In recent years, novel SMC materials based on carbon fiber have become commercially available and are now applied at full industrial scale to produce ultra-light structural parts that outperform their equivalents in aluminum and steel. Combining a unique Daron® resin from AOC with carbon fibers into SMC enables the reliable manufacture of components with superior mechanical strength, low density, E-coat capability and low emissions, while maintaining the design flexibility typical for composites. This project has been nominated for the Advanced Manufacturing Award at the show.
