Traditionally high performance composite parts are manufactured from continuous fibres using hand lay-up and autoclave techniques, whereas volume mouldings are flocks and felts press-cured. HexMC® is a high performance sheet moulding material, suitable for the volume production of complex shapes and specifically designed for compression moulding that bridges the gap between high performance prepreg and low cost production friendly SMCs. The presentation will cover applications, grades and processes of this unique material.
