High-Performance SMC

At last year’s AZL Annual Partner Meeting, the AZL Partner Companies had indicated SMC as a major topic to increase collaboration. Therefore, AZL organized the initial Workshop, in which experts from companies, such as Plastic Omnium, BYK-Chemie, Menzolit, Polynt, Huntsman, Polytech Compo-sites, 3M or Henkel, discussed the potential of SMC for the lightweight industry. The workshop was initiated and coordinated together with Plastic Omnium and BYK-Chemie.

As a result the AZL has established a Workgroup on High-Performance Sheet Molding Compound (SMC). Within the initial AZL Workshop more than 60 participants from the industry – including several automotive OEMs such as Audi, BMW, Ford, Hyundai, MAN, Toyota and Volkswagen – defined research and development topics for the future AZL Workgroup.
