SMC - Sheet Molding Compound (Hot press molding pulp)
Glass fiber ratio of 10% - 50% can be produced in SMC hot molding pulp used in cases where there are needs such as large parts and high strength. Fiber lengths are longer (25mm) than BMC pulp.
The SMC production process is realized by obtaining pulp as a result of the paste-like polyester-based (Epoxy and vinylester-based SMC production is also possible) matrix compressed between two films, by clipping the roving glass fiber and dispersing it randomly, and compressing it in a sandwich structure.
SMC needs a ripening/thickening time immediately after pulp production. Both ripening and storage temperatures should be between 10 °C - 25 °C. Shelf life varies between 2 and 4 months, depending on the gas permeability of the film used in production. In addition, the shelf life of the product decreases at higher temperatures than the storage temperatures.
SMC fruit pulp, which is a fully integrated, ready-to-use molding composition that can be easily made into pulp, in which reinforcement materials, resin, filling materials, catalysts, mold release agents and other additives that extend the shelf life are combined, while it is designed by R&D, it is selected according to the desired ral code, inflammability class according to the product expectations. can be designed according to fiber ratio and UV resistance.
The obtained SMC Pestil is packaged in a way that it can be laid in boxes or wrapped in coils, depending on the demand.
We have the capacity to produce 2,000 tons of SMC pulp per month with 2 Schmidt Heinzmann SMC machines and automatic dosing system within our company.
