Product Description
Menzolit® BMC 2900 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 2900 is a specially designed BMC to meet the EC Safety Signs Directive (92/58/EEC) on the provision and use of safety signs at work. In areas where it is not possible to include the use of illuminated signs BMC 2900 moulds luminescent parts . Besides flat luminescent panels it is possible to mould three dimensional parts like safety helmets, escape way stairs or other safety and wrning items of luminescent properties . These are in addition to traditional signboards such as prohibition, warning signs as well as fire safety signs (ie signs for fire exits and fire-fighting equipment). The parts comply with DIN 67510 for safety applications.
