Abstract:

The fabrication, molding characteristics, design features, and finished material properties of sheet molding compounds SMC and bulk molding compounds BMC are the basic elements treated in the handbook. Perform molding, which is steadily being replaced by more efficient SMC systems, is also considered as it produces parts with somewhat higher mechanical properties. The preimpregnated roving compounds, representing a minor segment of the reinforced plastics, are of significance in military applications. These compounds have been used to attain superior mechanical properties and are a convenient means for combining specific reinforcements and resins. Their preparation and properties therefore are included.
