Sheet Molding Compound

905A-AB

905A-AB SMC FOR VINYL ESTER & POLYESTER

High-performance for fast wet through and good density. 905A-AB is a reinforcement for Sheet Molding Compound (SMC), which offers improved processing over conventional products in vinyl ester resins and where fast wet through and good sheet density are required.

Performance Attributes

EXCELLENT PROCESSABILITY
GREAT MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AND CLASS A AUTO SURFACE
ENHANCED SERVICE LIFE
  • Excellent Processability

    Good impregnation and wet-through characteristics enable 10-65% glass loading, easy unwinding and chopping, flat lay-down & uniform dispersion with low fuzz and static.

  • Great Mechanical Properties and Class A Auto Surface

    Good product flow within mold, along with desirable wet-through characteristics allow lower sheet density and low sheet squeeze out, resulting in complex decorative contours, excellent mechanical properties, a Class A automotive surface and high stiffness in the final part.

  • Enhanced Service Life

    Advantex® glass helps fight corrosion, enhancing service life compared to standard E-glass.

Packaging & Labeling (Standard Reference)

Each bobbin is protected by a plastic film (Tack-Pak®). Please do not remove film during use. Creel-Pak® packaging is available upon request.

Each bobbin has a self-adhesive identification label, showing the product reference and the production date. Each pallet has at least one identification label detailing the product reference, pallet net and gross weights, production date and pallet production code. The packaging system is designed to allow short term stacking of two pallets. When stacking two high, care should be taken to correctly and smoothly place the top pallet. It is recommended to use a plywood plate between the two pallets in order not to damage the lower pallet.

Storage

It is generally recommended to store glass fiber products in original packaging in a cool dry area, preferably 60°F-80°F with relative humidity between 35% and 75%. Under such conditions, the 905A-AB roving can be used up to 2 years from the date of manufacture. After 2 years, it is recommended to check product quality before use. The packaging system is designed to allow short term stacking of two pallets (maximum). When stacking two high, care should be taken to correctly and smoothly place the top pallet. It is recommended to use a plywood plate between the two pallets in order not to damage the lower pallet.
