IDI Composites International (Noblesville, Ind.) has introduced the Aeroform line of thermoset sheet molding compound (SMC), designed specifically for demanding small wind energy applications, where good strength-to-weight ratio, durability, UV resistance and low specific gravity are required. When molded, the materials are said to be exceptionally strong and able to absorb shock and vibration. According to the manufacturer, the SMC also resists a variety of corrosive and natural forces, such as UV light and moisture, and maintains its shape and performance attributes for decades. Components can be molded in color, or color can be applied after molding. Aeroform thermoset materials also comply with various safety regulations and fire codes.
