Product Description
Menzolit® HPC 1200 is a sheet 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 compression moulded in heated steel moulds. It is recommended to work with chrome plated tools. The product contains no halogens.

Menzolit® HPC 1200 is a special SMC for high strength applications. The glass level has been selected to combine mouldability with high strength and stiffness properties in orientation direction. The reinforcement is composed of chopped, randomly distributed glass fibers and additional unchopped, continuous and lengthwise oriented glass fibers. This results in high strength and stiffness along with the unidirectional fibers. The flowability in orientation direction is reduced. This orientation influences flow during moulding and the anisotropic material properties have to be kept in mind during part design and part moulding. Typical applications are load bearing components, for instance bumpers and power train substructures.
