Product Description
Menzolit® SMC 0170 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® SMC 0170 is a general purpose SMC for applications in the field of electrical industry. Typical applications are housings, covers, wire distribution boxes and metering cabinets. The material meets the demands of DIN 16913 and is classified as type 832 (832.5) regarding mechanical properties. The flammability meets the demands of standard UL 94 category HB. The glass content is on a level that combines good mouldability with good mechanical properties regarding strength and stiffness.
