Sheet molding compound, or SMC, is fiber reinforced thermoset materials which are used in areas where higher mechanical strength is required. SMC processing is typically carried out by compression or injection molding technique. SMC is manufactured in the form a flexible sheet material made out of a combination of long fiber strands, liquid thermosetting resins, and mineral fillers.
Bulk Molding Compound or BMC, on the other hand, is a combination of short fiber strands, mineral fillers, and liquid thermosetting resin. BMC compounds are exhibit excellent flow characteristics, flame resistance, and dielectric properties. This enables them for applications where high performance is required.
