New Products in Alternative Energy Require the Moldability and Durability of Thermoset Composites

Renewal energy applications represent a substantial opportunity for Bulk Molding Compound (BMC), Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) and Structural Thermoset Composites (STC®) materials. Solar power tiles and wind turbines are two ideal applications; both require material that can withstand extended exposure to sun and natural elements and composites with dimensional stability. In addition to providing superior material properties, molded BMC/SMC®/STC components provide exceptional cost savings due to parts consolidation. Other advantages of thermoset composites for energy include:

thermoset compounds for the energy market
  • Structural rigidity and weight
  • Resistance to UV deterioration
  • Resistance to natural elements
  • Fire code compliant
  • Dielectric strength
  • Electrical insulation
