Questions about Thermoset Composites?

Low Shrink Sheet Molding Compound

These SMC materials are designed to address electrical applications requiring a composite material that possesses a UL Yellow card and flammability performance. These products are available in a variety of reinforcement loading and range in flammability performance from UL94 HB to V-0 & 5VA. These materials can be found in IDI’s Underwriters Laboratory file E53587.

Please note: all of our materials are custom developed to meet your specific requirements, if you don't see a product performance metric that meets your needs, call us to discuss your specific project requirements at 317.773.1766 or email us at sales-usa@idicomposites.com.

The information on this sheet is a guide. The stated values reflect an average of several tests conducted on CI's goods. These values were obtained under ideal conditions and may not be replicated in any particular test, part, or application. Because the values achieved in actual parts depend considerably on part design, molding conditions, and testing methods, no guarantee is made or implied regarding values to be obtained in any specific test, part, or application. CI makes no warranty or representation as to the suitability of any of its goods for use in any application. CI relies on customer to conduct its own tests and judge for itself the suitability of CI's goods.
