In-Mold Coating Process for Sheet Molding Compound (SMC)

IMC machines (In Mold Coating) are used to provide molded parts made of fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) in the mold with a paintable surface. The press, in which the SMC was cured, pressure is relieved and the IMC material will be injected in the resulting gap between the mold and the SMC. Through this process, the subsequent priming may be omitted.

liquid, heat activated conductive in-mold coating is designed to enhance the surface of reinforced plastics, automotive, truck FRP body panels, or any molded part. GenGlaze In-Mold Coatings provide a smooth, protected, sealed surface that meets or exceeds most OEM coating specifications. They can be readily painted with standard automotive finishes using conventional or electrostatic equipment.
