CSP won the award for the development and commercialization of CSP 834UV SMC which utilizes Chromaflo’s UVSolutions® and Accumag technologies. The first commercial application of CSP 834UV SMC is the 2017 Honda Ridgeline unpainted composite truck bed.
“Chromaflo is honored to have played a role in CSP’s material innovation,” stated Paul Rettinger, Technology Manager for Thermosets Americas. “This is the first commercial application of a new class of material that represents a lighter, stronger, more durable alternative to other materials, such as painted metal and thermoplastics. We have spent over twenty years developing and refining our UVSolutions® technology and are proud to see it move the automotive composites market forward.”
Chromaflo’s UVSolutions technology is used in many molded polyester composite applications to maximize outdoor weatherability. A total system approach is used to deliver the best weathering performance in fiber reinforced plastics.
