1. Introduction to SMC Junction Box

A Sheet Moulding Compound (SMC) junction box is made from a composite material consisting of unsaturated polyester resin, mineral fillers, and short glass fibers.

This material is formed using high-pressure moulding technology, producing high-precision parts that can operate within a temperature range of -30 to 200°C.

SMC is lightweight, allowing for faster and more economical installation compared to steel or concrete parts.

The electrical industry uses SMC material to manufacture SMC/FRP junction boxes and electric junction boxes. These products offer corrosion resistance, UV resistance, environmental safety, and low installation costs.

Available products include SMC/FRP junction boxes, SMC meter boxes, SMC distribution boxes, high tension current transformers, low tension current transformers, ampere meter readers, and FRP cable trays.

2. Applications of SMC Junction Box

SMC is a versatile composite material used in various industries:

  1. Automotive: Used to manufacture components like bumpers, rubbing strips, protectors, body panels, and beams.
  2. Electrical: Used to produce boxes, low and medium voltage insulators, waterproof light fixtures, and insulating parts for electrical devices.
  3. Railways: Used for seat frames, cable trunking, window frames, and partitions.
  4. Building and Construction: Used to create windows, cladding panels, roofing, street furniture, and gratings.

3. Benefits of Using SMC Junction Box for Electrical Wiring

  1. Shock-Proof Coverings: Made of materials that withstand various weather conditions, protecting electrical wiring from environmental factors and preventing exposure to temperature fluctuations.
  2. Prevents Electrical Sparks: Enclosed design prevents sparks caused by wire wear or tear, enhancing safety.
  3. Corrosion-Free: Made from corrosion-resistant materials, preventing rust due to rainwater exposure and resisting termites and insects. These boxes are waterproof and require minimal maintenance.
  4. Easy to Install and Use: Support both indoors and outdoors installation. Recommend professional installation, especially for waterproof versions. Easy to access and check the wiring inside.

4. Advantages of Using SMC Junction Box

SMC junction boxes offer several advantages:

  • High Productivity: SMC technology allows for high-volume production with superior reproducibility.
  • Cost-Effective: Reduces industrial scrap and labor requirements.
  • Lightweight: Lower dimensional requirements and the ability to merge multiple parts into one reduce the overall weight of the product.
  • Durability: Long-lasting and resistant to environmental factors.
