Thermoset Composites

Hubercarb® Product Recommendations:   

Ground calcium carbonate is widely used in thermoset applications.  It is a key extender in fiberglass reinforced polyester applications such as Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) and Bulk Molding Compound (BMC) where it functions as a cost-effective extender with no adverse effects on processing or final physical properties.  It is used for viscosity control, to limit shrinkage and as a coefficient of thermal expansion. 

Because of their morphology, the Hubercarb® W products are less abrasive than most other calcium carbonates.
