Product Description
Menzolit® AdvancedSMC 0400 is a special low profile SMC for applications within the automotive industry. It satisfies the surface quality needed for automotive body panels. It complies with all automotive regulations, C-Emissions are minimized. To achieve the highest surface quality, we recommend that tool surfaces are mirror polished. The temperature resistance of AdvancedSMC allows online painting at standard bake temperatures. The product shows very good adhesion to paint or In Mould Coating (IMC). Because of its zero shrink properties, warpage is eliminated and parts reproducing the dimensions of the cold mould can be produced. Figures given apply to a quasi isotropic 6-layer [0/90/45/-45/90/0] design, different layer designs are possible, please contact our R&D departement. Please check storage conditions printed on packaging label.
