Graytone is delighted to announce that PSG has entered into a distribution agreement with Gurit (www.gurit.com) to distribute Gurit’s range of industry leading aerospace prepregs.

With over 30 years’ experience in the practical application of composites across various market sectors, combined with an impressive portfolio of materials and a unique technical approach, Gurit offers the most complete composite solution on the market.

One of Gurit’s primary product categories for the aerospace sector is prepreg, which is an engineered material combining fibres and resin matrices in an easy-to-apply material. These aerospace-qualified materials are highly suitable for many interior and structural applications, demonstrating a unique combination of properties combining excellent mechanical performance and the fulfilment of the highest international JAR/FAR fire protection regulations regarding fire, smoke, toxicity (FST) and heat release.

Graytone’s Business Development Director, John Keating, has been working closely with Gurit on the agreement, resulting in PSG assuming responsibility for the supply chain of Gurit’s prepregs to a number of customers throughout Europe. As a first step, PSG will be contacting these customers to identify their ongoing requirements for PSG to establish a stockholding of Gurit’s products at its UK base. This will enable the immediate shipment of a range of Gurit’s materials anywhere in Europe, significantly  reducing lead-times and improving service to Gurit’s customer base.

Steve Rice, PSG’s General Manager said “This is a significant step forward for PSG that allows us to build on our excellent reputation for technical support and customer service and we’re very excited to be working with Gurit, a company with an excellent product range and great reputation”.
