BMC (Bulk Moulding Compound)

BMC (Bulk Moulding Compound) is a dough-like mass placed in the mould. This mass consists of glass fibres (about 6 mm long), fillers and resin. BMC is largely similar to SMC. The difference between BMC and SMC concerns the raw material. BMC is relatively short-fibre compared to SMC. So for large areas, this technique is not suitable. Furthermore, the raw material is more difficult to handle than SMC.
