The SMC process permits production of moderate to large quantities of dimensionally accurate parts with a high-gloss surface and has significant potential for manufacturing lightweight parts. With proper selection of SMC fillers, the weight of these parts can be reduced even further, because of the high volume taken up by the fillers. Expanded perlite can offer an economical alternative to established lightweight fillers such as hollow glass microspheres.
