Abstract

Compression molding is the single largest primary manufacturing process used for automotive composite applications. This article provides a general overview of the compression molding process. It describes the basic design, materials, and processing equipment of three main groups of composite materials, namely, glass-fiber-mat-reinforced thermoplastics, long-fiber-reinforced thermoplastics, and sheet molding compounds. It presents information on the application examples and market volume of compression molding.
