BMC Compression Molding for Composite Part Manufacturing

https://www.borflex-group.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/BMC.jpg

BMC compression moulding

Bulk Molding Compound

BMC Principle

BMC (Bulk Molding Compound) is a mixture of polyester resins, fillers and reinforcements in the form of cut fibers (e.g. 20% short glass fibers) and intended for mass production molding processes.
BMC is heavily loaded and reinforced with short fibers: the proportion of fiberglass varies from 10% to 30%, with a length between 6 mm and 12 mm.
The compound is hot molded (130-150°C) by injection (mainly) between the mold and the machined steel counter mold. The pressure (50 to 100 bar) at which the mould is closed causes the previously dosed material to creep and the cavity to be filled.
The very short curing time allows for quick release from the mould.

Advantages of the BMC

  • - Two smooth sides
  • - Complex shapes possible
  • - High moulding accuracy
  • - Low material cost
  • - High moulding rates
  • - Low impact of labour on part quality

SMC Compression Molding for Composite Part Manufacturing

SMC compression moulding

Sheet Moulding Compound

MSC Principle

SMC (Sheet Moulding Compound) is a semi-product composed of unsaturated polyester resin, fibreglass reinforcement and mineral fillers. Shaped by high-pressure casting, it can be used to manufacture parts in a wide range of industries. It is used for compression moulding (often larger parts with high mechanical strengths). It is a sheet made of thermosetting polyester resin that impregnates long glass fibers (20 to 30% of this reinforcement), including fillers and a catalyst (hardener). The mixture is ready for hot die casting (a press allows compression at a temperature between 140 and 160°C and a pressure ranging from 50 to 100 bar) in a closed mould.

Benefits of SMC

  • - Two smooth sides, ready to paint
  • - Large and complex shapes are possible
  • - High moulding accuracy and good material properties
  • - Reduced material costs
  • - Low labour share
  • - High production rates

RTM Low Pressure Injection Molding for Composite Part Manufacturing

https://www.borflex-group.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/rtm.jpg

RTM Low Pressure Injection Molding

Principle of the gtr

This process is called RTM (Resin Transfer Molding).

The reinforcement is placed in the gel-coated steel mold, which is then closed by the counter-mold into which the resin is injected under low pressure (about 5 bars).

The resin gradually impregnates the reinforcement. Polymerization then takes place without any external temperature input.

Benefits of the gtr

  • Nice looking parts
  • Sandwich structure parts
  • Flexibility of workshops (organisation, layout) and flexibility of production
  • Strongly limits VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
  • Limited tooling costs

Examples of composite products

- Gratings
- Pool liner
- Handrail
- Moulded parts
- Machined parts

- Roller shutter door
- Guardrail profiles
- Structural profiles
- Special profiles
- Standard profiles
