SMC Mold material is a fiber-reinforced thermosetting material. The glass reinforcement is between 10% and 60%, and the length of the glass fiber is slightly longer than that of the bulk molding compound. The sheet molding compound is a preformed mixture containing polymer resins, inert fillers, fiber reinforcements, catalysts, pigments and stabilizers, release agents and thickeners, long fibers and resins are combined, and the resin is in the form of a paste Spread on the film; next, chop the fibers and add to the paste. Then squeeze between the two films; compact until the desired thickness and texture is reached. This process can produce strong, economical SMC materials. It should be noted that the material is not fully cured during storage. When heat and pressure are applied to it, the final curing will proceed in the SMC mold, resulting in everything from simple designs to complex parts.
The advantages of SMC are lightweight and high strength. Therefore, SMC has replaced metal parts as the main material for many Automotive Molds and can resist impact even at high speeds. It has also been used in the manufacture of bathroom products, electronic components, industrial fields, etc. It is easy to produce and can be produced in large quantities. Combining the simple characteristics of the compression molding process and the short production cycle, parts made by SMC can be mass-produced in a short time. Economically, from labor costs to material loss, manufacturers can save costs in all aspects of the production process. Heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant, it can be used in composite materials for sanitary ware, cookware, utensils, and indirect food contact applications. Electrical insulator and flame retardant.
