Materials Business

What is a materials business?

The materials have an excellent mechanical strength and is used for automobile exterior parts and engine covers.
It is designed for mass production and the productivity is increased by reducing the molding loss.
Furthermore, we collaborate with our subsidiary ACM in R&D and supply business regarding ACM materials

About ACM production materials of Korea ACM Co., Ltd.

SMC(Sheet Molding Compound)

ACM is a type of fiber-reinforced plastic, a thermosetting intermediate molding material made by adding and mixing in a curing agent, a thickener, a releasing agent, a pigment, and a low shrinking agent to liquid resin, and then and impregnating a fiber reinforcement agent to process it into a 1~5mm sheet form. It is utilized in diverse fields for its excellent properties such as formability, strength, tinting ability and surface property
