Global Glass Mat Thermoplastics Market 2008-2013: Trend, Forecast, and Opportunity Analysis

Post Time:Mar 12,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:424

Research and Markets (

Glass-mat thermoplastics (GMTs) are becoming the material of choice for many automotive applications. Compared to metals, GMTs have higher strength-to-weight ratios and impact resistance. GMTs offer greater design flexibility and better resistance to chemicals and corrosion. They are also electrically insulating and have relatively high stiffness and good dimensional stability. GMTs are challenging traditional sheet-molding compounds (SMCs) as well. GMTs have shorter molding cycle times and an infinite shelf life, whereas thermoset SMCs need controlled storage and have a limited life. GMTs are also lighter and more ductile than their SMC counterparts and better resist impact at both high and low temperatures.
