Product Description
Menzolit® CarbonSMC 1100 is a developmental carbon fibre SMC for high strength applications. The reinforcement has been put to a level that combines mouldability with high strength and stiffness properties. The specific resin and a high amount of carbon fibers provide high mechanical strength. Durability is improved as well. Even without a specific fire retardant, the fire retardancy level HB according UL 94 is achieved. Typical applictions are structural components within the automotive industry or mechanical engineering. It is suitable for load carrying applications or fast moving and accelerated components.
