The Ultimate Lightweight SMC – iNVENTA 74109

  • 1 / 1

The 2014 Corvette introduction was exciting for MFG as it included a breakthrough composite material formulated by MFG Research. The upper plenum is molded from ultra light iNVENTA™ 74109 featuring a specific gravity of 1.11 — about 60% lighter than standard SMC formulations. It is manufactured at MFG CSC in Ashtabula, OH and contributes to the light-weighting of what many believe to be the most exhilarating driving machine on the road.

iNVENTA 74109 provides lightweight benefits comparable to carbon fiber — with a lower cost and easier processing. The properties are a good match for compression-molded parts in a range of applications where mass reduction is a goal. It is currently being designed into various components for future vehicles.
