SMC -The main process for molding SMC material is Compression molding. The film is stripped off and the material is cut into suitable pieces. These are collated into piles of material, which are called the charge. This is positioning in the mould tool. Heated moulds are used and a compression pressure is applied. The base resin being a thermosetting material cures and hardens. The part is ejected. Any flash is trimmed by the operator.

SMC process: Manufacture of SMC is a continuous in-line process. The material is sheathed both top and bottom with a plastic film. A Paste is prepared comprising resin, styrene, heat activating catalysts, inert fillers, release agents and thickeners The paste is spread uniformly onto the bottom film. Chopped glass fibres are randomly deposited onto the paste. The top film is introduced and the sandwich is rolled into a pre-determined thickness. The sheet is allowed to mature for 48 hours.

DMC And SMC Moulding Materials

The materials are widely known as Dough or Bulk Moulding Compounds (DMC or BMC). In sheet form they are known as Sheet Moulding Compound (SMC).

Raw Materials Used
Both DMC and SMC use similar raw materials.
Ingredient Description
Synthetic Resin Liquid thermosetting plastic
Organic Peroxide Catalyst
Pigments Self Colour
Stearate Internal Mould Release Agent
Inorganic Fillers Calcium carbonates to increase stiffness, reduce cost
Glass Fibre To provide mechanical strength
Base Resins DMC (BMC) and SMC materials are available in various grades and types. Three base resin systems are in common use.
Orthophthalic Generally used for lower cost and lower performance applications.
Isophthalic Has good heat, chemical and toughness properties
Maleic Used to provide superior surface finishes.
Common applications for SMC machines
Automotive interior and exterior parts like this Sports car with detachable capping moulded in SMC composite material. benefits:

* High level of parts integration
* Significantly lighter than steel
* Good design aesthetics

OUTDOOR LIGHTING -SMC machinery is used to mould street light canopies, flood lighting and fluorescent housings. It's *Maintenance free *High Strength
Heat resistance *Corrosion resistance
High reflectivity * Dimensional accuracy
with Excellent insulating properties
*Corrosion resistant (no rust spots)
*Self colored SMC =no painting
*Parts consolidation eliminating sub assembly
*Easily cleaned
* Recycling aided by ease of disassembly
A variety of self colored and granite effect compounds are available for moulding kitchen sinks and solid surface worktops.
Tough, hard wearing surfaces that are resistant to heat and impact, particularly when used in conjunction with a PIMC (Powder In Mould Coating).
Stain and scratch resistant *Solid colors *Infinite design flexibility
SMC is widely used in many countries for permanent / semi permanent road barriers. It's Light weight, easily transported and installed while being Tough, durable and maintenance free.  *Filled on site with water / sand / concrete
*Junction boxes / inspection chambers SMC has long been used to mould underground chambers as a convenient alternative to preformed concrete or brick construction.
Water resistant grades of SMC are available for a variety of applications needing *High strength (no need for steel support), All weather benefits like No corrosion, painting or maintenance
. SMC parts are Corrosion resistant
*Self colored *Non spreading *Theft resistant as in Zero scrap value
The high dimensional accuracy and parts consolidation capabilities of DMC and SMC moldings are utilized in business machine bases and frames.

How The Materials Are Molded
--Two basic moulding processes are used to mould DMC, Compression Moulding and Injection Moulding. Smaller components are usually made by the injection
moulding process. Larger components being compression (or transfer) moulded. In Injection moulding the material is loaded into the barrel of the machine. A stuffer plunger forces the material into the screw area of the machine. The screw and barrel are heated to pre-warm the material. The material flows into the mould via runners. The moulds are heated which cures the resin content and hardens the now moulded part. When Compression moulded, the operator pre-weighs a charge of material and places it into the open mould. The heated mould and pressure flows the material into the cavity. The heat cures the resin, which hardens the moulded part. A derivative of compression moulding is Transfer moulding. The charge of material is placed in a chamber within the tool. The mould is closed and a ram acts on the chamber forcing the material to flow via runners to the cavity of the tool.


DMC & SMC components are hard, rigid mouldings with excellent electrical resistance properties. They have replaced glass and ceramics for insulating applications. The manufacture of large flat panel type mouldings, with excellent strength, are used for commercial vehicle body parts.
