This is the ultimate GRP process, high volume, high cost tooling and process equipment with many varied applications in the electrical, construction and automotive industries.

A physically thickened compound (BMC) or chemically thickened compound (SMC) made from reinforced fibres, resin, catalyst, pigment, filler and release agent is compression moulded at temperatures in excess of 130°C in a matched steel tool.

CRC are heavily involved in developing an alternative to group two metallic stearates commonly used, but with many disadvantages to post mould processing and product acceptability.
