SMC Composites

At SMC Composites we are experts in design engineering, formulating, compounding and molding thermoset composites; but above all to look after our customers and strive to make them successful.

M

Mission

Our mission is to serve customers in the Nafta countries (USA, Canada and Mexico) and in Central and South America.

C

Customer Commitment

You, our valued customers are unique, and likewise your needs. This is why SMC Composites will tailor design and manufacture the appropiate Thermoset Composite material for you.

Over 40 years of accumulated experience supporting the Thermoset Composites Industry with our technical and market experience. We serve our customers not only with the best compound formulation for their needs, but also we assist them with technical services in mold design, as well as compression, injection and transfer molding.

Molding Compounds For Different Applications

 

1

Sheet Molding Compounds

Also known as SMC, is a ready to mold flat laminate glass-fiber or carbon-fiber reinforced composite of polyester, vinyl ester or other unsaturated thermoset resins. It is typically compression molded  although there are presses that can also injection mold SMC.

 
2

Bulk Molding Compounds

Also known as BMC, is a ready to mold  glass-fiber or carbon-fiber reinforced composite of polyester, vinyl ester or other unsaturated thermoset resins. It typically comes in the form of bulk or extruded dough to use in both compression and injection molding.
 
3

Thick Molding Compounds

To make this molding compounds the Roving fibers are chopped and impregnated individually, then collected in a laminated form. The product looks almost exactly like Sheet Molding Compound although thicker. In Europe it is known as Continuous Impregnated Compound (CIC).
