Fibre-reinforced plastics -- Methods of producing test plates -- Part 8: Compression moulding of SMC and BMC
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2013. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 1268-8:2004 specifies the general principles and procedures for the compression moulding of test plates from two types of fibre-reinforced thermosetting moulding compound: sheet moulding compound (SMC) and bulk moulding compound (BMC). Two different methods are given for preparing the mould charge: method A for moulding without the material flowing in the mould and method B for moulding so that the material flows in the mould.
