Product Description
Menzolit® BMC 1650 is a bulk moulding compound based on unsaturated polyester resin. The product is glass fibre reinforced and contains mineral fillers. In case of fire the product doesn't melt, neither does it form droplets nor is smoke generation excessive. The material is injection moulded in heated steel moulds. It is recommended to work with chrome plated tools. The product contains no halogens nor any heavy metals.

Menzolit® BMC 1650 is a specially designed anti-microbial polyester moulding compound which incorporates a "germ killer". It has been tested and found to be compliant for resistance to fungal defacement in accordance with the Standard test method BS EN ISO 846:1997. "Plastics - Evaluation of the Action of Microorganisms", and for resistance to bacterial defacement in accordance with the Standard test method "JIS Z 2801:2000. "Antimicrobial products - Test for antimicrobial activity and efficacy".AP61. Specific applications are parts within health care or sanitary equipment or furnituresThe glass content is on a level that combines good mould ability with good strength and stiffness properties. The compound is available in a varity of sanitary colours, for availability please contact your local menzolit team.
