Carbon Fiber FMC (CF-SMC) is a sheet-type intermediate material made of cut high-strength carbon fiber impregnated with thermosetting resin. This material can be press molded, substantially reducing molding time compared to conventional autoclave or oven molding.
In addition, compared with carbon fiber intermediates of Continuous fibers, the random arrangement of Short fibers ensures fluidity and makes it possible to mold intricately shaped parts like those with ribs and bosses.
