COMMERCIAL VEHICLE

menzolit® compounds for Commercial Vehicles

One of most well-known, highest volume applications of SMC is body panels for commercial vehicles. High rigidity of large parts without the need for additional mechanical support, low investment costs (one tool – one piece), integration of different functions and elements, excellent paintability and surface quality, low weight and complex shapes possible – these are the main advantages of SMC- making it an indispensable material for the truck and commercial vehicle industry.
