower emissions, high safety and end-of-life recycling.
Cytec MTM®23 is a significant development in the drive to deliver prepregs to this industry.

Reasons for choosing MTM23 hot-melt vinyl ester prepreg:
