Product Description
Menzolit® BMC 2310 is a bulk moulding compound based on unsaturated polyester resin. The product is reinforced with syntetic fibres 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 2310 is a chemically resistant grade reinforced with special fibres. Being completely glass-free (no glass fibre reinforcement) it is specifically recommended for the manufacture of high voltage switchgear where SF6 is used to quench the arc. The specific fibre used is not affected by SF6 gas whereas glass fibre may erode away.
